I always meant to do a post about some of the issues we had with the Building Company during our house extension a couple of years ago. Mainly as an exercise in self-exorcism and in as a minor act of revenge, since I fully intended on naming and shaming. This last part never really sat well with me, so I never did it. Short version: builders who did the work were ace and did a high quality job, but the boss of the company who PMed the work was a dickhead and couldn’t Project Manage his way out of a paper bag which lead to problems with the work he subcontracted out.
Every couple of months I do a internet search to keep tags on what’s going on with them. I just did one today and found out that they went into liquidation over the summer. Shocked , because I hope the chaps who worked on the house are ok, but not surprised because of the way that the company was being run (very much gone from being a small one project at a time to multiple projects with the same resources).
