Building contractor enters administration
Administrators have now been appointed for Lakesmere – a company that provides roofing, cladding, specialist façade and building envelope construction services across the UK.
Out of the 241 workers employed for the firm, 109 have been made redundant. The administration comes after months of financial struggle arising from a number of unprofitable contracts.
Lakesmere Group Ltd is the parent company for Lakesmere Ltd as well as McMullen Facades Ltd and a number of overseas subsidiaries. McMullen and the overseas subsidiaries are not in administration and are continuing to trade solvently.
McMullen is based in Northern Ireland and will not be subject to the UK insolvency process, and no redundancies are being announced there. Altogether, 275 people are employed across these facilities.
The administrators from Deloitte are currently assisting the Lakesmere Group with options around the sale of McMullen as a going concern.
