There are many trades involved in constructing flats and houses, from glaziers to carpenters, men from the gas and electricity boards, experts with cement, foremen, the original architect, and plenty of other odd-job labourers along the way.

The flurry of activity would be enough to send even a modest site into disarray with the slightest hitch, so when a large field is being transformed into a modern estate development of new homes, there's plenty more that can go wrong - and it regularly does.
