MAC Surfacing | How do you choose your subcontractor?
When you’re looking for the right company to carry out your work, how do you make that choice? How do you come to that final decision?
Bringing a subcontractor onto your site means you trust them. You trust them with your job. You trust them with your reputation.
So, how do you know a company is worth putting your reputation on the line for?
Finding a company with the prior experience of the job is arguably the most important factor to consider when making that decision. Proven quality on the back of numerous successful projects sets out to ensure that you’re making the right decision.
MAC Surfacing is a family-run road surfacing business that was established in 2004. Since then, they have grown to service everyone from small and medium-sized businesses to large blue-chip companies.
Planer hire, paver hire, Labour hire, haulage and plant maintenance are all areas that MAC have built a stellar reputation.
A well-structured company sets the tone for excellence. Clear, defined roles to keep the machine working efficiently.
Divisional expertise sets MAC apart. The ‘jack of all trades’ approach is avoided, and the company has a dedicated, expert head of division to oversee their respective specialties.
Additionally, their 24/7 hotline is always manned, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year to allow for maximum levels of responsiveness to cater for client needs.
Independently accredited seals of approval add the peace of mind required to bring a subcontractor onto site. It’s an assurance. The stamps of quality a contractor need when relying on others to get the job done.
MAC Surfacing holds a plethora of widely recognised accreditations, including Constructionline, Avetta, FORS, Safeplane and more. A full look at the company accreditations can be seen here.
We all know how important cost is, and we’d all more than likely be lying if we said we didn’t consider the cost of something before we opt-in.
We also know that when we’re paying for quality, we look at the value and not just the price tag.
Cost often reflects quality and expertise. Cost can be a reflection of covering all essential legal requirements, the expertise to avoid issues, and the expertise to solve unforeseen problems should they occur – and therefore true value.
That value brings full peace of mind, that you have a company with the right systems, protocols, and qualified staff in place to put your trust in.
We spoke to Marc Copson, MAC Surfacing MD about what he feels makes MAC Surfacing the sub-contractor of choice:
“We win work based on our family values. On being a people-oriented. Being a company that is approachable, responsive, always at the end of the phone and, importantly, a company who tackles problems head-on and doesn’t look the other way or point blame elsewhere.
“People see we care. And that can make all the difference on top of other factors that need to be considered.
“Our core values include taking responsibility, doing what is right, being professional at all times and going the extra mile.
“These values come through in every bid we write, and every job we start. Our staff have these values instilled, and that I believe is what truly sets us apart and makes us the choice for many companies.”
