CPUK Administration - project update
Updated: Apr 27, 2020
It is with great sadness to confirm that we have been informed of one of our contractors going into administration. CPUK who have been trading for 20 years this year, made the announcement on Friday 24th April 2020, following a court order.
This currently affects one of sites, Brown Street, Hale. The following statement has been released by the team:
"As you will now be very aware, we are currently experiencing unprecedented times with uncertainty being the mainstay of the foreseeable future whilst the world gets to grips with the pandemic. Our first priority is the health, safety and wellbeing of all persons, which is reflected in the immediate decision to close the site upon announcement of the Government’s lockdown on 24th March 2020. Since the Covid19 outbreak we have been considering and preparing for a myriad of eventualities to ensure that, once the health & safety of the workers and general public in close proximity to the site can be secured, we can continue to deliver this excellent, much needed, development to Hale. We continue to seek advice from the appropriate sources, together with reviewing how to safely apply the Construction Leadership Council’s Site Operating Procedures to this development ensuring the necessary controls are in place to protect all persons associated with the development. We unfortunately have to announce that the main contractor for the development, CPUK, has entered administration. It is our intention to continue with the development, maintaining as many existing subcontractors and suppliers as possible, at the earliest, safe opportunity in order to minimise the ongoing disruption to the neighbours to the site. We will liaise with all the necessary parties and assist wherever possible to ensure that, once safe, we can continue to deliver this excellent project. Further updates will be provided as the situation develops.
