I thought it might be helpful to provide a brief client's viewpoint on ASUC at a time when the underpinning industry is in some difficulty, primarily as a result of a seasonal reduction in workload. (ASUC to the Jaw, NCE 24 October), but also as a reflection of new engineering techniques.

ASUC does not exist solely to satisfy insurers requirements, but rather to improve the standard of an industry sector which has historically suffered from poor performance at all levels, and to represent foundation specialists at a strategic level.

Its formation has led to significant progress in many areas, including health and safety, and is an excellent construction industry response to the challenges set by Egan and Latham.
