Ensure You Insure
Insurance in building is not only prudent, but is also most likely a contract requirement and may be a legal requirement. Some deem it a “necessary evil” and others strongly believe in the protection of their business which it provides. Regardless, any builder without appropriate insurance risks the success of their business and potentially their personal assets.

My Career in Construction – Terry John
My career in construction had something of an unorthodox beginning. After the loss of my mother at an early age my father became my role model. He was employed as a foreman for a construction firm, and so the story begins. With a male dominated upbringing he might also be responsible for my love of motorbikes and adrenaline packed activities.
