Galliford Try secures RAF construction contract

Galliford Try has been awarded a construction contract by BAE Systems to build facilities for a Typhoon squadron at RAF Coningsby in Lincolnshire.

The £23million construction contract will create new facilities for 12 squadron, a joint RAF/Qatar Emir Air force unit. The building will use both traditional construction techniques and modular building.

Galliford Try also signed a £7.9million contract with the Defence Infrastructure Organisation (DIO) to build an accommodation block for personnel training at the Commando Training Centre Royal Marines (CTCRM). The facilities will include a 181-bed block for junior ranks, with eight-bed rooms and ten-bed rooms, as well as supporting offices, and a communal area at the site near Lympstone, Devon.

Keith Yarham, Defence Director for Galliford Try, said: “Defence is a key sector for our business and one in which we have a growing reputation for building high-quality, technically demanding facilities. The award of these two contracts demonstrates the breadth of our offering to the sector and our ability to deliver appropriate solutions for our clients.”

Simon Jones, the DIO Project Manager, said: “This new accommodation will be purpose-built for personnel at CTCRM Lympstone. We are looking forward to working with both Galliford Try and our technical services partner AECOM on providing these essential facilities.”

The company released plans for the design of the Lincolnshire facilities. The contract comes after the sale of Typhoon jets to Qatar.

As well as accommodation the company will also provide aircraft hangars for Typhoon jets, flight line shelters, and a training building at RAF Coningsby. Galliford Try has recently scaled back parts of its business, reducing operations by a third in some areas.
