The Team

We have a strong team of both directly employed staff and trusted subcontractors with a wide range of experience and expertise

Martin Hume

Managing Director

Martin founded the business some 20 years ago. Originally a builder, he diversified into tiling for many years and now combines the two within Colne Valley Contracts. Martin is a very hands on MD; you are more likely to find him on site getting stuck in to the job than pushing paper in the office. This on site presence and face to face contact with clients enables him to push jobs forward and deal with any issues directly as they arise, coming up with solutions and ultimately getting the job done.

Trevor Down

Contracts Manager and Estimator

Trevor joined the company in 2015, after working at a senior level in a national construction company for many years. A qualified engineer, he has a wealth of experience in the industry, which he applies to provide technical advice as well as value for money quotations and successfully overseeing many of our projects.

Ben Stone

Contracts Manager and Health & Safety Director

Ben is primarily responsible for managing our tiling and leisure centre refurbishment projects. A competent qualified tiler himself, like Martin he is usually physically working on site as well as overseeing others. He is also responsible for the firm’s health and safety, preparing risk assessments and method statements for all our projects.

George Hume

George joined the company as an apprentice straight from school and after a couple of years shadowing his seniors, he is now a competent (and one of the hardest working) members of the team.
