In the building sector cost management, skilled worker recruitment and environmental regulations can determine the difference between a successful project or ultimate business failure.
Despite the backcloth of recession, the UK construction, building services engineering and planning (CBSE&P) sector remains a key component of the UK economy, accounting for around 6% of the total UK GVA and the third largest UK sector by employment.
A combination of weak demand, rising costs and falling tender prices have made for difficult trading conditions throughout the sector and resulted in high levels of redundancy and business failure.

Energy from fossil fuels consumed in the construction and operation of buildings accounts for approximately half of the UK's emissions of carbon dioxide.
