Surprised they lasted this long tbh, been serious doubts about them for some time, indeed over a year ago on this very thread their demise was being speculated about.

 

As usual it's dreadful news for the employees.

 

I read recently they should be okay but we'll see.

 

Just those owed money totally shafted for now.

Another big one private company doing work for public sector has gone into administration. 

 

Funny you say that.

 

McGills of Dundee were responsible for upgrading all the kitchens and bathrooms in all Edinburgh council houses and they went into administration at the start of February.

The level of project management from the council in their roll outs is pathetic. A licence for contactors to print money, how they went out of business is a mystery, s'pose somebody's pockets were lined.

I don't know what happened with McGills but a big concern is these contractors going in with overly cheap bids to win contracts. 

 

Ironic with pressures on the public sector.

Very little profit in that contract.
