About us

Experience counts!

Chipping Norton Builders is run by a highly experienced, hands-on management team with a dedicated, loyal workforce. Managing Director Joe Johnson, together with QS Chris Tristram each have over 40 years’ experience in the building industry. We have been involved on award winning projects with major architectural firms comprising the sensitive refurbishment of listed buildings to high specification, contemporary new builds.

We employ local labour and source our suppliers and materials as locally as possible. We’ll put together a team who work well together, is highly skilled, honest and hard working. Our site teams receive full health and safety briefings and are constantly monitored. They regularly undertake training and refresher courses to improve their skills.

We’re also committed to encouraging new talent in the building industry. CNB actively participates in the OCTG (Oxfordshire Construction Training Group) apprenticeship award scheme.

In 2015 our apprentice carpenter, Robbie Powell won the top prize for NVQ Level 3 ‘Apprentice of the Year’.

We aim to engage and collaborate with you at an early stage, as we believe our experience adds value and saves you time.  By working with you, in partnership we can deal with any challenges, if they arise in an open on honest way. With careful planning and programming we’ll deliver to you the highest level of quality, on time and on budget.
