Galliford Try gets hole in one at Gleneagles

Galliford Try has been appointed official construction services supplier to the 2014 Ryder Cup at Gleneagles.

Under the official supplier agreement, Galliford Try’s Scottish arm Morrison Construction will build two temporary coach terminals for the 2014 golf competition.

It will also be the preferred partner for any additional construction works ahead of the Ryder Cup.

Galliford Try chief executive Greg Fitzgerald said: “We are proud to be an official supplier of the Ryder Cup 2014, one of the top sporting events in the world, and we are genuinely thrilled to play our part in it at Gleneagles.

“The Ryder Cup is about much more than a sporting spectacle for Scotland. It is already creating a real legacy through business opportunities for Scottish companies and their supply chains and improvements to local infrastructure,” he added.

Ryder Cup match director Edward Kitson said the new coach terminals would be important to the successful delivery of the competition, as thousands of spectators travel to and from Gleneagles.

Organisers of the Ryder Cup operate a sustainable procurement code and seek to maximise the use of renewable energy, deliver zero waste to landfill, and minimise water consumption through reuse and recycling at tournaments.

Mr Kitson added there would be “a high priority being placed on environmental issues while delivering the project”.

The Ryder Cup does not publish the value of its partnership agreements.
