Stepnell's use of subcontractors is defined by our approved management procedures, which our management teams use to identify, select and manage suitable contractors. Our procedures differentiate between subcontractors and their employees as we recognise that different parameters must be applied to them to provide a quality service. Our overall policy is to use the best available resources to achieve the best result for our clients.
Subcontractors are generally selected from our approved list on our database. These companies have been vetted to ensure that they have the appropriate public liability insurance and a health and safety policy.
Stepnell’s delivery of timely projects, whilst managing costs and controlling quality is only delivered by careful supervision by our own staff who are answerable to the Contract Director. Stepnell therefore do not employ agency staff and do not let whole contracts to others. Stepnell do however accept that specialist subcontractors have the in-depth knowledge required in many fields and these specialist elements will be let to partners who have demonstrated their competencies and are willing to work with Stepnell in the delivery of successful projects. Such areas include; Mechanical and Electrical Installation, Structural Steelwork, Cladding and Roofing.
