Moorfields Appointed Administrators Over Leading Building Surveying and Consulting Survey
Simon Thomas and Robert Pick of Moorfields Corporate Recovery LLP have been appointed Joint Administrators over two Leeds based businesses Met Surveys Limited and Met Consulting Engineers Limited.
Met Surveys Limited and Met Consulting Engineers Limited provided land/building surveys and engineering consultancy including design, environmental reports and geotechnical investigations to clients in both the public and private sectors.
In 2009 the businesses faced a downturn in trade as a result of the construction industry being hit hard by the economic climate. In a pre pack deal, the Administrators, advised by Cobbetts LLP, sold the assets of both companies to Southgate House Limited, allowing continued trade for customers and securing the employment of the staff of Met Surveys Ltd and Met Consulting Engineers Ltd.
The new companies and staff will operate alongside Met Geo Environmental Ltd from existing premises at Southgate House under the direction of Neil Harvey, Chris Jones, Ian Lang and Andy King.
Dianne Turner, Director, Moorfields Corporate Recovery LLP “The construction industry has been hit particularly hard by the recession. We are very pleased to have completed a sale of both companies’ business and assets thereby safeguarding employment in the area, at this time of increasing unemployment”.
Moorfields Corporate Recovery LLP is one of the UK's leading independent firms of restructuring and insolvency specialists.
