Galliford Try’s Scottish business Morrison Construction has reached financial close with Hub South West Scotland Limited on a £26.4m project to design and construct a new Clyde Valley schools campus in Wishaw, North Lanarkshire.

The project will be delivered over three phases and is expected to complete in August 2016 to cater for just over 1,000 pupils aged three to 18.

Secondly, Galliford Try has been appointed to the £27m next phase of Waterhouse and Resolution’s Brewery Square regeneration scheme in Dorchester.

The contract entails construction of 15 retail units and 134 apartments and penthouses at the 11.5 acre site.

Thirdly, the firm has been appointed to a £16m contract by Brookgate Developments to construct a 230-bed Ibis hotel in Cambridge on a Network Rail-owned site adjacent to the train station.

In addition to the hotel accommodation, the new six-storey building includes retail units and a 3,000 space cycle park and is due to be completed early in 2016.

Finally, the division has been appointed by Vesta PC to construct a £13.5m commercial office building on London’s Pall Mall.

Galliford Try chief executive Greg Fitzgerald said: “We are delighted to have secured these major contracts that demonstrate the strength of our building business throughout the United Kingdom and across a significant variety of sectors.

“We look forward to delivering on these projects and continuing on our strategy to grow our construction business as the economy improves.”
