It worked with major contractors including Bovis Lend Lease and Laing O’Rourke.

David Bennett and David Dunckley of Grant Thornton are joint administrative receivers of the company.

At the time of the administration the company was being run by managing director Stuart Hulse together with directors John Hulse, Ian Lambert, John Bird and Ricky Cabrey.
