Chris Chambers

A very experienced main board Director, possessing expansive construction knowledge, Chris’ experience, natural leadership skills and operational knowledge and structure brings great depth to Hansby. His fluency in strategy development and implementation has been invaluable to the growth of the business. The operational relationship between Chris and the senior team also provides great depth for everyone to draw on and learn from moving forward.

As we work quickly to build our credentials for the future, his experience with procedures, policies and accreditations like ISO 9001 as well as establishing KPI’s on each area of the business will help us to create a learning organisation that allows the next generation of the company to gain not just the technical skills for the future, but also the softer skills often required for business.

James Hughes MRICS

James has over 20 years experience as a Chartered Quantity Surveyor and recently left Wates Construction having been Commercial Manager with responsibility for projects in excess of £100,000,000 as well as mentoring multiple quantity surveyors of all levels.

James is focussed on the devil of the detail in the procurement and contractual elements of the projects. Being a part of Tier 1 companies, in addition to the formal qualifications he holds, brings an extremely professional side to the commercial operations as well as being used to involvement in teamwork and collaboration.

Noel Minikin

A highly accomplished investor with an impressive buy to let portfolio built around Harrogate, Noel has progressed into main contracting. With an eye on the future of the company, Noel brings a very strategic and hands on approach, particularly to the construction phase of the project.

His sporting background in rugby provides him with a team approach in his management style. A great team player, Noel takes the lead on the labour resource planning where these skills are widely used. He also takes a lead role in strategic business development with both clients and future project sourcing.


Hansby were recommended to me when I was in the midst of an untenable position on a project that was no longer in my control. They immediately understood my predicament, swiftly engaged and guided me through the legal and practical journey that enabled me to regain total control of my project. It is rare in this industry, or indeed any industry in my experience, to come across such an experienced and skilled team of people that also operate with such a high level of integrity, transparency and commitment, taking full ownership of each assignment. I highly recommend them.

Oliver Connolly, Director, Ardengate

It’s was a pleasure to be involved in their recent project, and I’ve been impressed with the whole process and delivery of the project. I look forward to getting involved in larger projects in the near future.

S. Bryant, Private Investor

We wanted to drive our business forward during a growth phase, and the team at Hansby wasted no time in understanding what our business needed to improve. They have been an integral part of our recent success and we have been extremely impressed with their knowledge, ability and professionalism. We would highly recommend them to anyone who is involved in a construction or development business.

Noel Minikin, Director, NLG

We decided to invest our money as the interest rate is very appealing and such a short turn around. The team kept us fully informed with the progress of the projects and we were reassured about the status of our investment. We could not recommend them highly enough.
