Bulding company MR8 Construction in liquidation

Another Auckland construction business has gone into liquidation, sparking a dispute over work in Ponsonby, but an ex-director of the builder says no money is owed.

Companies Office records show BHSSR, previously called MR8 Construction, went into voluntary liquidation today, in the hands of Waterstone Insolvency.

"Established with 25 years of industry experience, MR8 Construction is a true representation of an innovative and energetic company – clearly reflected in the success of its growth," its web site says.

"MR8 Construction specialises in the construction of multi-unit developments, high-density residential, light commercial, fitouts and industrial construction."

One creditor said $50,000 was outstanding for work undertaken last year and he knew of at least two other creditors who had provided goods and services on a project on Ponsonby's Fitzroy St.

Mark Ensom, MR8 Construction's contact on its firm's web site, said he was a former director of the company which did not owe any money.

The creditor in fact owed MR8 Construction about $30,000 Ensom said, because its work had been defective and took builders many weeks to rectify.

"They totally mucked up. There's been litigation," Ensom said.

The creditor said work was carried out last October but payment had not been received.

"We served a statutory demand on them and were ready to go to court this morning to enforce that only to find it had changed its name and the company had been placed in liquidation. I know of at least tow other creditors who are going to get burnt too," the man said.
