The specialist education sector currently represents a significant proportion of H.H. Smith's work over the past 30 years. We have successfully completed major contracts for over 20 local authorities and negotiated contracts direct with a number of education establishments. Our experience in this field has led to numerous additional phases on the same site which in itself is a testimony to our performance and client relations.
Our expertise includes the following – nurseries, sure-start centres, primary and secondary schools, 6th form colleges & universities.
Project values have ranged from £50k to £6 million, from basic classroom refurbishments to the remodelling of entire school sites. This has included several sports halls and associated facilities, catering units, science laboratories and I.T suites.
Because of our commitment to the health, safety and welfare of the pupils / students, H.H. Smith & Sons is fully committed to the safeguarding of children. As a result, DBS, (Disclosure & Barring Services) checks have been carried out on all our employees. A list of all our employees with their CRB registration numbers is available on request.
We also insist that all our main Sub Contractors carry out DBS checks on their employees. In addition, all Sub Contractors have to complete a Contractor Assessment, and we require a list of employee names and registration numbers for all sites. Orders are only placed with contractors who have completed a Supplier Assessment where quality, delivery and environmental factors are recorded.
