SMAS (REGISTERED MEMBERS OF SSIP)
SMAS is a registered member of SSIP. Since the launch of SSIP, many Clients and Principal Contractors now adopt an SSIP approach to H&S pre-qualification and will only use contractors who hold a valid and in date Scheme certificate issued by an SSIP Forum member.
Holding a valid SSIP Member Scheme certificate means that we have demonstrated our Stage 1 H&S competence by meeting the ‘core criteria’ as set out in the Construction (Design and Management) regulations.
BUY WITH CONFIDENCE
In order to become a Buy With Confidence member, a business must first apply or be recommended to join the scheme and must then pass a set of tailored background checks. Membership of the scheme is not given lightly – amongst other checks, each applicant will have their complaints history reviewed and will receive a visit from Trading Standards. Good references are required from previous customers and applicants must agree to abide by the scheme’s code of conduct, which requires them to follow the letter and spirit of the law. Criminal records basic disclosure may also be required in some circumstances.
Only if all the scheme requirements are met, will a business be granted membership.

"Nick and his team are brilliant. Keeping a customer happy is quite simple really, be where you say you’re going to be, when you said you were going to be there and do what you said you were going to do. They did all this and more. The two boys who did the job worked solidly leaving three superb looking roofs and our property was left clean and tidy. Could not ask for more."
