Job losses at build­ing firm South­dale

Halifax Courier - - Your Courier -

A Hal­i­fax build­ing firm spe­cial­is­ing in af­ford­able homes has gone into ad­min­is­tra­tion with the loss of 87 jobs.

South­dale Limited op­er­ated from a hub in Hal­i­fax and other parts of York­shire, the North West and North East work­ing on homes and “tech­ni­cally de­mand­ing public build­ings”.

The com­pany op­er­ated through­out the North of UK, with re­gional hubs in­clud­ing Dar­ling­ton and Warrington,

Now 128 work­ers are be­ing trans­ferred to build­ing firm Kier Living who will take over some South­dale con­tracts.

Peter Holder, Lee Causer and Anne O’Keefe of AlixPart­ners Ser­vices UK were ap­pointed as joint ad­min­is­tra­tors at South­dale Homes on April 29.

At the start of April South­dale an­nounced it would sup­port its York­shire sup­ply chain and cre­ate jobs and ap­pren­tice­ships, af­ter win­ning £10.5 mil­lion of new con­tracts.

The com­pany had se­cured the work, in South and West York­shire, with more than 100 homes be­ing built in Brad­ford and Sh­effield.

Doubts now sur­round many ma­jor hous­ing de­vel­op­ments with work be­ing stopped.
