Comment – Temporary fix is not the answer…

David Keane might steady the NFDC ship; but can he fix the holes below the waterline? In the period from its formation in 1941 to its 70th anniversary in 2001, the National Federation of Demolition Contractors had 31 presidents. Although the figures are queered slightly by the fact that Sidney Hunt Snr returned for a […]

Comment – Putting the industry on notice…

No more Mr Nice Guy – We will name and shame the industry’s late-payers. Like a demolition man that has to pay his staff, his chosen equipment hirer, his fuel supplier and his insurance company in order to work, I have a stack of people that I need to pay long before I can even […]

Comment – A dangerous precedent…

Massive fine could be merely the tip of the iceberg. Yesterday’s story about the monumental fine handed down to Mick George Ltd gained traction the moment I hit the upload button. In its first hour online, the story passed the 100 reads, 500 reads and 1,000 reads milestones faster than any other story this year. […]

Comment – Where are our thought leaders…?

In search of the left-field, outside the box, blue sky thinkers that will shape the sector. Sci-fi writer and author of 2001: A Space Odyssey – Arthur C. Clarke – is widely credited as having first conceived the notion of what we now know as a “space station”. Although it was a subject he would […]

Comment – Line in the sand…

NFDC President lives to fight another day. If anyone questioned the potentially tempestuous nature of today’s annual general meeting of the National Federation of Demolition Contractors, then those questions would have been silenced by the presence of the Federation’s solicitor on the top table from the outset of the formal part of the meeting. As […]

Comment – No-win situation…

The warring factions within the NFDC come face-to-face at tomorrow’s EGM. And so it comes down to this. The weeks of covert conversations, political manoeuvring and intrigue; the all-too-public blood-letting; the claims and counter-claims. All of this is now done, and tomorrow the warring factions of the National Federation of Demolition Contractors will meet to […]

Comment – Breaking everything but the glass ceiling…

Demolition could find itself isolated against the rising and welcome tide of gender equality. Yesterday I was asked how many women held senior positions in the UK demolition industry. There are so few that – rather than presenting a percentage or statistic – I named them. That conversation was the inspiration for this audio podcast:

Comment – Braced for impact…

The collapse of construction giant Carillion could have a devastating effect upon the UK demolition sector.

Going under the knife…

We can rebuild him. We have the technology. We can make him better than he was. By the time you get to read this, I will likely be in hospital with my head swathed in bandage. 458 days ago, I was hit in the face with a brick on a demolition site. The impact of […]

Comment – Should I stay or should I go…?

Debacle at National Federation of Demolition Contractors’ London region robs Federation of dream team. So one afternoon last week, my phone lit up like Times Square at Christmas. I was told – initially – that London and Southern regional chairman Rob Collard and his vice chairman Matt Phillips had both quit in a fit of […]
