Carillion’s former Wolverhampton headquarters has gone up for sale with a price tag based on offers in excess of £3 million. JLL and Bulleys have been jointly appointed to market the property at 84 Salop Street, which is currently known as Carillion House.
The detached building is located on a 0.65 acre site next to the Chapel Ash Island in Wolverhampton city centre, next door to the £55 million Westside leisure development.
News of the sale comes after the Government revealed this week that more than 10,000 of Carillion’s staff have found new jobs, following the transfer of 179 people to new employers.
A spokesperson for the Official Receiver said: “Regrettably, 23 employees whose positions are no longer required as Carillion’s business transfers to new suppliers will leave the business later this week.
“I am continuing to talk with potential purchasers for Carillion’s remaining contracts and will keep staff, elected employee representatives and unions to keep them informed as these arrangements are confirmed.”
The former Carillion building is offered for freehold sale and is due to be available with vacant possession, although Carillion and its liquidators PwC are currently in occupation, continuing to pay rent of £437,405 pa for both the main and additional site.
