    Used to do a few jobs for them, wonder how many contractors are going to lose money over this? this will put a few more companies in the shite.

    They are complete and utter bastards to work for. I'm glad they have gone bust, but the real people it will affect like the man above says, are the small businesses that subbed to them.
    I would never have worked for them on principle.

    Is that the principle that they are complete and utter bastards?

    Before they were ROK, they were EBC which was Exeter Building Company and a couple of spin off companies, one of them was called Hill & Lang. I did some work for them in the 90's and every cheque that I got from them, I had to drive to their offices to collect because there was always an excuse as to the whereabouts of it, or why it hadn't been done. I did a largish job for them at RNAS Culdrose for which there were a lot of extras, which, even though the daywork sheets were signed, I was never paid for. They used to send me 4-5 enquiries a week to price, get me running around the county like a twat, and they never even had the jobs.They used subcontractors to do their pricing for them.
    Apparently the 4000 or so staff will still be paid as long as they keep working. I bet the subbies don't get their money. The annoying thing is, that the quantity surveyors and managers that decide when to pay, or more often than not, when not to pay the subcontractors, aren't going to lose anything.
    Complete and utter bastards, as I said. Good riddance!
