    He left me an email then gave me 2 missed calls... i rang him back.... and he said hes putting out a contract for 2 newly built buildings in a specific area... he goes to me that hes the contract manager and he wants a reasonable price and he said he wants a method statement etc

    He also said that hes in charge of the elictrical and all that.. i never really understood him at first he was to professional for me lol but i acted professional back i was like oh so your putting a tender out he was like yeah yeah

    1 building is 5 storeys high.... :eek:

    Also i asked him when the contract starts... he said to me in novemeber for a 15 month period

    He found me on google aswell he said

    the 5 storey high building is every week

    Beware of "eggs in one basket". If you are tied to one big contract every week if it goes wrong for whatever reason, you could be stuck. Or you could be forced down the route of taking on others to cope with this.

    Have you done 5 storey work yet? Be interested to know how easy, or otherwise, it is.

    In the words of my old games teacher "Have a do, son! " :D

    I think you are foolish passing it on. Have you even seen it yet? Why would you need a cherry picker? What smax have you got?
