I am delighted to have joined CHt and to be part of Laing O’Rourke, two companies I have known and admired for many years. I have started to meet some of the CHt team and have been really impressed by their knowledge and passion.

I am looking forward to getting to know the business and its people and working with them to drive innovation and develop exciting, manufactured products that help change how the MEP elements of our buildings and vital infrastructure are delivered.

Cameron Gilmour Business Unit Leader

CHt sits within Laing O’Rourke’s vertically integrated Specialist Trading Business Group (STBG), which also includes Expanded, Select Plant Hire, Explore Manufacturing, Vetter and GRCUK.

These companies make up the integrated supply chain at the heart of Laing O’Rourke’s direct delivery operating model, and their services are in growing demand in the UK as the market seeks to manage the uncertainty caused by ongoing inflationary and labour pressures.

Welcoming Cameron, STBG Director Peter Lyons said: “It’s fantastic to have Cameron in post. He has a wealth of engineering and business experience and has also worked on the kind of large energy projects that are a significant component of Laing O’Rourke’s future orderbook. His insights will be crucial to increasing innovation and efficiency within CHt, as market demand continues to grow for the certainty provided by our integrated supply chain.”

Cameron will work closely with Gavin Body, who was appointed General Manager of operations at CHt in February, to ensure the business remains focused on both the delivery of current live projects – which include Everton Stadium, Future Olympia and projects for the Ministries of Justice and Defence - and securing new work to grow CHt’s orderbook.
