Galliford Try, Davis Langdon and Fulcrum will build £300m of community facilities in southern Scotland over next 10 years

A consortium including housebuilder Galliford Try and consultants Davis Langdon and Fulcrum has been confirmed as the lead partner to build £300m of community facilities across southern Scotland in the next 10 years.

The Space consortium was selected by a group of public sector agencies earlier this year, but has now “reached agreement formalising its position,” according to Galliford Try.

The first project for the south east hub territory partnering board in Scotland, to get underway later this year, is the design and build of a new library and community joint facility in west Edinburgh with an initial capital investment of £5.7 million.

Greg Fitzgerald, Chief Executive of Galliford Try, said: “We are delighted to have reached an agreement on this significant partnership. This deal demonstrates how the combined skill of Galliford Try’s construction and infrastructure division, supported by Investments, enables us to deliver major public sector partnering schemes.”
