Reduce waste in construction costs, yes, but let’s not go back to the 60’s…

“In the Sixties, everything was built cheaper, faster and nastier. If you are going to try to fix buildings, then really you won’t have too many problems with anything built earlier than the Fifties or after the Eighties.” Paul Morrell, government chief construction adviser (Source: The Times, January 25 2010)
