More Carillion construction staff have been let go as part of the liquidation process, the official receiver has announced.
Construction News understands the majority of the 87 redundancies announced today were on projects where work had stopped and the contract had been handed to a new firm, which had decided it did not require the same number of site staff.
CN has learned that the majority of these redundancies comprised project manager and quantity surveyor-type roles.
The projects involved in this latest batch of job losses include the Royal Liverpool Hospital as well as the Vaux Brewery in Sunderland.
Last week CN revealed Laing O’Rourke was poised to take over from Carillion as the main contractor on the Royal Liverpool Hospital project.
The official receiver has also confirmed a further Carillion 150 staff have been transferred to new employers on contracts it had been working on.
This figure includes 28 construction apprentices.
Royal Liverpool Hospital NHS Trust has been contacted for comment.
