The 75-strong QS ceased trading last week

Quantity surveyor and claims and dispute resolution consultant GF Partnership has collapsed.

A statement on the company’s website said: “We regret to inform you that the GF Partnership Limited has ceased trading. Meetings of creditors and shareholders have been convened for 28 July, 2011, pursuant to S.98 of the Insolvency Act 1986. At these meetings it is anticipated that shareholders and creditors will resolve to place the company into creditors’ voluntary liquidation.”

The statement added that all inquiries should be directed to the proposed liquidators, BRI Business Recovery and Insolvency.

BRI senior insolvency administrator Suki Bains told Building that the firm ceased trading last week.

She was unable to comment further but said the directors’ report would provide creditors with details of what led to the firm’s collapse in due course.

GF Partnership employs 75 surveyors and has worked with a number of contractors including Durkan, Skanska McNicholas, Morrison Construction, Amey and Morgan Sindall.

Prior to the credit crunch it was ranked 45 in Building’s list of the top 100 surveyors and 125 in the top 250 consultants.
