Galliford Try’s Scottish business, Morrison Construction has been awarded a £28m contract under a £45m Moray Council project to upgrade flood defences at Forres in Northern Scotland.
The project is part of the wider £177 million Moray Flood Alleviation scheme which is worked on by the council with engineering consultants Royal HaskoningDHV, Morrison Construction and EC Harris to solve flooding issues across Moray.
The project will alleviate potential flooding to the town of Forres from the Findhorn and Pilmuir catchments, by recreating riverside flood plains, constructing set-back flood defences and forming a new drainage channel with pumping station.
The contract is due to start in September, with completion in Spring 2015.
Galliford Try chief executive Greg Fitzgerald said: “We are delighted to strengthen our relationship with The Moray Council by securing this important contract to deliver a fifth scheme through our existing construction partnering arrangement.”
