Administrators KPMG have made 150 staff redundant from Clugston’s total workforce of 412.
Trade body the Civil Engineering Contractors Association is seeking to support those affected by the shock collapse.
CECA Yorkshire & the Humber director Mark Roper said: “It is a sad day for the region to see the failure of this well-known firm.
“In the run-up to Christmas, we want to do everything that we can to help those affected find new employment, hopefully with companies in their area.”
With around 75 members across Yorkshire and the Humber region where Clugston is based, CECA is offering support to try to place these workers with new employers.
CECA said it would also use its wider regional networks to seek employment for those working for Clugston across the rest of the country.
Affected workers or employer looking to recruit can email CECA.
