As somebody who sub'ed to them on numerous PFI schools they were the worst main contractor we had the pleasure of working for.

Glad we got out when we did , from my dealings the whole ethos was bash the suby, its was always the subys fault and was never mis-management at Carillion.

karma.....

A bit of good news - I received a payment from CarillionAmey today, so hopefully that means Amey are taking up the slack.

let's hope they all get their just deserts

http://www.theconstructionindex.co.u...igations-widen

"..two House of Commons committees also said that they wanted to know “how a company that was signed off by KPMG as a going concern in spring 2017 could crash into liquidation with a reported £5bn of liabilities and just £29m left in cash less than a year later”..."

" "In the wake of the BHS scandal, Carillion has the hallmarks of another corporate governance failure with directors asleep at the wheel while the business went off a cliff, in this case leaving jobs, pensions and public services under threat and a host of suppliers out of pocket. How is it that so many warning signs were ignored by the company and the government? "


And I'll guarantee they aren't alone

Yes, you get into a sticky situation and they hound you for years after, they just put a different colour tie on and move to the next.

the more you read, the more it becomes obvious that they were blatantly defrauding everyone, to line their and shareholder's pockets.

http://www.theconstructionindex.co.u...l-of-carillion

no accountants can declare these sorts of levels of ****-ups, honest mistakes .... and expect to get away with it

Accountants are paid NOT to make 'errors' in the accounts of 'something's' performance .... THERE ARE NO EXCUSES .... end of.

this was systematic and systemic fraud from the top down

As for the pensions ..................
