Our History

The business was formed in 1981 by Barry Champion based around four key cornerstones:

  • Relationships
  • Confidence
  • Services
  • Reputation

1981 – The Birth of The Business

Starting out as a building contractor, Barry Champion dedicated himself to developing a skilled workforce with strict quality control policies.

The growing reputation of the company became its springboard to offering a comprehensive and more integrated range of services.

1999 – The Group

The Champion Group of Companies was formed in response to the increasing needs of the building and construction industry within the local community.

The group brought together core specialist skills, each able to operate autonomously within its specific remit, whilst representing a key element of a comprehensive service package.


We’ve always been proud of our expertise and achievements, starting with a real determination amongst the management team to always be the best we possibly can be. This pride runs through the entire group from bottom-to-top.

We’re also incredibly proud of the area we live and work which is why we are investing in our new premises in Basingstoke scheduled for completion in 2019.

  • We have recently completed 12 months without a RIDDOR incident in the building division which means we have a rolling AFR of zero which is a fantastic achievement. I wanted to thank you personally for your contribution. As a manager, you are responsible for putting people to work and to ensure that the men that work under you understand their own personal responsibility for safety as well as looking out for each other. Your role as manager is vital in ensuring that everyone that works on one of our sites goes home safely.

  • The Champion Group have been real champions when it comes to supporting Ark Cancer Centre Charity, with many of the team going the extra mile to raise funds for, and awareness of, Ark and our campaign to raise £5million towards a much-needed local cancer treatment centre.
