2015 Will also see us make some great improvements in customer service and customer care, including supplying all our customers with a brand new project pack to keep all their documents in.
Simon is also really excited about taking a diploma in life skills and life coaching, to help with understanding the clients needs and requirements that may be over and above the basic requirement when having a project completed.

At times we have to go that extra mile for our clients, now if this means cleaning out a manhole that has got blocked due to cracked sewers or similar faults then this is what we will do, but then you get times when we are able finish early and go for a meal or simply have the odd day off.
All this comes with experience and customer care, which leads SM Construction to recently joining the Federation of Master Builders (FMB) and gaining the Trust Mark award and recognition after being inspected by the BBA.
The BBA is a governing body that tests and certifies in the construction industry. This stands for British Board of Agrément.
Following a recent inspection, we are pleased to announce that SM Construction is now entitled to display the Trust Mark badge.
In 2015 Simon will be running and swimming for Breast Cancer Care, because many friends and people are affected by this disease.
On 29 August 2015 he will be swimming 2 miles in Loch Lomond for the Great Scottish Swim. The Yorkshire Half Marathon is on 12th April 2015, and both events will be completed in aid of Breast Cancer Care.
