Graham Construction has been selected by Barnet Council to build around £150M of new projects in Barnet, UK.Major projects will include a range of new buildings including schools, leisure centres and community centres to meet the demands of a growing population. Schemes already confirmed include two new leisure centres at Copthall and New Barnet, the Tarling Road Community Centre in East Finchley and school expansion projects. Cllr Richard Cornelius, leader of Barnet Council, said: “As our borough expands so does the need for us to provide more housing, school places, leisure centres and community facilities for our residents, which is why we are investing £565 million in the future of the borough. Barnet has a good track record of building major projects on time and on budget and this new partnership with Graham provides us further opportunity to deliver these important new buildings which will serve our residents for many years to come.”Rod McMullan, Graham Construction’s director of the partnership, said: “The London Borough of Barnet partnership focuses on quality, value, and cost certainty and we are confident that the knowledge and experience gained from our extensive ongoing education portfolio and Inner-London projects will ensure the council’s Capital Projects pipeline is delivered on time and within budget. We are looking forward to working with the council and the wider team to further improve the range and quality of council services and strengthen Barnet’s reputation as a thriving environment.”Graham will deliver improvements to existing buildings and new projects over the next five years, with the option to extend for another two years subject to budget and performance.
