    My brother in law designs production lines at his company and often has to construct new ones with minimal downtime – eg needs doing in an 8hr work shift. So it’s important that the contractors they take on arrive in plenty of time and are ready to go the second the previous shift finishes.
    He is down in Somerset and said he tried various companies in the region but they all let him down, arriving an hour or two late which meant the job had to be cancelled at the last minute. Eventually he tried a company from Newcastle – a huge distance to go for a contract for most people. That team drove from Newcastle, were on time, finished the job ahead of schedule and with the best quality of work.
    From then on he’s used Northern companies and had much better results. They weren’t cheaper as they had some distance to travel but he could rely on them to do a great job.

    what about health and safety issues–if an incident occurs–and people are injured by another party —according to your terms they are at the mercy of the market– not worth endangering your main job ?

    we have all the relevant insurances required by law to protect all consultants

    make hay while the sun shines is my motto, if it stops shining, change your business to service another growth area.
    However the sheer scale of global organisations based in the UK looking to occupy new real estate is astounding

    Didn’t realise the work was in America.

    I’m more tempted now.

    My God! STW has gone so far up its upper-middle class chuff that there is a thread about The Servant Problem!

    I agree with all those who have picked up on the spelling and grammar on your website. If you pride yourself on attention to detail and don’t demonstrate same on your website why should people trust you? Something of a ‘fail’ there…

    Watched this since it started. The only abiding opinion I’m left with is that I’m impressed with what you’re doing. You saw a market, you’re trying to make a business out of it (whilst holding down your normal job especially impressive)

    Some good advice here, some crap as usual.

    However, please drop ‘lol’ 😉

    I wish you and whoever earns a good income from your venture good luck.
