Galliford Try bags biggest ever affordable housing job
Galliford Try has confirmed it has bagged a brace of affordable housing jobs worth together £106m.
In its largest ever single project, Galliford Try’s Partnerships business has been selected by Notting Hill Housing to build the £81m Great Eastern Quays project in East London’s Royal Docks.
The regeneration scheme will see the creation of up to 350 mixed tenure homes, as well as the development of public spaces alongside the river and the docks, including business, retail and leisure areas.
Partnerships has also been selected for a new £25m contract with Registered Provider Coast and Country Housing, to build six new Extra Care developments in Redcar.
The project will see the creation of 225 units and ancillary facilities across the surrounding region over the next three years.
In addition, the firm has secured £20m funding from the HCA under the Affordable Homes Programme 2015-18.
The award is the largest made to a commercial house builder and will help fund 858 affordable homes at projects across the country.
Galliford Try Chief Executive Greg Fitzgerald said: “Affordable housing has become a real success story for our company across the country.
“The selection of Partnerships for its biggest ever single contract by Notting Hill Housing is testament to the strength of the brand and the hard work of the team.
“Likewise, our track record in Extra Care continues to resonate with clients and we look forward to working with our partners to produce high quality housing for their customers.”
