Galliford Try scores £36m Manchester hat-trick

Galliford Try has confirmed three contract wins worth a total of £36.5m in the Greater Manchester area.

RED Property Services has appointed Galliford Try to the £13.3m Old Trafford Supporters Club hotel, being developed by former Manchester United player Gary Neville opposite the Manchester United football ground.

The new four-star 139-bed hotel will feature supporters’ club facilities and bar, alongside additional retail units.

Galliford Try beat Bam Construction, Bowmer & Kirkland and McLaren Group to the deal, as revealed by Construction News in November 2012.

Galliford Try has also concluded an agreement with The Carlyle Group and its joint venture partners Nikal and Abstract Securities to build the second stage of the Soapworks project.

The £12.5m contract covers the second phase of the project and will create 210,000 sq ft of Category A office space in the old Colgate-Palmolive factory that adjoins the Media City complex in Salford Quays.

Meanwhile Muse Developments has contracted Galliford Try to deliver the sixth phase of the Smithfield residential project in Salford.

The £10.75m phase of the development will see the creation of 77 one, two and three-bedroom apartments for private sale, and associated retail units.

Galliford Try chief executive Greg Fitzgerald said: “These new contracts build on our track record and in particular our recent successes in Greater Manchester, demonstrating the strength of our regional construction business in all sectors.

“We are delighted to be working on these significant developments for the region, and look forward to continuing to play our part in enhancing the built environment in the North-west.”
