Real SW staff were told yesterday in an internal email seen by the Enquirer.
The move follows a similar application by the London and South East division Real LSE last week.
Real specialises in the construction of new homes, student accommodation and later living schemes for housing associations, local authorities and selected private clients.
The Real Contracting Group was created in 2021 by former Wates Residential managing director Paul Nicholls.
The group was formed following the acquisition of Rydon Construction’s south east and south west businesses which consisted of eight ongoing projects.
At the time of the group’s formation Nicholls set a turnover target of £300m for the new group.
The staff email from Nicholls confirmed: “I am very sorry to let you know that the Real SW directors and I have taken the decision to put our Real SW into Notice of Intention to appoint administrators.”
Real SW was working on a £41m residential contract at Siddington Park near Cirencester which has already been novated to Rydon.
Latest accounts for Real SW show the firm had a turnover of £28m for the year to February 28 2022 generating a pre-tax loss of £1.3m.
