Keltbray 'broadens services' with Dunne Group buy

Keltbray acquired some of Dunne’s assets from the administrators FRM Advisory after the latter went into administration in July.

This purchase includes Dunne’s former yard and head office at Bathgate in Scotland, as well as plant used for the construction of reinforced concrete structures.

In a statement to Construction News, the company said: “Keltbray sees this as an opportunity to broaden its capability and services portfolio, widen its geographical reach and to respond to market demands.”

Dunne Group fell into administration on 19 July, after workers at Dunne and its five subsidiaries were understood to have been pulled from multiple sites including 100 Bishopsgate, with Brookfield Multiplex.

Brookfield Multiplex replaced Dunne with Byrne Group on 100 Bishopsgate and its One Blackfriars job three days after the contractor went into administration.

The concrete specialist was also working on Mace’s Newington Butt’s scheme in south London and was replaced by concrete contractor Getjar earlier this month.
