Firm goes under blaming States-approved builders
Saturday 2nd March 2013, 10:00AM GMT.
A SPECIALIST building company has gone bust claiming it was taken under because of money owed to it by the firm the States has just approved for the new mental health centre.
Building and Technical Services (CI) Ltd yesterday announced it would be voluntarily winding up, at the cost of three jobs locally. It claims it was as a result of money owed by Harbour View Construction, which States members have just approved as the main contractor for the £24m. facility to replace the Castel Hospital.
The Jersey side of the business, ACJ Air Conditioning (Jersey) Ltd, has also gone into administration, making a further 37 employees redundant.
The building firm’s director, David Mabbs, said that his company owed 21 firms in Guernsey nearly £50,000, but blamed Harbour View, for which his firm sub-contracted on work at the former St Peter Port School site.
