Balfour Beatty has said it remains committed to operating in the East Midlands despite the closure of its Nottingham office.
The contractor is consulting with the office’s 30 staff and is open to redeploying them “where other opportunities exist”.
In a statement, a Balfour Beatty spokesperson said: “We remain committed to the East Midlands through our offices in Northampton and Solihull.
“Our decision to close our Nottingham office was based on a review of our business and where likely construction opportunities exist.
“We are simply integrating our support operations into fewer offices.
“Around 30 of our employees are undergoing a consultation process, with staff being redeployed where other opportunities exist.
“These changes do not affect existing projects in the area.”
The office closure comes after last week’s news that Balfour Beatty had been hit with a £70m profit warning – its sixth in two-and-a-half-years.
Following the warning, chief executive Leo Quinn admitted that the company had become “too large”.
