A Low Budget
Thomas Andrews was the chief planner that supervised the development and construction of the RMS Titanic. His arrangements for this rich and luxurious ship were cut short when Ismay told the chief planner that they needed to cut the spending on the ship.
The National Coal Strike
The construction of the ship was commenced during a specific time in history. The nation was under a fierce coal strike when the Titanic first saw the sun. This time period is now known as the 1912 National Coal Strike.
