BGIS takes on Car­il­lion con­tracts

Western Mail - - BUSINESS -

CANA­DIAN firm BGIS is to take over hos­pi­tal, ed­u­ca­tion, jus­tice, trans­port and emer­gency ser­vices con­tracts from col­lapsed con­struc­tion gi­ant Car­il­lion.

Brook­field Global In­te­grated So­lu­tions, which de­scribes it­self as a global real es­tate and fa­cil­ity man­age­ment ser­vices provider, said that as part of the deal, it will take on more than 2,500 Car­il­lion em­ploy­ees.

Car­il­lion’s liq­ui­da­tion last month left in its wake a £900m debt pile, a £590m pen­sion deficit and hun­dreds of mil­lions of pounds in un­fin­ished public con­tracts.

It is un­clear how much the BGIS deal is worth, but it is thought that staff work­ing on the trans­ferred con­tracts will keep the same terms and con­di­tions of em­ploy­ment.

The deal is ex­pected to close in the first quar­ter of 2018.
