Wirral-based KLM Construction enters administration

North-west groundwork specialist KLM Construction has gone into administration.

Administrators at business recovery firm Leonard Curtis were appointed to the £10m-turnover contractor on 26 November.

The Wirral-based groundwork contractor was founded in 1999 by Thomas Gallagher and was handed over to his son Sean Gallagher in 2009.

It was due to begin work on a leisure centre in Witham, Essex, and a Tesco store in Paisley in 2014, according to construction business intelligence unit Glenigan.

The company had worked with contractors including Barr Construction, Morgan Sindall, Seddon and Vinci.

According to its website, KLM owns its own plant machinery and specialises in drainage, roads, sewers, car parks, block paving and machine hire.

KLM was unavailable for comment. Leonard Curtis has been contacted for comment.
