TONY WINCH

Chairman & Founder

Tony established Chisholm & Winch in 1973 with his late business partner, Jim Chisholm.

A skilled construction professional, he has been instrumental in nurturing the company’s culture of collaboration across disciplines and the client/contractor relationship. He leads by example and his can-do approach to overcoming challenges and resolving buildability issues has been instrumental in creating our reputation for innovative solutions and a positive approach to meeting clients’ needs.

Tony’s experience includes a diverse range of projects from heavy superstructure to high quality fit out, on both commercial and residential developments. He truly lives and breathes construction and has also worked on his own listed 16th century farmhouse in Essex and house renovation in South West France to indulge his ‘hobby’ over the recent years.

SIMON CASTLE

Managing Director

A construction professional with 40 years’ experience, Simon first joined Chisholm & Winch in the late 1980s and returned in 1995 as a project manager. He has since played a key role in delivering the company’s operational and commercial strategies, which led to his appointment as a Director in 2001, followed by his appointment as Managing Director in 2006.

Simon’s belief that project and commercial management must be integrated in a unified approach to construction has been a guiding principle for the business under his tenure as MD. He is passionate about maintaining a collaborative approach across the delivery chain, which has maintained the company’s culture of openness and integrity and ensured a positive work environment and long-standing client relationships.

Simon has always been a keen footballer and has only recently begun to consider hanging up his boots in favour of golf. In the meantime, his real passion remains off-piste skiing.

JASON WINCH

Health & Safety and Procurement Director

Jason was been our Health & safety Director since 2001. Alongside Health & Safety Management, his remit includes procurement of construction plant and materials, quality & environmental management and responsibility for individual training plans.

NEBOSH Health & Safety certified, he has been instrumental in helping Chisholm & Winch achieve several accreditations.

Outside of work, Jason trains for his varied charity fundraising activities, which have included running the London Marathon and skydiving in aid of children’s Leukaemia charities.

BARRY PEPPIATT

Construction Director

With more than 40 years of construction and fit out experience, Barry’s role involves problem solving for clients and construction teams across everything from procurement to buildability. He brings considerable design expertise to the team, ensuring that finished projects achieve the client’s requirements.

Hands-on and involved in guiding the client through design and specification, Barry works collaboratively with both the client and the team on site to ensure projects are successfully delivered on time and on budget.

Outside the office, Barry enjoys the great outdoors and counts both mountain biking and sailing amongst his leisure activities.
