Construction cash retention's to be debated in Westminster

Alan Brown, MP for Kilmarnock and Loudoun, has secured a Westminster Hall Debate on the use of Cash Retentions in the Construction Industry on February 27 at 3pm.

The debate will argue that Government should decide on a solution to the issue of cash retentions, following their public consultation in 2018. It will highlight the need for legislation that can protect cash retentions and remind of the risk for construction SMEs if no action is taken.

The Specialist Engineering Contractors’ (SEC) Group has been urging the government to introduce legislation to protect or ring-fence cash retentions to remove the insolvency risk and ensure that retentions are released on time.

Together with a consortium led by Pay2Escrow and including a global insurer, a major UK university, industry participants and a specialist technology partner, SEC Group has been supporting the development of a retention deposit scheme (Retention Deposit Clearing House).

The debate is expected to last 90 minutes and it will take place at Westminster Hall; it can also be followed at Parliament TV.

Whitepaper tackles legionella risk

Low occupancy rates in commercial buildings could be leading to a ticking time bomb of water quality issues according to Guardian Water Treatment.

To help building owners take the right steps to prevent these issues, in particular legionella, the company has launched a new whitepaper – Locked down but not forgotten.

In the whitepaper, Guardian draws on its own data from over 30,000 samples taken from commercial buildings, predominantly in London, over a six-month period starting from April 2020 (when the first lockdown began).
