More Carillion staff axed as contract handover ramps up

Further Carillion construction staff have been made redundant as part of the contractor’s liquidation process, the official receiver has confirmed.

The latest announcement of redundancies sees 78 jobs cut; Construction News understands 46 of these are on construction-related contracts that have now been handed over to new contractors.

CN has also learned the roles of those let go include construction manager, engineering manager, foreman, managing quantity surveyor and project quantity surveyor.

More staff have been let go on the Royal Liverpool Hospital project, with CN revealing a few weeks ago that Laing O’Rourke is poised to take over, and the Midland Metropolitan Hospital job, which Kier and Skanska are understood to be vying for.

Carillion staff on the Angel Gardens scheme in Manchester, which was taken over by Caddick in January, have been let go as well as those working on the St Bart’s Square mixed-use development in London.

The receiver also confirmed a further 305 employees on facilities management, defence and construction contracts had been retained by new suppliers.

Last week Robertson and Sir Robert McAlpine announced they had each taken on former Carillion schemes in Greater Manchester.

Caddick confirmed that it had taken on 25 staff from the Angel Gardens job and other Carillion jobs, while three Carillion employees had declined job offers.

A Caddick spokesperson said: “We are delighted that so many Carillion employees elected to join Caddick Construction to ensure that the Angel Gardens project was able to carry on with minimal disruption to programme.”

  • I have construction opportunities in Iraq but when i contact the liquidators for Carillion to ask for contacts of the Carillion management team i am told it's too sensitive.
