Default Re: Groundworks gang

£10 hr is a good rate for basic graft.... As said by a colleague yesterday "Navy jobs don't exactly attract Mensa Applicants"

Bear in mind a skip lorry driver tends to pay £10 - 11hr..... I know this because I am a sucker for those in need and have been driving a Daf CF all day for one of our suppliers.

I go out for min £350/day including van, hand tools, laser, cat scanner, disc cutter, kango. If they want wacker plate or trench rammer, generator etc I stick another £20 per item/ day on.
I have had £550/day for a 2 man crew in central London and they paid for parking! Fun, but I couldn't do that all day every day. Had to stop breaking for 2 hours at lunch time to allow an underground pizza restaurant to serve lunch. Still, the client told us to stop and was happy to pay. 3 days it took to dig 3no 500mm square x 1m deep trial holes to prove a foundation. About a days work in any other place
