Firm boosted by contract wins on health centres in Coventry, Liverpool and Sefton

Contractor and housebuilder Galliford Try has secured £62m worth of work in the health sector over the next five years.

The group has won a £22m contract to build a health centre in Coventry as part of its LIFT framework partnering agreement with Coventry Care Partnership and has secured another £40m worth of work through its renewed framework partnering agreement with Liverpool and Sefton Health Partnership (LSHP).

In Coventry, Galliford Try will demolish the existing health centre on the site and design and build the five-storey City Centre Health Facility. The centre will include GP Practices, the city's walk-in health centre and a pharmacy. Construction start on site in April and completion is expected in November 2011.

Galliford Try has been working with LSHP for the past five years and has been reselected as a framework partner under which it will undertake the construction of eight purpose-built neighbourhood health centres across Liverpool and Sefton over the next five years, anticipated to be worth £40m.
