They bring specific contractual knowledge and material sourcing skills into the business.”

Stowe says “I am excited to join Chancerygate as their director of construction. I am looking forward to building relationships and getting to know another side of the construction business as well as ironing out potential project issues early on by using my experience working for contractors.”
