Of the three main points the Specialist Engineering Contractors Group are proposing to the newly formed Economic & Industrial Strategy Cabinet Committee the last two points ring true to me.
Great innovation is presented to us in construction on ways to speed up project work constantly. These come in the form of new fan-dangled software programs to new building product introductions. Supply chain and framework agreements are supposed to smooth out the process. All this and every year we seem to be swooning over what the far-east are implementing, and how cumbersome processes are between developer, tier one & two contractors etc etc.
Likewise, via Trevor Hursthouse, for a couple of years at least the industry has been calling for a more level playing filed for SME's to enter and compete for project work.
Good luck Trevor, I look forward to reading the fallout.
The Specialist Engineering Contractors’ (SEC) Group is seeking government support for a three-point action plan to help the industry in the wake of the Brexit vote. Above: Trevor Hursthouse SEC Group has written to the prime minister seeking confirmation that construction is within the remit of the new Economic & Industrial Strategy Cabinet Committee, which has been set up to promote productivity and innovation. It has also asked the prime minister to consider targeted and action plans to raise productivity levels in all industry sectors. Chairman Trevor Hursthouse said that the industry needs to re-shape itself in the wake of the Brexit vote. “Having run an engineering SME for over 40 years I believe that the way forward for the industry, with strong support from government, is to focus on achieving greater efficiencies through eliminating wasteful and non-productive activities.”
