With the 2012 Games, Crossrail and other major infrastructure works providing a steady stream of lucrative piling and foundation contracts, the question Is not ‘Will there be enough work?’ but rather ‘How will the industry cope with demand?’ But despite the buoyant market, competition remains stiff. Meeting increasing client demands requires continual innovation and a pioneering attitude – does your company stand out?
