Main Contractors getting too busy to co-ordinate all the trades?

Many are reporting that  the construction industry is beginning to show signs of growth with more projects moving through planning and onto UK construction sites.

Trading Standards now have a new regulation to enforce, the Construction Product Regulation (CPR).

What does the CPR say?

It states that if a construction product is covered by a harmonised standard (hEN) […]

By Tim Stiff, Senior Technical Director at Management Services

Components of the DFID-funded Rural Access Programme (RAP) in Nepal have been shortlisted for three major awards from British Expertise in recognition of the programme’s wide-reaching and sustainable impact on the lives of some of the world’s poorest people.
