SECBE Leaders in Construction is really well placed to help your business and its partners to understand and use the most appropriate tools and techniques to increase your productivity, predictability and sustained profitability.
Measured productivity in the construction sector has been rising steadily over the last 15 years – with a rapid 20% increase in 2011 as businesses made more efficient use of slimmed down workforces.
