Birmingham's Cube contractors 'return to work'

The Cube
Work had stopped on The Cube, which is close to completion

Administrators overseeing Birmingham's canal-side Cube development have said sub-contractors will be paid for their work.

Pricewaterhouse Coopers said the sub-contractors would be paid for February, March and through to the completion of the project.

On Friday, BuildAbility, the company developing The Cube, announced it had gone into administration.

The administrators have urged workers to turn up as normal on Monday.

Pricewaterhouse Coopers had said it was holding talks with stakeholders and did not intend to market the development in its current state.

Announcing the administration, BuildAbility said it had not been able to reach an agreement with a bank to fund The Cube to completion.

The Cube had been marketed as having apartments, offices, a hotel, shops, cafe bars and a rooftop restaurant.
