Morrison Construction scoops £57m Orkney Islands schools deal

Galliford Try’s Scottish construction business Morrison Construction has been selected as preferred bidder for the Orkney Islands Council’s £57 million schools investment programme.

The project, which is being funded with support from the Scottish government and the Scottish Futures Trust, will see a grammar school, arts theatre and halls of residence built in Kirkwall, a new primary school in Stromness, a swimming pool and squash courts at the Pickaquoy Centre and three all weather pitches. The construction work will be carried out over the next three years.

Galliford Try Facilities Management will provide a range of services for 10 years including building and grounds maintenance.

Galliford Try chief executive Greg Fitzgerald said: “We’re delighted to build on our experience of major education schemes through this key role with the Orkney Islands Council. We look forward to working closely with all our partners and communities to develop high quality facilities which will modernise the provision of local services.”
