Construction firm Galliford Try has been awarded a contract to design, build and maintain the heating provision of the UK’s first large-scale zero-carbon housing scheme.
The firm signed an “energy service company” deal for the project in Graylingwell Park in West Sussex, which is expected to bring in £18M of business for Galliford over 25 years.
Initial work entails electrical and mechanical fit-out and installation of heating mains and cabling.
The project is a mixed-use development by Linden Downland Graylingwell LLP, a collaboration with Galliford Try and housebuilder Affinity Sutton for the Homes and Communities Agency.
Galliford Try’s Greg Fitzgerald said: “We have a growing business in renewable energy provision and securing this contract for the long term supply to Graylingwell Park demonstrates our capability in this growth market.”
