Galliford Try Selected for £60m of Affordable Housing Contracts
Galliford Try plc, the housebuilding and construction group, announces that its Partnerships business has been named as preferred bidder for several projects in the affordable housing sector which together total in excess of £60 million.
Housing association Affinity Sutton has named Partnerships as preferred bidder for the Hampstead Reach project in north London, which will see the creation of 80 mixed tenure homes and commercial units under a £15.6 million contract.
Partnerships has also been selected as preferred bidder by both developer Kitewood Estates and registered provider Gallions Housing to build 137 homes and commercial units in a £15.5 million deal at Blackwall Lane in east London.
Partnerships will provide a further 54 affordable homes for Gallions Housing as a result of being selected as preferred bidder by developer MacDonald Egan for the £8.1 million Neptune Wharf project, also in east London.
In the Midlands, Partnerships has added a preferred bidder appointment to deliver a further Extra Care scheme in Cannock for Staffordshire County Council. The £12 million project will feature 64 Extra Care apartments, a Learning Disability Respite unit and community hub. A further 14 homes for social housing will be created for The Wrekin Housing Trust.
Finally, North East Derbyshire District Council and housing management organisation Rykneld Homes have appointed Partnerships as preferred bidder for a £10 million contract to rebuild the Tarran bungalows in Eckington and Killamarsh. A total of 129 new two-bed homes will be built to replace the pre-fabricated bungalows that were part of the post-war emergency building programme.
Galliford Try Chief Executive Greg Fitzgerald commented: “Our Partnerships business continues to be a leading contractor of choice for registered providers and these new projects are testament to the success of our business model. We look forward to working with our partners to further improve levels of affordable housing across the country.”
