That’s the message one engineer is sending to Government as it relates to the local construction market.
According to chartered structural engineer Grenville Phillips II, Government was “meddling” instead of allowing the market to determine which construction companies would be most successful.
He suggested that Government was preventing some firms from competing while awarding contracts to one or two companies.
“Why the Government feels the need to just give and not allow competition, I don’t know. What the Government does is pick winners and losers. By picking the winners it automatically picks the losers,” he said. (NB)
