Are Contractors Destroying Your Business?

Quick 10 Question Survey

It Seems that every day brings another bleak headline for the UK construction industry.

And it is the Specialist Sub-Contractors who are suffering most. Here’s another example hot off the press from Construction Enquirer;

“… specialist contractors warn that late payment, zero or very poor margins and main contractor insolvency remain serious threats to their business over the next six months.
