Is Britain really a nation of builders? (INFOGRAPHIC)

At the most recent Conservative Party conference in Manchester, George Osborne used his speech to boast “we are the builders”. But does his claim stand up to scrutiny? The statistics on infrastructure spending doesn’t seem to back up the assertion. After cuts at the beginning of the decade, spending on infrastructure has crept up, but arguably still has a way to go before it is catching up with the international average.

Infrastructure has been identified by both government and business as badly needing investment over the coming decades.

Whether it’s the regeneration of Britain’s roads, new high speed rail links linking London to the North, or indeed ensuring that every region of the UK has access to the Usave high speed broadband, infrastructure potentially holds the key to providing hundreds of new jobs and unlocking access to new markets.

Eco-Friendly Paints: Colouring The World Green [Infographic]

As you may or may not know, paints and finishes release low level toxic emissions into the air during application and often remain some time after drying off.

These sorts of paints contain harmful chemicals which can effect your health in both the short term and long term, whilst always having an effect on the environment.

Which is why we’re introducing Eco-Friendly Paints, the natural and organic alternative which lasts longer, doesn’t contain toxins and most importantly are environmentally friendly.

Take a look at our infographic which will show you the benefits of eco-friendly paints, the different types that are available to you along with tons of worth while health information.

Well done John Elder & Ray Peters on a well deserved testimonial


Now that the coating repairs are completed on the Swan Baltic and Swan Biscay we wanted to thank both Ray and John for their invaluable contribution to ensuring the best possible outcome in what was difficult circumstances.

In particular, Superintendent Andrew Russ wanted to thank John Elder who he advises;

“Was outstanding in his support and guidance during the project and didn’t give an inch when it came to getting the quality finish we expected, in my opinion it was an excellent decision to employ independent paint inspector to protect our interests and we were very lucky to have such a hard working dedicated individual such as John Elder to be assigned to this project. I will be sending a thank you and an email of thanks and recommendation to his employers concerning this matter.”

Congratulations to our very own ICorr level 3 Inspector John Elder who just completed and passed the RMCI course designed for Super Yacht Inspections.
