The purchase will see former director Tim Bingham join the Curtins Group, which has 11 offices nationwide and also has headquarters in Liverpool.
Bingham has advised on the design and construction of numerous projects in Liverpool including the Royal Sun Alliance headquarters, City Square and the conversion of the former Liverpool Airport terminal into the Marriott Hotel, Speke.
Rob Melling, chief executive of Curtins, said the move would ensure continuity of service for a number of key clients.
“Tim Bingham has an outstanding reputation in the private developer market and will strengthen that part of our business.
“It’s good that a Liverpool business has been able to provide the solution to this issue,” said Melling.
“We’ve held our own during the recession and this acquisition is part of our strategy of reducing exposure to public sector markets. We’ve got a healthy mix of projects going forward in what remains a tough market,” he added.
Gary Lee, partner at Begbies Traynor and Liquidator of Bingham Davis said: “In what is a very challenging market this is a positive outcome for the clients of Bingham Davis and the company’s creditors.
“When liquidation is the only alternative, a deal that preserves expertise and intellectual property must be considered a success.”
