Galliford Try has won three building contracts in Greater Manchester totalling £36.5m.

RED Property Services has appointed Galliford Try to construct the £13m Old Trafford Supporters Club hotel, opposite the Manchester United football ground.

The new four-star 139-bed hotel will feature supporters' club facilities and bar, alongside additional retail units.


Galliford Try has concluded an agreement with The Carlyle Group and its joint venture partners Nikal and Abstract Securities to build the second stage of the Soapworks project.

The £12.5m contract covers the entire second phase of the project and will create 210,000 sq ft of Category A office space in the old Colgate-Palmolive factory that adjoins the MediaCityUK complex at Salford Quays.


Muse Developments has contracted Galliford Try to deliver the sixth phase of the Smithfield residential project in Manchester.

The £10.75m phase of the development will see the creation of 77 one, two and three-bedroom apartments for private sale, and associated retail units.

Greg Fitzgerald, chief executive of Galliford Try, said: "These new contracts build on our track record and in particular our recent successes in Greater Manchester, demonstrating the strength of our regional construction business in all sectors."
