Editor's pick of the week

As the snow continues to fall this week, so does the survival of Multibuild. Construction and fit-out firm Multibuild is due to be wound-up as accounts filed at Companies House last month show the company is no longer a going concern.

Elsewhere more than a dozen construction projects have been left up in the air after developer Thornfield Ventures collapsed last week.

Flood concerns raised by the Treasury have put a spanner in the works for Bam PPP and Sir Robert McAlpine meaning they face an extended wait to see who has secured the £600 million Somerset BSF deal.

Laing O’Rourke has warned subcontractors they must make waste minimisation a priority if they want to win work on its projects.

House builder Persimmon aims to build 10,000 homes in 2010 and is looking to acquire land that has already secured planning consent.
