Winners at Construction Enquirer Awards 2017

We are delighted to announce we have scooped a prestigious national award. This top honour came in the Construction Enquirer awards.

We were named Best Specialist Contractor to Work With (Under £25m) category.  We were also awarded a top 10 spot in the Best Specialist Contractor to Work For (Under £25m) category.


The awards ceremony was held at the Birmingham NEC and hosted by TV’s Amazing Spaces presenter George Clarke.

More than 10,000 votes were cast for favourite companies to work with and do business with by the trade magazine’s subscribers.


Our Business Development Director Dan Williams: “We were delighted to receive this honour. It is humbling to know that many of the companies with which we work voted for us.

“To be able to say that we have been judged by our peers as the best firm in our category in the country is an outstanding achievement and certainly demonstrates that the care and expertise with which we treat clients is being recognised.”

“It is testament to the loyalty, skill and dedication of our brilliant team at SMD. Their hard work has, as ever, been consistently excellent in delivering the best possible service to all our customers.”

The honour followed 2016’s top 10 spot in the Best Specialist Contractor to Work For (Under £25m) category.

We were also named in the top three companies in the Business of the Year category in last year’s Dorset Business Awards.
