HOUSEBUILDING and construction group Galliford Try has secured a pair of contracts worth a total of £49m from Yorkshire Water.

The contracts are to upgrade the Blackburn Meadows waste water treatment plant in Sheffield.

The larger of the contracts is worth £31m and will ensure that Blackburn Meadows meets the requirements of the EU’s Freshwater Fish Directive. The programme will last approximately 18 months. The second scheme is worth £18m and will result in a new mesophilic anaerobic digestion plant.

Greg Fitzgerald, chief executive of Galliford Try, said: “We are delighted to secure such substantial and significant schemes from one of our longest standing clients. We have considerable expertise and experience of anaerobic digestion from other water clients and we’re glad to have the opportunity to share this with Yorkshire Water.”
