About C&I Smith

C&I Smith is a specialist brickwork, blockwork and masonry subcontractor.

A family run business, C&I Smith Building Contractors owes its name to brothers, Colin and Ian Smith.

C&I Smith Building Contractors have delivered a highly reputable, professional service to the UK construction industry since 1996. March 2009 saw the development of C&I Smith Building Contractors into a limited company.

Since 2008, the company has grown significantly, and C&I Smith Building Contractors have been securing large masonry packages on a full fix basis as well as a labour only basis.

With a view to providing a stable, dynamic service to our clients, C&I Smith Building Contractors embrace partnering with clients. We are always willing to find the best solution for all parties involved to achieve the most successful outcome.

Since 2008 our business has been securing large packages on a full fix basis most notably “The Humber Centre Development” for Simons Construction and “The Northern Ballet” in Leeds for Wates Construction. Partnering and managing strategic alliance agreements with key clients is where C&I Smith feel will help the growth of the company and have formed partnering agreements with several blue-chip national and regional clients.

Our mission statement is:

•To provide our customers with the highest level of quality construction services at a fair and market competitive price.

•To ensure the longevity of our company through repeat and referral business achieved by customer satisfaction in all areas including timeliness, health and safety, attention to detail, service minded attitudes and ongoing training.

•To maintain the highest level of professionalism, integrity, honesty and fairness in our relationships with our suppliers, subcontractors, professional associates and customers.

” I have worked with C&I Smith for the past 15 years on numerous projects and have always found them to be an exceptional Sub Contractor. Their approach to delivery is exemplary and they are renowned for having a proactive and can do attitude in all aspects of their works. I would have no hesitation in recommending C&I Smith to other Contractors. ”

Mark Ashcroft

Commercial Manager, Wates Construction

” From the very beginning it was clear that C&I Smith stood above other contractors. Their early involvement helped design out inefficiencies, they identfied scope gaps, contributed towards programme issues and helped towards a better sequencing works. C&I Smith are a very good company and I will certainly be working with them again. ”

Paul Russell

Project Manager, Interserve Construction

” I have worked with C&I Smith on various projects over the years, and have always found them to pay close attention to Health & Safety, delivering quality and ensuring they complete their works in line with the programme. Commercially they adopt a very open and honest way of working, they are keen to support the team in finding ways to potentially save money but always maintain quality and programme. I would not hesitate in using them again. ”

Matt Travis

” From our initial meeting with C&I Smith until the completion of the build I found them to be thoroughly professional in their approach and attitude. The site team paid particular attention to maintaining quality and high standard of Health and Safety. This culminated in the work being completed on time and to a very commendable standard. In addition, all commercial aspects of the contract were carried out in a prompt and proficient manner. ”
