CONTRACTOR GUIDANCE DOCUMENTS

 

Peter has produced an extremely useful collection of Contractor Guidance Documents (CGD) to help contractors with many practical issues associated with running an efficient building restoration company. They cover subjects such as enquiry taking, report writing, terms and conditions, guarantees, health and safety etc. They are not aimed at the technical aspects of the preservation business such as problem identification, treatment procedures etc. as these subjects are adequately covered elsewhere. To reveal a summary of each of the pack contents click the 'reveal'  link at the end of each pack description. Purchasing instructions and an order form is at the end of each pack description.
