About Us


Benchmark Construction Ltd

The origin of NBMC came from my fathers company.

Back in the 90's and 00's my dad David Smith started his own company called Benchmark Construction Ltd. His business thrived on reputation and repeat clients, during a time when word of mouth was the best form of advertisement.

Benchmark took on many projects and would later go on to work with companies such as Ladbrokes, Morrisons, McDonalds and many more. However the company always stayed local too and looked after many local residents in the Burntwood and Lichfield areas.

Smiths Design and Build

After many successful years together David separated from his partner thus liquidating Benchmark. Smiths design and build was formed for David to run on his own. Once again Smiths picked up where Benchmark left off and became a pillar of the local community. During this time current NBMC MD George was brought up through the ranks and learnt his trades from the master tradesmen that David employed

New Benchmark Construction Ltd

After many more years of hard work David became ill and later passed away.

In honour of his late father George set up NBMC to continue "Smiffy's" legacy.

Several years down the line and with many satisfied customers of his own George decided to move south to be closer to his brothers. 

Poole was the location for the business to expand too and he has not looked back since. Looking to continue the legacy for the next generation.
