Galliford Try wins £70m Oxford immigration centre

Galliford Try has secured two big Government contracts for an immigration centre in Oxfordshire and the next phase expansion of the defence intelligence estate at RAF Wyton, together worth £101m.

First, the group’s Building Southern business has reached financial close with the Home Office for a £70m project to reopen Campsfield House immigration removal centre in Kidlington, Oxfordshire.

The project will see the construction of a 400-bedroom immigration removal centre for men which forms part of the Government’s plan to expand the detention estate by a third.

Secondly, the Building East Midlands business has been appointed by the Defence Infrastructure Organisation to undertake the £31m PRIDE 2 project at RAF Wyton at St Ives in Cambridgeshire.

The scheme consists of a combination of refurbishment and creation of new secure office space for UK Strategic Command.

Bill Hocking, chief executive of Galliford Try, said: “We are delighted to be working with our partners at the MOJ, Home Office and DIO on these two significant projects.

“These appointments, in key markets for our Sustainable Growth Strategy, are testament to our strong track record in collaborating successfully with both organisations, and we look forward to working with all the stakeholders to create high-quality outcomes for all those involved.”
