In the wake of recent news that construction giant Carillion has filed for liquidation, Mark Farmer, CEO of Cast, gives his expert opinion on the potential reasons for the company’s unfortunate and how this reflects on this industry.

“I think there is a deep-seated issue with construction delivery models at the moment…construction is a turnover and cash-based model…this means the risks of being able to be responsible and being able to deliver predictable outcomes for clients is gradually increasing, particularly as we move into a skills crisis in construction where it’s more and more difficult to get the right calibre of people working on construction projects”, says Farmer.
