    2010-08-13T00:00:00Z

    Aecom’s deal to buy Davis Langdon for £204m will further reduce the opportunity for smaller consultancies to win major projects (5 August, building.co.uk)

    Don't trust Shapps

    2010-08-13T00:00:00Z

    How surprised are we in the architectural profession that another government promise has been broken (Shapps delays definition of zero carbon, 30 July, building.co.uk)?

    Don't trust Gove

    2010-08-13T00:00:00Z

    Perhaps if Michael Gove identifies where the funding was coming from for both the capital and the revenue, the Academies Bill might be more believable (Gove defends “rushed” Academies Bill, 20 July, building.co.uk)

    The structure of water

    2010-08-06T00:00:00Z

    I wholeheartedly support the report by the Centre for Public Policy for Regions, which argues that maintaining investment in Scotland’s infrastructure will be key to the country’s future economic success

    Engineering less waste

    2010-08-06T00:00:00Z

    That civil engineering is to examine its cost-saving potential across the UK under the chair of Terry Hill (“Civils cost inquiry could save schemes from axe,” 25 June, building.co.uk), is extremely positive news for the industry, for the economy and for the environment

    Miller Group

    2010-07-30T00:00:00Z

    I refer to your article “Breaking the shackles” (23 July, page 16), which includes Miller Group in a list of refinanced housebuilders, all of whom, with the exception of Miller Group, are majority owned or controlled by Lloyds Banking Group

    Guess x estimate

    2010-07-30T00:00:00Z

    Dare I suggest that your article on SAP has the world upside-down (23 July, page 22)? The science world has only the vaguest quantitative measure of global warming and the contribution to it of carbon dioxide; the possible contribution of the UK to making a change in this is swamped ...

    Entilely mistaken

    2010-07-30T00:00:00Z

    Great series of articles about the Olympic site (2 July)

    Commit to low carbon

    2010-07-30T00:00:00Z

    Given the continuing delays to the Renewable Heating Incentive (16 July, page 13) and the recent announcement of funding cuts for low-carbon technology, we could be forgiven for thinking the government has lost its conviction in the fight against climate change

    Take our advice

    2010-07-30T00:00:00Z

    Your leader on the government’s health reforms and clients’ need for solid advice struck a chord with us (16 July, page 3)

    The next step

    2010-04-30T00:00:00Z

    I was one of the three graduates that did a small article with Building last year (11 September 2009, page 34).

    The greenwood

    2010-04-30T00:00:00Z

    It is very simple: if you want to save trees then use them.

    Where’s my cut?

    2010-04-30T00:00:00Z

    I enjoyed your leader on the perils of corruption in the less developed parts of the world (16 April, page 3)

    Channel hopping

    2010-04-30T00:00:00Z

    How many more consultations are they going to waste money on (MPs attack plans for 10-mile Severn barrage)?

    Springing into action

    2010-04-30T00:00:00Z

    I read with interest your recent article about how the growth of the UK economy is hindered by a shrinking construction industry (“Construction decline holds back UK economy”, 23 April) but I think that it gives the wrong – and worrying – message to our industry

    The £406,000 man

    2010-04-30T00:00:00Z

    As a chartered QS I read the article about the plans of the new boss of the RICS to woo disgruntled QSs (16 April, page 13) with some personal interest, as well as some sense of humour

    The whole truth

    2010-04-16T00:00:00Z

    The last paragraph of this article (“Bowmer & Kirkland pays out first £10m salary”, 1 April, page 10) is slightly misleading

    Short-sighted vision

    2010-04-16T00:00:00Z

    The assertion by Homes for Scotland that energy-saving regulations will add £8,000 to the cost of new homes is myopic nonsense (“Green guidelines could threaten Scottish housebuilding”, 8 April, building.co.uk)

    Save the trees

    2010-04-16T00:00:00Z

    I fail to see how you can propose the use of timber as a sustainable material (“How green is your brand?”, 12 April, building.co.uk). It takes many years for a tree to grow, unless it is of a pine variety
