How main contractors collaborate: a subcontractor's story (EP 103)



This week, Paul is joined by Angela Mansell, Managing Director at Mansell Build, one of the UK’s longest-established and most experienced sub-contractors in the field of SFS, plastering, partitioning, dry-lining and rendering.

In today’s conversation, Angela describes her experiences of how main contractors generally treat sub-contractors - what works, what doesn’t work and how she would change the industry. Across the episode, we cover how her supply chain management approach is different from that of main contractors and how she wants them to change.

If you are a Main Contract or Subcontract QS, this episode will provide you with real food for thought and is a must-listen.


Are you struggling with a lack of Quantity Surveyors?

A recent RICS Survey found that 54% of main contractors reported insufficient numbers of Quantity Surveyors available in the market, and at C-Link, we completed a survey that found 80% of companies find it challenging to recruit QS at the moment.

Are you one of those companies?

C-Link is software built by Quantity Surveyors for Main Contractors. We save 600 hours of Quantity Surveying time per project in automation. We can make your QS’ so much more efficient.
