WOODSmith Wrap Up 2022

2022 has been a year for accreditations and accomplishments across the board for WOODSmith Construction Group. Growth has been rapid, but it’s no fluke, it’s a perfectly measured balance of hard work, determination and ambition. 

Gary Wood, Managing Director of WOODSmith Construction Group, comments: “We have achieved many things collectively across the board working together and long may this progression continue!”

Unchanged from 2021, WOODSmith continues to be committed to the health and safety of their people and maintaining excellent standards. These unwavering commitments and the hard work of the team saw them achieve their ISO9001 accreditation and the Elite level of CHAS accreditation in 2022. In addition, this year they passed the RISQS Audit, with WOODSmith meeting the health, safety, operational and competence standards necessary to work in the rail environment. 

Dale Smith, CEO of The SDDE Smith Group, has nothing but high praise for the business: “WOODSmith Construction Group continues to defy all reasonable expectations of such a young business, growing revenue by more than 500% across the year. The business has continued to grow and develop whilst upholding exceptional processes and standards, 2023 is going to be unbelievably exciting for WOODSmith Construction.”

Commercially, this year saw WOODSmith achieve tenders with Anglo American, British Steel and most recently with Story Contracting Limited on Middlesbrough Train Station. Work was also completed on The Styled Suite at Middlesbrough Football Club where WOODSmith were responsible for the renovation of their hospitality lounge and boxes. Huge clients for a construction company still in its infancy in terms of age. Long lasting relationships have been established with ongoing work continuing to flow through WOODSmith’s commercial sector. 

In the residential sector, WOODSmith have been going from strength to strength; this year they’ve had their highest number of projects, and their highest revenue yet. It’s not just the number of projects that have increased, but also the size, completing multi unit and large scale renovations. Furthermore, the residential team itself continues to grow, with two new colleagues joining the team in November. 

WOODSmith’s determination to be one step ahead has seen their first year’s annual turnover exceed their initial target of £500,000, securing themselves a £1.8 million turnover, and on track for £7 million turnover for 2023. 

Even after another incredible year, WOODSmith is anything but complacent. Their goals for 2023 are bigger and better than ever, and there is no doubt WOODSmith can achieve whatever they set out to.

WOODSmith Construction Group are part of The SDDE Smith Group and are committed to pushing boundaries to create better places to live, work and stay. In addition, WOODSmith are supporting their ongoing commitment to people, places and the environment, with their new ESG strategy launch in the coming months.
