Foreman of Works

Can you help?

I've recently decifered an ancester's occupation on a marriage certificate in 1913 as "Foreman of Works". Initially i was thinking that this must mean some sort of foreman in a factory, then i did a little research and came up with the idea that it could be a foreman on a building site. Any ideas? Am i on the right lines? He was resident in Colchester at the time (or so the certificate says).

Hi I'm an Ellesley from colchester the chances are he is part of the small enclave of ellesleys who live in or around nayland ( as i understand it the rest are still mostly in and around surry) I will ask some older members of my family see if they know of him if he was married in 1913 he may of been related to my grandfather.
