Galliford Try has picked up a £60m contract from the Defence Infrastructure Organisation (DIO), for construction works at Catterick Garrison in North Yorkshire.

The refurbishment scheme of Marne and Bourlon Barracks, including the listed Sandhurst block at the Garrison is taking place under the Army Basing Programme, which is charged with providing facilities to the British Army as its German-based forces return to the UK.

The redevelopment programme will include the new Officers’ and Junior Ranks’ single living accommodation, a Senior Non Commissioned Officers’ mess, armoury, squadron offices, Quartermaster department and a multi-use games area.

The contract was awarded through the DIO’s Next Generation Estates framework, which also awarded a joint venture between Galliford Try and Lagan Construction the £135m redevelopment of RAF Marham.

Keith Yarham, defence director for Galliford Try, said: “The defence sector has been identified as a key area of growth for our business and this prestigious contract to rebuild these historic barracks at Catterick is another huge step forward in meeting our strategic goals.”
