Why use SML Contracts?

Our existing customers find it easy to choose SML again

Whether they want us to tender in completion, or to negotiate a scheme critical to their own operations, they know we offer value for money, commitment to service and wide technical capability.

If you are a potential new customer or professional advisor, and are considering widening your contractor supply chain, talk to us.

We will be honest about our suitability for the requirement and in our advice.

Existing customers particularly value our ability to work safely and to time where others might not be trusted to go; for example refurbishing an operating theatre just metres from patients undergoing surgery, or refurbishing a public space working in overnight shifts unseen by the daytime crowds.


Above all, we are trustworthy, professional and amiable

Construction is not easy, but we enjoy it and want all our partners to share in that.
By working for your success, ours is assured.

Our Directors

Our Directors are engaged in every project, decisions and leadership are available at the front line, not at a remote and disengaged management team.

Ready to respond

We are ready to respond for our customers and their advisors, reacting to small value but urgent needs without hesitation.

Meet & exceed

We meet and exceed compliance and governance standards for industry accreditations, yet we are not bureaucratic.

Strong & secure

Our finances are strong and secure, with Directors who own and nurture the future.

Sharp attention to detail

SML Directors provide the reassurance and competencies from their previous experience working for larger contractors, but with efficient overheads and a sharp attention to detail.

Competitive and transparent

Our tendering is competitive and our cost reporting is transparent.

Quality and service delivery

Our Directors, workforce and supply partners bring loyalty, skill and passion; so we can all look back together with pride in our quality and service delivery.

SML Contracts are an AWARD winning Contractor

Having been awarded the Plymouth Hospitals NHS Trust Contractor of the Year in March 2012. Lesley Darke, Deputy Chief Operating Officer and Principal of The Estates department, who nominated us, said:

“SML have worked in the Trust for the last 4-5 years undertaking a number of contracts that are fundamental to the delivery of quality patient care. All this work they have won on the back of a competitive tender process and have consistently provided a quality service and value for money for the Trust.



She further added: “They have become very familiar with the hospital and have become experts in managing building schemes in relation to infection control measures, managing operational disruption and communicating effectively with Trust Staff, Clinical and Non Clinical. They consistently deliver to a high standard and they always deliver within cost and to time.

What our clients say?

“SML Contracts proved to be a very professional and reliable contractor on this scheme which involved the conversion of a listed building. Their organisation and co-operation on the project was excellent and the scheme was finished to a high standard and within the required time constraints. I would recommend SML Contracts for further projects of this nature.”

Tony German, Lead Consultant from Croft Surveyors


“SML have carried out a great project for Plymouth City Council. All works were carried out to a very high standard. The project had to be carried out within a very, very tight timescale and was completed even earlier than expected. I look forward working with SML on future projects for Plymouth City Council.”

Plymouth City Council Surveyor Marlene Giebelen
