Bristol Build Firm Goes Bust

A Bristol construction services firm has fallen into administration

A prominent Bristol construction services firm has fallen into administration with the loss of 30 jobs. Dribuild Ltd entered into administration on October 4 after facing 'insurmountable' funding challenges.

Neil Vinnicombe and Simon Haskew of business recovery firm Begbies Traynor have been appointed to manage the administration.

Dribuild is currently engaged in nine live commercial construction projects.

Five of the company’s 35 strong team are being retained by Begbies Traynor while the administration proceeds.

Commenting on the news, Neil Vinnicombe, partner at Begbies Traynor in Bath, said: “It is always sad to see a business with a strong reputation and order book succumb to financial difficulties, especially when there are redundancies involved.

"We are hopeful of working with existing customers to assist them to complete contracts in progress and help as much of the business’ skilled workforce as possible to find alternative employment.”
