Carter USM

My initial take on the LSC contribution to Carters civil proposals was that they had steamed in too early in hobnailed boots. Our commentators thought so too as, seemingly, did the LAPG (though they are more polite than me!).
Richard gets a bigger platform for his views here and the remainder of those quoted seem to be in line too. In particular Christina Blacklaws echoes our interpretation of Carter’s grasp of “the dawning reality, of a fragile (CLS) market” which seems to have passed the LSC by.
Last week I spoke to a multi contract civil supplier who would experience an overall 30% reduction on the basis of the LSC’s standard fee proposals. No amount of “efficiency savings” are going to remedy that. A radical change in contract delivery might however, either that or fish and chip shops and plumbing as an alternative career.
