Galliford Try wins £40m of water and rail work
Galliford Try has picked up another £40m worth of infrastructure projects.
The company’s Scottish construction arm, Morrison Construction, in joint venture with Black & Veatch, has been given a £17m contract by Scottish Water for the second phase of the Meadowhead and Stevenston work package 6. The purpose of the scheme is to collect storm overflows from Kilmarnock town centre and transfer them to Meadowhead waste water treatment works.
In Sheffield, a joint venture of Galliford Try and Aecom Design Build has been awarded a £15m contract by Yorkshire Water to upgrade the Woodhouse Mill sewage treatment works. This project is designed to improve the quality of final effluent in line with discharge consents set by the Environment Agency.
Finally, Reading Borough Council has selected Galliford Try for an £8m contract to help redevelop the area around the town's railway station. Civil engineering works includes highway improvements, creation of a new interchange and public realm works.
Galliford Try chief executive Greg Fitzgerald said: "We are delighted to secure further projects for two of our long standing framework clients in the water industry and to play a key role in a significant rail infrastructure contract for a new client. Our construction business has a strong track record in all three areas and we look forward to working with our clients to deliver successful projects."
