The Chang family has been in construction in Jamaica for nearly four decades. In 1967, the late Clarence Chang, a land surveyor, started a construction company building schools, pipelines, and roads.
This company evolved in the 1970s and Surrey Paving & Aggregate Ltd was incorporated in 1994. Buying new and more sophisticated plant equipment, the company began competing for internationally tendered major projects. These included contracts funded by the International Bank for Reconstruction and Development, the Inter‐American Development Bank, Government of Jamaica, the OPEC Fund, the Kuwaiti Fund, and the European Union.
Surrey has since been involved in most major road construction and infrastructure projects in Jamaica, including construction of bridges, local housing developments, airports and terminals, water mains, sewer lines, and asphaltic surfacing. Today, Surrey remains a family‐controlled private enterprise that is extremely responsive to customer needs.
Our team comprises of regional and international professionals. Contributing the skill set in the fields of engineering, quantity surveying, accounts, land surveying, plant management, fleet management and operations.
Surrey owns and operates a fleet of small and heavy equipment through-out the Caribbean, allowing the flexibility to undertake any job.
Our head office is in Kingston. We also have an office in the city of Montego Bay. Currently, we have overseas offices in St. Kitts, and Nevis and Guyana.
