Felton Construction plunges into administration

Merseyside-based contractor Felton Construction has plunged into administration putting the future of a flagship medical centre in doubt.

Reports in the Liverpool Daily Post revealed administrators from Liverpool city centre-based Parkin S Booth were called in by Felton following talks with bankers at Natwest.

The business, which employs 45 staff, was established in 1985 and had a turnover of £32 million in the year to 31 December 2008.

The collapse throws an air of doubt over the £3.9 million Laird Street Medical Centre, in Birkenhead, was scheduled to be completed in October of this year by Felton Construction.

New Ferry councillor and member of Wirral’s economic regeneration committee, Steve Niblock, described the collapse as “another disappointing blow for the area”.
