GETTING STARTED ON SITE
Direct labour tasks
Direct labour consists of hiring all of the individual tradesmen yourself. It is attractive when you focus on the financial cost savings only, and on the fact that being on site all the time you retain control of the project and finishes.
But direct labour projects typically take longer to complete than the main contractor route. You must also factor in the time you will need – you will basically be working full time on the project, with associated loss of earnings.
