Ian Smith

Group Managing Director

ian smithBorn into the family construction and haulage business, Ian Smith's drive and ambition lead to his own enterprise as Smith Construction Ltd was formed in 1994. Incorporating his diverse knowledge of the construction industry, specifically groundworks, major infrastructure works and heavy civil engineering projects he was able to present a comprehensive groundwork package to a small, regular client base built on trust and reputation. Strong management skills and innovative ideas ensured steady growth and he quickly expanded the company to include haulage and a small skip hire service, Smith Skips, operating from Head Office where Smith Construction Group evolved. Recognising the importance of a strong brand, there followed the acquisition of a highly respected local haulage and earthworks company and 'Taylor Contractors (MK) Ltd' formed and became part of the Group.

In recent years, all elements of the industry were incorporated from 'cradle to grave' as Ian championed the build and development of an in-house Aggregate Recycling Facility receiving material from across our sites. By mechanically reprocessing construction and demolition waste into quality recycled aggregates for resale and re-use across a wide range of projects, we meet our environmental objectives and ensure our prices remain low to Clients. Progression followed shortly after when 'Smith Skips' expanded within the group to become Smith Recycling (MK) Ltd dealing with all aspects of waste management and recycling of domestic, commercial and industrial waste. Development of a brand new Waste Treatment facility followed in 2010 and was established in Bleak Hall, Milton Keynes.

Always innovative, he continues to seek areas of progression and currently explores new methods of recycling materials working in conjunction with the management team at Smith Recycling.
