Galliford Try scoop £347m contract to regenerate Gateshead
Building firm Galliford Try are joining forces with Home Group and Gateshead Council to build 2,400 new homes in Gateshead.
The work is set to begin later this year and will take over a decade to complete, with a completion date of 2026 expected.
This scheme in Gateshead is one of the largest residential projects in the UK and the 2,400 homes will be affordable and eco-friendly, meeting the standards of Level 4 of the Code for Sustainable Homes.
Galliford Try have previously worked on construction projects like the roof at Centre Court at Wimbledon and the Midland Grand hotel at St Pancras in London. Their chief executive, Greg Fitzgerald said:
“We look forward to using our expertise in creating quality, sustainable housing on one of the UK’s largest regeneration projects in Gateshead.”
This project will create new construction jobs for plumbing and electrical contractors in the North East, and will dramatically regenerate the Gateshead area over the next decade.
