And plenty to discuss.

Development Map.
Development pipeline.
New starts.
Volume under construction.

I have nothing but total respect and admiration for those that do this kind of work. I would literally shit myself.
Do they do the job because they have no fear or do they learn the job and you do overcome the fear?

Having not spent any great time dangling from metal structures does anyone know?

Fred Dibnah springs to mind. I tried to watch some documentary about him but it was hopeless. I just can't watch it and I used to be a roofer. The workers these days are no less brave but they have H+S and procedures which minimize the risk. I remember Fred saying, "You only fall off these once". So I switched over to Blankety Blank with Terry Wigan and realised death isn't all that bad.
