Specialist insolvency lawyers at Walker Morris have advised administrators Deloitte on the sale of the business and assets of HW Architectural – an aluminium windows, doors, and curtain walling business.

The West Yorkshire architectural firm, which traces its roots to the 1880s, went into administration last month, with the loss of 74 jobs.

The new owners currently have an aluminium business called QIC Trims which services the interiors market with dry lining trims, glass partitions and access panels.

A core team of previous company employees will be engaged to re-launch HWA.

Simon Clark (Partner) and Claire Askew (Director), both specialist insolvency lawyers at Walker Morris, advised Adrian Berry and Clare Boardman at Deloitte.

Adrian Berry, joint administrator and partner at Deloitte, said:

“HW Architectural had an excellent reputation but were faced with challenging economic conditions and we wish Lee and his team every success re-establishing the HWA business.”

Lee Whittaker, general manager of HWA told Construction Enquirer:

“We’ve been looking for a number of years for a business in this sector and we are excited to have secured such a recognisable brand, we intend to hit the ground running “and look forward to hearing from, and meeting our customers.”
