Useful information for specialist contractors

With Carillion having gone into liquidation on 15 January 2018 and thousands of lives to be impacted as a result, Streetwise Subbie are already working hard to help specialist subcontractors caught up in this mess.

They have published a 6 page advice paper setting out some useful information for subcontractors who have been involved either directly or indirectly with Carillion.

Carillion Advice Paper

The six page advice paper deals with the following;

  • Why liquidation?
  • How will this affect you?
  • What about materials or tools held on site?
  • Registering your claim
  • Could your contract be novated?
  • What to do if this causes you financial difficulties
  • What you can do about it

#enoughsenough #buildfair4all

It's time that the government and every single decent individual working in the construction industry, whatever trade or profession, said "enough's enough!"

It's time to stop ignoring the payment abuse, and the shameful and degrading way that some of the big players treat their subcontractors and suppliers! 

And, because we only work with Specialist Contractors we know the kind of problems they face, and the solutions that work best to save a lot of time, and a lot of money.
