    Abstract

    There is little in the way of research on ethical views in the project and asset management sides of the construction industry, and an absence of work on micro-enterprises. This paper set out to build material in this area aimed at establishing micro-enterprise views on ethical issues. Micro-enterprises, operating in west-central Scotland, engaged in a series of questionnaires and case studies. The questionnaires, issued to 300 businesses, sought views on four main thrusts within the ethics arena and responses received were expanded through case studies on three businesses.
