Liverpool contractor placed in liquidation

Liverpool-based contractor Crossfield Construction has been placed in liquidation.

The construction arm of Crossfield Group appointed Adam Herman of insolvency specialist Begbies Traynor to oversee the process.

Crossfield Group is made up of two divisions: Crossfield Construction and a housebuilding arm called Crossfield Living. Only the construction business is being liquidated, while the other entity remains intact.

The construction arm was too small to publish full accounts, but, as per the latest accounts filed for the parent group, the wider firm turned over £35m in 2019 and employed 38 people in 2020.

Crossfield Construction worked on new-build and refurbishment work, primarily in the North West of England, in sectors covering education, health, commercial, industrial and retail.

According to local paper Liverpool Echo, the construction arm saw a £2.2m deal with Sefton Council fall through in November last year. The council blamed delays and a lack of progress on the part of the contractor for cancelling the deal to redevelop an adventure centre in Crosby.

Salford City Council also replaced Crossfield with Seddon on a £36m housing build in Hulton.

The liquidators for Crossfield Construction have been approached for comment.
