I thought things had bottomed out as far as prices went last year but I was wrong. We have done a lot of work for a local company who have been good to us. We priced a few jobs for them at the start of last year but did not get them. Then they had a big job coming up in the summer of last year which they asked us to price. I asked the QS over the jobs what about the last jobs we priced to which he said they got them done for 10 to 15% less than our quote. I said that was very keen and he asked us to try this 1 job for that rate or we wouldn't be getting it. So we said we would give it a go as we hadn't much else in the pipe line. We worked very hard at the job and kept a count of the wages and fuel and days worked at it. In the end we just had an average weeks wage from it. We priced another big job for them about a month ago at the same rate to hold us over in the hope things might pick up. We didn't get it as another gang is dong it for 10% less!!!!!!!!! Is it getting worse where you are?
