Difficult economic times, unrealistic budgets and modified non-standard contracts are the exact issues where the problem starts. From there it only becomes more difficult for the builder and the sub-contractors if something goes wrong. Yes, we are all entitled to get paid for the materials and work we deliver to a construction site but again if something goes wrong between the principals/developers and the builder where does the sub-contractor go to get paid. I don't have the perfect answer to the problem but I do know that fundamental changes are needed to improve our building sector and supply chain.
