In its largest ever single project, Galliford Try's Partnerships business has been selected by Notting Hill Housing to build the £81m Great Eastern Quays project in east London.

This project sees the regeneration of the former Ivax site opposite Gallion’s Point Marina. Galliford Try will build up to 350 mixed tenure homes and develop public spaces alongside the river and the docks, including business, retail and leisure areas.

Galliford Try Partnerships has also been selected for a £25m contract with Coast & Country Housing, which took over the ownership and management of homes from Redcar & Cleveland Borough Council as part of a large-scale voluntary stock transfer in 2002. Galliford Try’s contract is for six new extra care developments in Redcar.  The project will see the creation of 225 units and ancillary facilities across the surrounding region over the next three years.

In addition, Galliford Try has secured £20m of funding from the HCA under the Affordable Homes Programme 2015-18.  The award, which is the largest made to a commercial house-builder, will go towards the creation of 858 affordable homes across the country.

Galliford Try chief executive Greg Fitzgerald said: "Affordable housing has become a real success story for our company across the country.  The selection of Partnerships for its biggest ever single contract by Notting Hill Housing is testament to the strength of the brand and the hard work of the team.  Likewise, our track record in extra care continues to resonate with clients and we look forward to working with our partners to produce high quality housing for their customers."
