BORDER Steelwork Structures Limited's Carlisle office space is available to let on the back of the firm appointing administrators earlier this month. 

The detached two-storey modern office building, on Kingstown Road, was responsible for the steelwork and cladding company’s design, detailing and administrative functions.

Since Michelle Elliot and Simon Carvill-Biggs, partners with FRP Advisory, were appointed joint administrators, 43 staff have been made redundant with immediate effect.

The office space is being listed by Walton Goodland for an undisclosed fee, offering approximately 6,631 sq ft.

It offers high-spec internal fittings and has a private parking space with room for 14 vehicles, with the listing promoting a conveniently located space for those looking to seize a great opportunity. 

The property is available to let on a new Full Repairing & Insuring (FRI) lease for a term of years to be agreed upon, subject to a periodic rent review.

The firm only recently moved into the Kingstown office space from its original townhouse building on Warwick Road last year. 

The business which was incorporated in 1978 has been invested in many of the city's large-scale building projects such as the Carlisle Lake District Airport, the Mercedes garage, Thomas Grahams, Trinity School, Nestle UK, Hespin Wood waste site, and the new Sands Centre. 

Carlisle's MP John Stevenson said he was 'disappointed' to hear the administration news alongside the loss of jobs for the area.

"I am however confident that the job market in Carlisle is quite buoyant and I hope all those now seeking work are successful in finding a suitable alternative as soon as practically possible," he said. 

Joint administrator, Michelle Elliot said the appointment of administrators comes on the back of a 'downturn in contracts and income' for the long-established firm.
