Four Morgan Sindall offices to close with 60 jobs lost

Morgan Sindall has confirmed it will close four offices as part of an ongoing restructure, in a move that is likely to see around 60 job cuts.

The contractor will close its Ashford, Banbury, Bristol and Theale (Reading) offices, after it confirmed the closure of its Durham office last month as part of a restructure.

Morgan Sindall’s housing arm Lovell announced it will merge five divisions into two, with three senior staff set to leave the firm as a result, earlier this month.

Among its recent contract wins in the past month has been being named as preferred partner for Slough Borough Council’s £1 billion, 15-year regeneration while it was also named as preferred partner for a £1.1bn Sellafield contract, in a joint venture with Arup.

A spokesman for Morgan Sindall said: “Despite challenging trading conditions, we continue to secure new contracts across the breadth of our business and we are actively growing our revenue in areas including energy, rail, roads, aviation and London.

“We do, however, in the normal course of prudent business management, regularly review the scale of our operations to reflect market conditions.

“In order to increase the operational efficiency of our construction business, we have recently announced the closure of our Ashford, Banbury, Bristol and Theale (Reading) offices.

“As a result of these changes, circa 60 people may have to leave the business but only after an extensive consultation exercise where we hope to minimise redundancies.

“We remain fully committed to serving our existing customers and securing new customers across England, Wales and Scotland.”
