The company ran into financial difficulties earlier this year

Simon Campbell and Carl Jackson of business advisory firm Quantuma have been appointed as joint administrators of QED Developments.

Founded in 2013, QED Developments is a building contractor with headquarters in Wolverhampton, focussed on the development and letting of the former Sunbeam Factory on Paul St. The project envisaged 115 mixed use residential units and is c.70 per cent complete.

The company ran into financial difficulties earlier this year due to cost over-runs and funding challenges. The business has an annual turnover in excess of £350k from the completed units.

As QED Developments does not employ any staff, there will be no redundancies made as a result of the administration.

Business advisory firm Quantuma was appointed administrators to the business on 12 November. The process is being led by Quantuma Managing Partner Carl Jackson and Director Simon Campbell.

Simon Campbell, Joint Administrator at Quantuma, said: “The business has experienced cash flow difficulties as a result of the complex building project.  As a result, we have been appointed administrators to the business, and will conduct a thorough review of the circumstances and options for building out the property, ensuring we achieve the best possible outcome for creditors.  This is an ambitious and attractive project in a land-mark location which has every chance of success once it has been stabilised.”
