Galliford Try wins places on northern public sector frameworks

Date 21 Apr 2022

Galliford Try has been appointed to two new public sector frameworks for its Building and Highways businesses, furthering the progress of its Sustainable Growth Strategy.

The Highways team has been named as part of the new socially-responsible RISE framework. The £6bn vehicle covers the North West region, with Galliford Try named to two lots under the construction and civil engineering categories.

The RISE framework defines itself as a pro-social organisation, investing in local communities through its work and its involvement with contractors.

In addition, Galliford Try’s Building business has been reappointed to the new YORBuild medium works band. The framework is valued at £640m in total for projects between £4m-£10m, and is available to local authorities and public sector bodies across the Yorkshire and Humber regions, as well as parts of the North East and East Midlands.

The latest iteration of the framework is aligned to the Government Construction Playbook, with a greater emphasis on early involvement, Modern Methods of Construction (MMC) and carbon reduction.

Bill Hocking, Chief Executive of Galliford Try, commented: “We are delighted to have achieved places on these two excellent frameworks. Operating in a sustainable, ethical manner is imperative in our industry and our appointments here demonstrate our alignment to the government agenda of making a positive impact in communities. We look forward to working with both organisations to provide high-quality public infrastructure across the North”.
