Galliford Try has been reappointed by Stoke-on-Trent City Council to its minor works framework. Worth a total of £16 million over the four-year term, the work will include over 30 schemes covering, for instance, highways and public realm improvements, drainage, routine bridge and culvert maintenance, and soft and hard landscaping.
Galliford Try began working for the council in 2011. The framework was previously renewed in 2015. Recently completed schemes include carriageway and junction improvements to Leek New Road, public realm works in the University Quarter, erecting structural steelwork for the Federation Road recycling centre, car park construction and structural repair work to Smithpool culvert in consultation with the Environment Agency.
The company has played a key role in the community. As part of its commitment to making a local impact on the economy 90% of staff working on schemes live locally.
Duncan Elliott, Managing Director of Galliford Try Highways, said: “This is a tremendous way for our Local Authorities business to start the year. We have a long and successful relationship with Stoke-on-Trent City Council and are delighted for the opportunity to continue working with them.” He added: “The framework is very varied, featuring many relatively small jobs that draw on the full breadth of our skills and experience.”
