A Building Surveyors, Vic Reeves and A Rather Essential Statistic

Apparently, 94% of people who share blog posts do it because they think it might be helpful to others. The first thing that often springs to mind when you see a random statistic is the Guinness advert from the late ‘90s. The one with the Vic Reeves quote about how 82.2% of statistics are made up on the spot.

Regardless of its statistical validity, the notion of helpful content is utterly spot on. The future of the web indeed looks to be made up of a tiered internet led by the core themes of quality content and a sense of real community. With over 30 million blogs already out there we’d better get a move on!

And so, reader, you are very, very welcome to our shiny new Cardoe Martin blog.

Let’s take a moment to show you around and introduce many of the things you can expect to see, hear, and for that uniquely awesome 94% of you, get involved with and share the knowledge!

First things first, we’ll be posting consistent, down to earth articles on a host of topics which matter to the property and construction community.

Look out for the usual suspects like our classic Top 5’s/Top 10 lists, beginners guide to all things buildings & property, as well as monthly themed articles that focus on a seasonal topic. There’ll be podcasts and pictorials too!

We’ve also got plans to hand over the social media reins to a rather special guest blogger. Before we get your hopes up too much though – no, it isn’t Vic Reeves

We also can’t promise ‘journeys through time and space’.

What we can guarantee, though, is a blog that is consistent, enticing and memorable. Crafted by a boutique Building Consultancy with an insatiable appetite for its subject matter.

Why You Should Have A Contract Administrator On Your Project

Why You Should Have A Contract Administrator On Your Project

In the world of property, a Contractor Administration, known by the abbreviation CA is a role which is solely focused on administering contracts between the parties involved in the works. CA is an essential role that checks and monitors to make sure what is contractually agreed is what happens. All done in an honest and reasonable manner which puts the contract itself at the centre.
