Galliford Try’s Scottish business Morrison Construction has been awarded a £34m contract to rebuild a high school in Edinburgh.
The project involves demolition of the existing school buildings at James Gillespie’s High School in Edinburgh and construction of a new teaching block and sports and performance buildings.
A Grade A-listed building at the centre of the school’s campus will also undergo a major refurbishment.
Morrison Construction will work for public/private development company Hub South East Scotland, on behalf of the City of Edinburgh Council, to deliver the project.
It was also selected to build two new secondary schools worth for £48m-worth of schools work by Hub South East Scotland last month.
Galliford Try’s facilities management business will provide lifecycle management and hard FM services for the new school in a contract worth a further £10m over 25 years.
Galliford Try chief executive Greg Fitzgerald said: “Our relationship with hub South East Scotland Limited is an important element of our Morrison business in Scotland and we are pleased to be selected for this significant education project for Edinburgh.
“We will continue to work with our public and private sector colleagues in Scotland to find innovative ways of delivering these projects that are so beneficial for local communities.”
