Galliford Try awarded £25m contract to build Airbus UK testing centre

Galliford Try has been awarded the contract to build a testing centre for Airbus UK’s latest aircraft technology.

The £25m contract will see the firm build the Airbus Wing Integration Centre near Bristol.

The facility at the company’s Filton base (pictured) will include an adaptable physical test environment for future technologies, new materials and manufacturing techniques. At full capacity it will house about 250 Airbus engineers, as well as Airbus’ corporate-level research and technology teams.

Galliford Try South-west director Mark Wusthoff said: “This contract is a significant step forward for our business and builds on our growing track record in constructing high-quality facilities for advanced manufacturing.

“We are delighted to be working with Airbus again, having previously completed two projects at Filton in 2013, and we are excited to be part of a flagship project for both Airbus and the wider Western region around Bristol.”
