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.
Half the 228 contractors surveyed by trade body B&ES said tender prices were lower than they were six months ago – and that, while labour costs had remained more or less static, there had been a significant increase in the cost of materials.”
That’s just part of the story and we want your help as a UK Specialist Sub-Contractor to take a few minutes to complete our own on-line survey.
