December 1st saw the launch of Bag a Builder, a brand new platform that connects tradesmen with homeowners and construction firms.
An idea conceived by individuals with years of experience and expertise within the UK construction industry, Bag a Builder is unique in that it only works with skilled, qualified tradesmen who possess a valid CSCS (Construction Skills Certification Scheme) Card, connecting them with reputable construction firms and homeowners across the country for a variety of jobs. Once tradesmen sign up, they will be able to log in and browse a host of jobs from both homeowners and construction firms.
The UK construction industry has undergone a major shift in thinking, with the drive towards a qualified workforce well underway. An increasing number of construction sites across the UK are turning away tradesmen for not possessing a valid CSCS Card. Statistics show that they have good reason to. 2015 saw 64% of construction projects completed on budget, with 40% completed on time, thanks in part to construction sites adopting a policy of only using CSCS Card holding tradesmen.
It’s not just tradesmen who see the benefit of CSCS Cards too. Homeowners are reported as feeling more at ease if tradesmen have a CSCS Card.
But what is so important about CSCS Cards?
Not only does the card demonstrate that tradesmen have the necessary skills and qualifications for their respective trade, a CSCS Card also demonstrates a tradesman’s understanding of health and safety. These three points are precisely the reason why skilled, qualified, CSCS Card holding tradesmen are at the heart of Bag a Builder’s business plan.
With homeowners and tradesmen set to be able to hire a wealth of skilled, qualified tradesmen, Bag a Builder is well placed to revolutionise the UK construction industry. The act of hiring tradesmen will never be the same again.
CSCS is the leading skills certification scheme within the UK construction industry.
