Steve Smallbone

Steve in partnership with Roy Tyler formed Media Control Limited in September 1991 to provide HVAC commissioning services to the mechanical services businesses sector.

“Our first real breakthrough was a chance meeting with an old Consultant friend, he had just been appointed by the Whitbread Brewery to provide a template for their new restaurant chain. That in turn gave us access to a wide range of mechanical contractors”

Prior to that Steve had worked for a number of commissioning companies, undertaking hands-on commissioning and commissioning management throughout the UK and Europe.

Steve is now responsible for the estimating and business generation at Media Control, a role he undertakes with commitment and enthusiasm. On average 60 projects are tendered each month with the aim of being specification compliant and on time.

“Supporting our clients is my number one aim. If you can build a good relationship and help their estimating department secure contracts, it gives us a valuable insight to our competiveness and the work load going forward”
