Galliford Try‘s Building North East and Yorkshire business has secured a contract to construct a commercial office building on behalf of Middlesbrough Council with funding from the Tees Valley Combined Authority in the UK.
Awarded through the Procure Partnership Framework, the project is titled Boho X.
The scheme, which features 60,000ft2 of office space over six storeys, is situated in a town centre location.
It will also include new ground floor amenities including a gym and studio area, along with entertaining spaces on the rooftop, including a lecture theatre, terrace and bar area.
Galliford Try stated that the scheme has set a target of spending 80% of the costs within the local supply chain, and creating employment opportunities for local entrants.
Galliford Try Building North East and Yorkshire managing director Cliff Wheatley said: “We are delighted to have been entrusted by Middlesbrough Council to deliver this important new facility for the local community.
“In a post-pandemic world, high-quality working spaces are still going to be necessary, and we look forward to working with all the stakeholders involved to produce a real statement building for the town centre.”
In July, Galliford Try secured a contract of the Northumbrian Water’s AMP7 framework.
Under the contract, the company is responsible for the construction and engineering works of the water and wastewater assets worth more than £10m over the lifecycle of the framework.
These works are related to Northumbrian Water Operating area and the Essex and Suffolk Water Operating areas.
