New Enquiries; picking up the pieces.

We’ve recently had a lot of new enquiries who had hired other companies within our field coming to us instead to complete the final stages of their projects. Some of these other companies had completed the planning drawings, and then refused to prepare the drawings for the next stage.

When we look at these plans, we can see why the other companies were unwilling to complete the technical plans; the designs they proposed are unbuildable in some cases.  That leaves us in a difficult position because it’s not professional to criticise other companies, but when I tell these potential clients that we’d have to start again, I also have to explain why we couldn’t just adopt their current plans. Starting again has to be reflected in our costs, which doesn’t usually go down too well…
