Cornelec - I too have lost jobs in the same manner. I can understand why - an MCB and RCBO Pod for a MEMShield 2 is about £85. (£20 for the MCB and £65 for the pod).

10 or more of those circuits and it adds up to quite a lot.

Once I start heading towards being really uncompetitive (If I know I'm in a price war) I have installed a separate "DB" right near by the existing DB, with only double pole, din rail mounted RCDs on it, labelled up for the circuits that they protect. Some extensions of cables is of course required.

You can install 63Amp, 30mA double pole RCDs onto the din rail for fairly cheap in comparison to the MEMSheild 2 RCBO pods. and for every circuit under 63Amp.

A possible consideration for the future? It only really works if you have loads to do or the extra labour required makes a non sense of the extra materials cost.

Having recently replaced 1 mem mcb with a pod unit and mcb at a cost of £92 00 each,I a feel replacing a large number would be far too expensive and would be tempted to change the board.
