Date 16 Nov 2017

Galliford Try, the housebuilding, regeneration and construction group, announces that its Building division has been awarded all six lots that it bid for on the Education and Skills Funding Agency's school building framework.

The appointment includes a mix of high-, medium- and low-value projects throughout England, worth up to £3.1 billion in total.

Galliford Try was an existing member of the current ESFA framework and has been awarded circa £350 million from the procurement vehicle between 2013 and 2017.

The framework will be utilised for the Priority School Building Programme and provides a procurement route for education providers to build free schools, academies and university technical colleges. The new framework begins in November 2017 and will run until 2021.

Peter Truscott, Chief Executive of Galliford Try, said: "We are delighted to have been appointed to every lot that we bid for on the new ESFA framework. Membership of major public sector frameworks is a key part of our strategy for our construction business and we look forward to working once again with our partners at the ESFA to provide high-quality educational facilities around the country."
