Galliford Try Plc has recently announced that its Miller Construction - an Ediburgh-based division - has been appointed by Network Rail to deliver building enhancements and property improvements across three framework contracts over the next five years as part of Network Rail Infrastructure Project’s CP5 Frameworks.
The company purchased Miller Construction – a loss making division of Miller Group - in July 2014. The group will work in collaboration with Network Rail and various other appointed contractors to deliver railway engineering solutions in the aforementioned frameworks.
These framework appointments, valued up to £250m, will see the delivery of building projects such as new stations, station enhancements, platform extensions and depots. In addition, Miller Construction has also been appointed to deliver office building and property refurbishment as part of the SNE Region Renewals Collaborative Delivery Programme.
The project will cover the Central Region East Midlands route which covers London St. Pancras to Sheffield, London King’s Cross to Berwick-upon-Tweed, and Crewe to Carlisle including Liverpool and Manchester.
Chief Executive of Galliford Try, Greg Fitzgerald, said: “These major framework wins highlight one of the compelling reasons that we acquired Miller Construction. This appointment represents a key opportunity for us to grow our business in this sector and we look forward to working with Network Rail to provide high quality new facilities across these selected routes.”
The agreements will span between five and six years, running from 2014 – 2019, with further options to extend to the end of the Control Period in 2024.
