Britmac Ltd have provided professional road surfacing, repairs, resurfacing and dropped kerb contracting for more than 20 years. Undertaking sub-contracting and main contactor work, they delivery challenging construction projects for both public and private sector clients across the UK.

“At Britmac Surfacing Ltd, we focus on delivering a surfacing service that works for every one of our clients. By investing in high quality materials, equipment, and processes, we ensure that we deliver sustainable and cost-effective solutions. We pride ourselves on our outstanding workmanship and customer care, ensuring every surfacing project is carried out to the highest quality and safety standards.” commented Matthew Knowles, Director Britmac Ltd.

“Our experienced team take our Health & Safety responsibilities very seriously, both to protect our employees and the general public where we undertake work in busy environments. Gaining accreditation from SafeContractor following their rigorous audit process enables us to demonstrate our commitment to health and safety excellence to new and existing clients.”

“We were delighted to also gain SafePQQ verification as part of our membership. SafePQQ is an extension of the SafeContractor health & safety accreditation, which has verified our business against key business sustainability topics such as finance, modern slavery, right to work, environment and GDPR. This allows us to demonstrate to clients that we are a safe, ethical and sustainable company to work with, and saves us time when completing multiple client PQQs as we are already verified against common PAS91 question sets.” Continued Matthew.

Achieving UK-leading accreditation from SafeContractor and SafePQQ verification enhances a contractor’s reputation, saves them time and money when bidding on new tenders, and gives them the peace of mind that their health and safety practices, company standards and procedures are compliant with the law. Contractors are connected to leading organisations via our online portal, where they are displayed alongside their accreditation and verification awards to hundreds of companies that only work with SafeContractor members.

Gemma Archibald, Managing Director of Alcumus SafeContractor, said: “SafeContractor has over 20 years of experience helping contractors to evidence that they have sound health and safety policies in place. During the current economic impact of COVID-19 it’s more important than ever that contractors enhance their reputation and win work. We have the UK’s largest team of in-house auditors to work with contractors through the accreditation process and to play a vital role in supporting clients to meet their compliance needs."

"Extending our vetting of supply chains to include our SafePQQ verification in May 2019 was a natural step for us to help our contractors save time, money and to win more work by reducing the burden of providing compliance information to various clients at different times.”

"We’re thrilled that Britmac Ltd has achieved both SafeContractor accreditation and SafePQQ verification, demonstrating their commitment to best practice in health & safety and beyond. We wish them every success with their future growth and are proud to have them join our community of over 33,000 contractors.”
