End of the road for Merseyside envelope specialist

A Merseyside-based facade specialist that worked on the Oxford Science Park has entered liquidation.

Complete Facade Systems (CFS), based in Haydock, St Helens, appointed liquidators after becoming unable to pay its debts.

Notice was given yesterday (24 April) that the company had been voluntarily wound up and Lisa Ion and Mark Colman of insolvency practitioners Leonard Curtis were named as joint liquidators.

The firm specialised in the design, manufacture and installation of facades. It had worked with main contractor John Sisk & Son on the final stage of a scheme at the Oxford Science Park (pictured during construction), which was completed in the third quarter of last year.

Ongoing projects included a contract from Lovell Partnerships to deliver 4,300 square metres of rainscreen cladding and aluminium feature pods on the Darley House Estate in Oldbury, West Midlands.

Among its previous projects were Bradford House in Epsom, Gascoigne School in Barking, Essex, and Mulberry University Technical College in Tower Hamlets, London.

Operating in the education, healthcare, commercial, retail, leisure and residential sectors for the past six years, CFS offered glazing systems, backing wall solutions, rainscreen systems and bespoke cladding systems.

Its most recent financial accounts, for the year ending 31 October 2022, showed net assets of £56,359 compared with £18,472 the year before.

The firm owed creditors £30,000 payable after more than 12 months, £10,000 less than in 2020/21.

A spokesperson for Leonard Curtis told Construction News it was unable to comment on the liquidation.
