Maunsell opens £1 a minute helpline

MAUNSELL IS to start a civil engineering helpline charged at £1 a minute.

Maunsell associate Steve Corbet, a geosynthetics expert, decided there was demand for the service after receiving 'three or four' phone calls a week from people wanting independent advice on geosynthetics.

He said people called him because manufacturers would only recommend the best product their company had to offer.

'Over the years I have been one of the few people outside the manufacturing industry who has really played a part in standards and preparing specifications of materials,' he added.

The number is a BT premium rate line, which means it costs the caller £1 a minute, split equally between Maunsell and BT.

Advice is free for the first 10 minutes. If the problem takes longer callers will be invited to discuss more conventional options. Tel (0906) 553 1152.
