ConstructPRO launch FREE Education Programme for Contractors
As the UK construction industry braces itself for a prolonged period of uncertainty, specialist Construction Advisors, ConstructPRO UK LLP, has launched a FREE Contractor Education Programme to help companies protect themselves from potential financial difficulties.
The move follows the continued turmoil in the industry and the demise of a number of high profile construction firms, which have had a catastrophic effect on many subcontractors through no fault of their own.
The free programme is part of ConstructPRO's unique and welcome commitment to UK contractors via there Contractor Support mandate. This has seen ConstructPRO work with Business Gateway to support contractors with marketing, business development, mentoring and commercial support.
Using a combination of articles, whitepapers, webinars and free training sessions, ConstructPRO is looking to provide subcontractors with the tools and knowledge they require to deal head on with tendering issues, potential disputes and tax issues.
ConstructPROâ€™s Managing Partner, Yosof Ewing, explained â€œDespite recent figures published by the UK government which suggests the construction industry has picked up in the last quarter, we know that many firms are continuing to struggle and are expecting the tough period to continue for some time to come. The construction industry is a critical contributor to the wealth of the UK and therefore these firms need all the help they can get to succeed.â€
And with the significant cuts to public spending confirmed, ConstructPRO believes there is a real danger that construction companies could find themselves spiralling out of control as they attempt to secure work at any cost.
Yosof continued, â€œThis is a time where contractors need to take every possible precaution to protect themselves. Itâ€™s a time where companies must be 100% certain about their prices, the credit they extend, the contracts they sign and the strategy they adopt for getting paid promptly.â€
â€œToo many companies are unaware of, not only the legislation that is there to protect their rights, but the processes that MUST be followed to ensure their company minimises their chances of finding themselves in a dispute, without the proper information.â€
ConstructPRO has already published two whitepapers and has a further three in the pipeline as well as being in discussion with a number of major trade associations and groups within the construction industry to provide their members with the support required.
The programme is free and is there to provide beleaguered contractors with easy to understand, practical advice that will help them in these difficult times.
With free training sessions and a free advice line, the company is taking a unique position in the market with its commitment to help more companies survive the period ahead.
