One is for Northamptonshire County Council, and the other is for Subsea 7 in Surrey.

Galliford Try has been selected as preferred bidder by Northamptonshire County Council to build its new £47m headquarters in Northampton. Galliford Try’s contract is valued at £38m.

The new 17,600m2 four-storey building, designed by BDP, is intended to consolidate the council's existing offices in the town, save £51m in running costs and regenerate an area on the south side of Northampton town centre. (See previous report here.)

Codenamed ‘Project Angel’, the new building will go up on a site off Angel Street in Northampton that is currently used as a council staff car park. Construction starts in January, with completion scheduled for November 2016.

Offshore engineering company Subsea 7 has chosen Galliford Try to build its new office building in Sutton, Surrey. This £39m project creates a new 150,000 sqft Category A office space and associated facilities on the site of the former Brighton Road car park.

Galliford Try executive chairman Greg Fitzgerald said: "We are delighted that Northamptonshire County Council and Subsea 7 have entrusted us with such significant projects. We have a strong reputation in the office sector and we look forward to providing these two clients with the first class facilities they require."
