Auckland's Mitchell Homes in liquidation

Another building firm has hit the dust with the parent company of Auckland-based Mitchell Homes now in liquidation.

Mitchell Homes had projects on the go at Landco’s sprawling 110-ha Stonefields urban village in Mt Wellington and the 14.8-ha Karaka Lakes subdivision.

Owner Brent Mitchell could not be reached for comment but a former staff member confirmed the business is being wound up following the collapse of Pukekohe-based Tribro Construction.

Tribro’s owner Andrew Casey had taken a third share in Mitchell Developments in December but several Tribro companies went into liquidation earlier this month.

Mitchell Builders Trustee Company and Mitchell Developments were placed in liquidation last week. Creditors are understood to be owed around $1 million.

The market will tkae more building companies sadly before this property/economy bust is over. What impact does this have (if any) on Mitchell's Jennian and Milestone Homes franchises?
