Global MEP Limited director Danny Longland is furious at his treatment in his high-profile job.

Global started working on a £1.8m sub-contract for Kershaw in March 2021 but left the job last December following a dispute over payments.

The case went to trial, with the arbitrator finding in favor of Global and ordering Kershaw to pay them over £500,000.

But Kershaw entered administration just days after the decision owing more than £10million to its supply chain.

While the tendering process was underway, Global had a 30ft storage container at University College London’s Vinci site in Poole Street.

Global was not allowed to go to the site to collect its materials.

But Longland was stunned to discover the container had been broken into with Kershaw workers then using the materials on site.

The Applicant saw a series of photographs and videos showing equipment being carried away by workers wearing Kershaw-branded high-visibility vests.

Longland said, “Just when you think you’ve seen it, it all happens.

“Not only did they rip us off for the money owed to us, they used all of our materials while Vinci just turned a blind eye.”

Vinci Building said: “Vinci Building has become aware of an ongoing dispute between Global MEP Limited (Global) over work it has carried out as a sub-contractor for Kershaw Mechanical Services Limited (KMS) on the University project College London, Poole Street before KMS entered administration in April this year.

“In relation to specific comments about Vinci Building and site access, we can confirm that all access on and off our sites is controlled and managed to ensure everyone’s safety at all times. The storage container in question was removed from the site in April

“For clarity, any ongoing issues between Global MEP, KMS and their administrators should be resolved between them directly.”
