Deloitte has confirmed it has been appointed as administrator to concrete specialist John Doyle Construction

A Deloitte spokeswoman said the firm had been appointed administrator to the entire Doyle Group, which includes concrete specialist John Doyle Construction.

The group also includes fit-out firm Ibex Interiors and Blythewood Plant.

Deloitte said more details would be forthcoming.

Last September Doyle Group chairman Stef Stefanou said the group had started to build momentum after experiencing difficulties through the recession. “We have witnessed a lot more activity in all our sectors of operation and the momentum of that has gathered some real pace since March,” he said.

“To us this feels like the beginning of the end of the recession with further evidence of this being how busy the architectural practices we deal with currently are.”
