Creating, delivering and measuring social value in the built environment since 2006.

Services & Strategy

CHY pre-plans, implements and measures social value strategy for all manner of different projects. We work with companies from planning and tender submissions, throughout development and into operation, and help them make a tangible positive difference to communities.


Credibility & Clients

We are based in Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire but work with clients of all sizes on a range of different projects across the country and in Europe. Some of our recent clients include LandSec, Extra MSA, Hoare Lea and McLaren Construction as well as the London Borough of Barking and Dagenham and BeFirst London.


Campaign & Collaboration

Through radical collaborations with partners from in and outside our industry such as Landmrk, ODI Leeds, Constructing Excellence, Social Value UK, Greater London Authority (GLA) and Hoare Lea we seek to challenge the way people, organisations and companies view social value.


Rob Wolfe and CHY 

CHY launched in 2006 to help public bodies and private businesses to integrate real social value seamlessly into their operations. We continue to perform this vital task to this day, working with partners across different sectors to make a difference to people’s lives.

We live and breathe social value and the built environment. It is an area in which very few people specialise, but that is exactly what Rob Wolfe and CHY do. We believe wholeheartedly in it and, for us, this is a vocation and a passion.
