Bournville Gardens will be the fifth scheme that Galliford Try has delivered for Extra Care, including the Hagley Road village that is currently under construction in Birmingham and expected to be fully open in the autumn.

Galliford Try Partnerships has also reached financial close on the 765 Finchley Road project in North London on behalf of housing association Affinity Sutton. The £15.8m contract involves the construction of 80 mixed tenure homes and commercial units.

We are delighted to be furthering our relationships with both Extra Care and Affinity Sutton and look forward to working with them to create the communities their customers deserve."
