Grollo puts Barangaroo Grocon construction business into administration

The Barangaroo Grocon construction business has gone into administration.

Established 73 years ago the Grocon chief Daniel Grollo said he was making the move reluctantly after issues arose at its Barangaroo site in which there is litigation against the NSW Government.

There is a $270 million legal stows with the government after planning issues saw it amend its high-rise aspirations at Barangaroo, "forcing" it to sell its share in the project at a discount to Aqualand.

The matter related to Crown/Lendlease sightlines at the development site.

“It is unfortunate that INSW is forcing our hand to place the construction business into administration," Grollo told The Australian.

High profile projects, including the Northumberland development in Collingwood, Melbourne would not be included in the administration entities.

But The Age reported the gages on the construction site of its Northumberland 12-level inner-city office block  remain locked in an ominous sign for the developer.

But lender MaxCap was reportedly committed to the Northumberland project.
