Galliford Try’s Building Southern business has been appointed to contracts worth a combined £56m.
Firstly, the business has been appointed to the £26m Oasis Restore Secure School in Kent, on behalf of the Ministry of Justice. The project consists of the refurbishment of the former site of Medway secure training centre to create the first secure school in the UK, including three residential blocks – creating 49 bedrooms, two educational buildings and a central services building.
Secondly, the business has concluded contracts with Worthing Borough Council to build the £30m Worthing Integrated Care Centre development.
The new facility will provide GP, mental health, community and dentistry services, a pharmacy and additional services for families and young children. A multi-storey car park will also be built at the site.
Bill Hocking, Chief Executive of Galliford Try, commented: “Our Sustainable Growth Strategy of maintaining strong positions on public sector frameworks and collaborative relationships with local authorities are borne out by these two contract wins. We look forward to working with all the stakeholders involved to produce the high-quality public facilities that local communities deserve.”
