Prolonged winter conditions impacting hard-hit construction.

Getting back on programme with Andrews Sykes

Construction companies have found it tough to deal with prevailing economic challenges. The prolonged ‘double dip’ winter has exacerbated their situation by impeding progress while ‘wet trades’ take even longer to dry out

A recent example where a major National House Builder struggled to keep a substantial apartment complex on schedule brought the issues into sharp focus. Cash flow, extended need for preliminaries and site set up, and the missed opportunity to get the development ‘market ready’ all put stress on what is already a highly competitive business model

Andrews Sykes has a comprehensive range of ‘site friendly’ dryers, axial fans and heaters developed to alleviate these challenges for construction, all available to hire 24/7, 365, supported by 360 degree service. In this case we surveyed the site set up straight away and created and delivered a site-specific solution within hours, enabling the programme to be accelerated. The delighted contractor is now ‘back on track’.
