Guide to choosing a Surfacing Contractor

Choose a surfacing contractor you can trust. HMS highlight the qualifications, certifications and awards you should look out for when choosing a contractor.

At HMS we know that choosing a surfacing contractor, or any outside service can be a daunting task. With so many companies out there with convincing websites, social media presence and reviews (or not!) it really can be a minefield to ensure that your money, and the quality of your finished scheme is in safe hands.

We try and keep things simple and relevant. Our company is ISO 9001:2015 accredited for the quality of our operations across the board. Our operatives all hold NVQ’s from City and Guilds accredited providers. They also all hold CSCS skilled worker cards as a minimum.

Our business is also CHAS accredited, meaning every aspect of our Health and Safety policies and procedures are regularly vetted and scrutinised for improvement and compliancy.

Several of our products and services are audited and approved by HAPAS & The British Board of Agrément to ensure their suitability for use out on our highways, where safety of road-users is the paramount consideration.

All of our client reviews are submitted through Google, to ensure that what you read about us is genuinely the experiences of our legitimate customers across multiple sectors.

We are very happy to offer our prospective clients recommendations and references from our customer base, and advise of previously completed projects that can be viewed to demonstrate our high quality of products and service.

HMS is insured to an exceptionally high level, meaning that our work with the public, our product and our services are never compromised.

We have been trading within highways and surfacing related sectors for in excess of 30 years, with our dedicated in-house workforce have decades of experience between them.

Trust HMS to efficiently deliver on your next project, and take the guess-work out of sub-contractor procurement!
