On the 15th of January 2018 the UK construction sector was shocked when a compulsory liquidation order was made against Carillion, the second largest construction company in the UK. Carillion was a major supplier to the UK’s public sector and had the remit to deliver 450 different contracts across a range of different departments and sectors, all funded by public money. Much work ensued to ensure those vital contracts could be delivered by other bodies. The collapse drew wide criticism from across the political divide, with Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn calling the incident ‘a watershed moment’.
