Galliford Try has secured two contracts worth a total of £73 million.
The firm’s Scottish construction arm, Morrison Construction, has been awarded a £50m contract by lead contractor Petrofac as part of a new £500m onshore gas plant for Total E & P UK Ltd and DONG E&P (UK) Ltd in the Shetland Islands.
The works on land adjacent to Sullom Voe terminal include access roads, plant, foundations, underground drainage structures, buildings, and hard landscaping. The project starts next month and is due for completion in October 2013.
Greg Fitzgerald, chief executive of Galliford Try, said: “We have a leading presence in the Scottish construction market and this project draws on the wide range of building and civil engineering skills we can deliver for our clients.”
Galliford Try has also been awarded a £23m contract to build Henry Moore Court, a prestigious residential development in west London, by developers Athos (Manresa Road) Ltd, a joint venture between the Athos Group and the Carlyle Group.
The new development, being built on the site of the former Chelsea College of Art on Manresa Road, features two luxury houses, 15 luxury apartments and eight affordable houses. Work is expected to start on site in July and completed in December 2012.
