Developers have scrapped contracts and are looking at alternate ways of completing schemes that had been awarded to GB Building Solutions following its administration.
Construction News has contacted a number of clients of GB Building Solutions to determine the next steps in their schemes.
Among them is Countryside Annington, which is developing The Mount, Millbrook Park in London.
GB Building Solutions had been on site at the residential development, for which Glenigan estimated the deal was worth £25m.
However Countryside Annington confirmed to Construction News it had terminated the contract agreement with GB Building Solutions.
A spokeswoman said: “We are aware that GB Building Solutions, our contractors at The Mount, Millbrook Park, have gone into administration.
“As a result, Countryside Annington (Mill Hill) Ltd. has terminated its contractual agreement with GB Building Solutions.
“We are looking at all the options to progress the development as soon as practicable and mitigate the effects of the current situation as far as is possible.”
Meanwhile the Leeds City Region Enterprise Partnership has pledged its commitment to the Leeds Hilton hotel to which it is an investor, with GB Building Solutions to be replaced as contractor.
A spokesperson for the LEP said: “Following a thorough due diligence process undertaken by our professional advisers alongside other private lenders, the provided loan funds to Oxford GB Two Limited to bring forward construction of a large-scale hotel development in Leeds city centre, which the company would operate as a Hilton franchise.
“While we are sad to learn that GB Building Solutions has gone into administration, the LEP has provided loan funds to Oxford GB Two Limited – a separate company within the wider GB Group, which is understood to be still active and committed to the hotel project.
“The LEP and other private sector lenders will work with Oxford GB Two Limited towards immediate plans to begin procurement of a replacement contractor to finish the construction and complete this key project.”
