The former headquarters of collapsed engineering giant Carillion has gone up for sale, with a price tag of over £3 million.

The building, in Wolverhampton, which was refurbished in 2015, has over 37,000 square feet of office space over six floors, as well as a car park.

The announcement was made as the Official Receiver said another 97 Carillion employees had been given redundancy notices, taking the total number of job losses to more than 1,800.

A total of 1,802 jobs have been lost since Carillion went into liquidation in January.

Almost 10,000 jobs have been saved, and 5,400 employees have been retained to deliver Carillion’s services to public and private sector customers until decisions are taken to transfer or end these contracts.

Midlands property agents Bulleys and JLL will market the former head office, which is currently occupied by Carillion and its liquidators PwC.

Noel Muscott of Bulleys said: “This is a fantastic opportunity to acquire an eye-catching office block in a prominent location that will soon benefit from proximity to the Westside leisure development.

“The offices were comprehensively refurbished in 2015 and provide open plan accommodation that would suit occupation as a whole, on a floor by floor or part-floor basis.

“The building is close to Wolverhampton’s principal city centre business, retail and leisure offer and will be an attractive place to be based.”

The building is being sold by an unnamed private investor.
