Southampton M&E firm goes under

Southampton contractor Star Mechanical and Engineering Ltd has entered administration with the loss of 21 jobs.

Begbies Traynor has been appointed as administrator to the contractor, based in Chandlers Ford, Southampton – which had been operating since 1999.

Glenigan lists the M&E contractor as working on £35 million schemes in Wandsworth for St James Group and a £20m scheme being carried out by Lovell at Eastleigh for First Wessex Housing.

Julie Palmer and Simon Campbell, of Salisbury-based Begbies Traynor, were appointed administrators to the company on Monday.

Mrs Palmer said: “Some final completion works were carried out on a small number of contracts in the run-up to the administration order, but the employees have now been made redundant.

“The construction sector is particularly tough at the moment for sub-contractors and trading has been difficult for some time.”

The company had 21 employees and worked on a number of prestigious property developments in London for a variety of clients.
