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.
The downturn had caused a reduction in managerial construction staff with main contractors stream-lining the number of directly employed quantity surveyors, estimators, project and contracts managers to ensure they stayed afloat in the recent tough times.
Inevitably, with experienced staff retiring and others looking outside of the construction industry to find stable employment, the industry as a whole will struggle to meet the demands of rising workloads.
This is increasingly leading to quantity surveyors and projects managers overseeing a number of projects at once, making it even more important that they choose sub-contractors who can provide not only quality on site but also in their management and off site work.
At Reidsteel our clients have seen the benefits of working with us and have entrusted us with the design, supply and erection of steelwork and cladding and glazing time after time.
All projects undertaken by Reidsteel have a team of no fewer than 10 staff managing the project from initial design to completion on site, meaning main contractors and clients need not worry about the complications and conflicts between steelwork, cladding and glazing as this is all taken care of at our works in Christchurch ensuring all interactions can be perfectly co-ordinated.
All elements of our work are discussed with our clients through one of our experienced Project Engineers who will co-ordinate all disciplines from tender stage through to completion of our works onsite.
Many of our staff, whether designers, draughtsmen, fabricators or erectors have been working at Reidsteel for the majority of their working life meaning they have unrivalled experience and knowledge of steel structures.
The luxury of Reid’s experience does not come at a premium, our skills help us to design incredibly economic and efficient structures and also by combining the steelwork, cladding and glazing packages our clients avoid the risk of variations and conflicts between these trades, meaning the price which is quoted is the price paid.
