Steel yourselves

    Doesn't help when decisions are made by Q.S.'s which are purely based on price . With the prices being used and the quality of the subcontractor the question of sustainability and solvency appears to be very much on a 'backburner' for most principal contractors . The steel frame guys are an easy target due to the size of their bill and the cutthroat nature of the market at this time . A number have chosen to shut their fabrication shops and operate as 'brass plate' steel contractors. Do the contractors know this or even care!!!
