A £38 million contract to construct five new schools across Hull and the rest of East Yorkshire has been awarded to a London-based construction company.

Galliford Try’s Normanton-based North-East and Yorkshire building division will undertake work on the opening section of the Priority School Building scheme.

The Government programme will include Hessle High School and Sixth Form College’s £18.6 million construction.

The other four educational establishments will be Ainthorpe, Wold, Francis Askew and Eastfield primary schools.

Galliford Try announced the new contract to coincide with a further education deal – a £17 million contract working for Moray Council. Greg Fitzgerald, the firm’s executive chairman, called education a “cornerstone” of its nationwide business and expressed his delight at the award.

Galliford Try, which has about 5,000 employees, is among the FTSE 250 companies.

The business said it is unrivalled in the areas of facilities management, PPP investments and regeneration and helping to build sustainable futures.
