Thank you Jasper

After 18 years with us, Jason Smith (Jasper) is moving on to pastures new.

We’re always sad to see great members of the team move on but, after 18 years’ professional and valued service, we can celebrate that Jasper is not only setting up his own building company, but also enabling his 16-year-old son, Oliver, to embark on a brick laying apprenticeship as part of the journey. 

A father and son operation, and true legacy, in the making.

Jasper’s first interaction with HB Projects Ltd was a ‘2-week bricklaying job’, the result of a conversation in the local pub. Little did either party know that this would lead to such a long tenure. 

He has since worked on countless projects, initially as a bricklayer and, following the relevant training and qualifications, for the last eight years as a Site Manager. Jasper admits that he was apprehensive about the move to Site Manager, but it is safe to say he has never looked back.

We asked Jasper which jobs during this time stood out. He said: “There are so many. I’ve worked on dozens of jobs for Asda, including many Home Shopping projects, but the job that gives me most pride is the new build store that we delivered for Asda, in Shepshed. A real sense of achievement when the ribbon was cut!”

Jasper adds: “I would like to thank everyone at HB Projects for making the last 18 years a fantastic experience. I believe all the knowledge and experience I have gained in this time will certainly help me going forward. I wish HB Projects continued success in the future.”

Michael Brace, Regional Director acknowledges Jasper’s contribution: “Jasper has been a great asset to the HB team and, although its very sad to see him go, you can see what great things he’s doing to help his son. I know our paths will cross again and I wish him all the best with his new venture.“

Thank you Jasper, for everything!

We all wish you, and of course Oliver, all the very best in your new chapter.
