GALLIFORD TRY WINS £37M LEEDS UNIVERSITY CONTRACT
Galliford Try has signed two contracts with the University of Leeds for building refurbishment work, worth a total of £37.8m.
Firstly, Galliford Try has been contracted to refurbish the Engineering Building at the university's main Woodhouse campus. This £22.5m project involves refurbishing levels three, four and five of the 1960s building, as well as completing a maintenance backlog on the remainder of the building.
Secondly, Galliford Try will undertake a £15.3m refurbishment of the Grade II listed Edward Boyle Library. The scheme, which encompasses all six floors of the 1970s building, includes fully refurbishing the study areas and replacing the engineering systems and roof.
Galliford Try executive chairman Greg Fitzgerald said: "We are delighted to have been able to maintain the strong ties that our Yorkshire office has with the University of Leeds with these successes. The strategy for our construction business is based on long-term relationships with respected clients and these two contracts are an excellent example of that approach."
