Ronnie Wilson, CEO of Monaghan Mushrooms

The relationship between CHP and Monaghan Mushrooms started in 2007 when CHP were asked review to a contractor’s cost plan. In doing so, CHP shaved 40% off the original sum put forward and CHP was swiftly instructed as Commercial Managers on the Tunnel Tech North Bunker Projects. As time progressed, and the Monaghan project pipeline grew, so did CHP’s relationship with Monaghan. CHP ended up taking on the entire commercial and project management of each new Monaghan project across the UK and Canada. CHP became an integrated part of the Monaghan Mushrooms team through the trust that was instilled from early stage budgets all the way through to the completion of each project. In doing so, CHP has applied and adapted solid QS and project management skills to meet Monaghan’s specific requirements.
