Within a year of founding GWH, Grahame Chevalley and Hilton Grugeon AM completed their first industrial building in Thornton. Ten years and numerous major commercial and industrial projects later, we were the proud winners of the Master Builders Newcastle 2015 Excellence in Building Award. It was recognition of our passion for excellence, quality and the desire to build up and support our region's home and business owners.
Since 1995, we've completed a breadth of projects for an extensive number of local businesses as well as major Australian organisations operating in our Hunter region. From fire stations, business parks, hotels and shopping centres to bulky goods, warehouses, service stations and self-storage – every project was successfully delivered on budget and on time.
