Leeds based contractor formed just three years ago

Leeds based contractor GWD has entered administration, just three years after being formed.

The £13m-turnover M&E specialist was formed after the merger of Gill & Wilkinson and Dunham Engineering Services in 2008.

Ernst & Young’s Manchester office has been appointed administrator and will be handling the affairs of the group’s three trading companies, GWD Projects, GWD Building Services and GWD Engineering Services.

The firm specialised in retail, education and commercial work and carried out projects up to £3.5m in value.
