Yes, we are the main contractor and we can deal with all trades for your project. A multi-trade project is what suits our team best.
We avoid using external subcontractors every time we can, last year less than 3% of our work was given to external subcontractors and it’s going to be even less this year. There are some instances where you have to use external subcontractors, but this doesn’t happen often. An example where we would use an external subcontractor is for gas work since there has to be a Gas Safe registered engineer for this and we undertake way too little work related to gas to make sense having a gas engineer in-house.
It’s a very frustrating process to use external subcontractors and one reason why we are doing better than others is this one, we have an in-house team that we can organise ourselves and supervise all the work. When we use external subcontractors we have no real control when they’ll arrive (since they have their own schedule that might run behind) and they make us lose efficiency.
