Costain signs up to Government Prompt Payment Code

Aaron Morby 10 years ago

Costain has signed up to the Government’s Prompt Payment Code after it published lists of stock market construction firms not signed up.

Other new signatories include and contractor R G Carter and Enterprise Mouchel, now wholly owned by Mouchel.

Construction minister Michael Fallon wrote to major public construction companies last November warning he would name and shame leading companies not signed up to the voluntary payment code.

The move saw a spate of sign-ups including Carillion and Laing O’Rourke prior to the list being made public.

Yesterday Costain’s name was added to the list of firm committed to paying their suppliers within clearly defined terms.

Major contracting names still to join include Galliford Try, BAM, Vinci, Wates and ISG.

Berkeley Group is the only stock market quoted volume house builder to sign up to the PPC.

Barratt Developments, Bellway, Bovis Homes, Galliford Try, Redrow and Taylor Wimpey are all named and shamed in official lists.
