Contractor named on development of 900-student school and 120 homes at Big Build in Oakham
Contractor and developer Galliford Try has won a £43m education project in Rutland.
The firm was named preferred bidder on the Big Build project at Oakham for Rutland county council.
The scheme includes construction of a £23m school for 900 students, plus community facilities, and the acquisition and development of a 120-home residential site.
Construction of the school is due to start this spring. The housing site, which has an estimated development value of £20m, is expected to be handed over to Galliford Try in 2011.
Group chief executive Greg Fitzgerald said: “This project is an excellent example of how Galliford Try can generate best value for its clients by using both its contracting and housebuilding skills to deliver a single-source solution. We are delighted to be working with Rutland county council to bring their objectives to fruition.”
