Contractor and housebuilder Galliford Try has won two new contracts worth a total of £41m.

The firm announced that it has been appointed by Grainger to build a £23m mixed-use project at Macaulay Road in south London.

The 11-building project comprises a four-storey office development combined with 97 homes, of which 32 will be affordable.

Galliford Try has also been named preferred bidder by the NEC Group for the £18m refurbishment of the National Indoor Arena in Birmingham.

The design includes the creation of extra retail units, a new showcase entrance, and the creation of an extra 5,926 sq m of pre- and post-show space to combine with the 7,500 sq m of space that requires refurbishment.

Galliford Try chief executive Greg Fitzgerald (pictured) said: “We are delighted to have won two such significant contracts in an extremely competitive market. These contract awards show that we can compete in all regions and provide our clients with high quality cost effective solutions for their needs.”
