9780727758309: The Contractors: The Story of British Civil Engineering Contractors

Building on the success of The Civil Engineers, The Contractors charts the development of contracting from the early days of direct labour, through the canal building of the18th century when contractors began to emerge as a major force in construction, railway development, motorway construction, privatisation and two world wars, to the international companies of today. A comprehensive study of the men and machines that have had an impact around the world on major civil engineering and construction projects and made the industry we see today. With direct involvement and contributions from the construction industry and lavishly illustrated with full colour illustration, the book includes biographies of some of the key figures in the industry, with many of these names still seen in the names of companies trading today, such as Sir Robert McAlpine, Sir Edmund Nuttall, George Balfour, Sir John Laing, Sir Richard Costain, Olaf Kier and Ray O'Rourke.
