Topic Awards

Date 28 Nov 2019

Galliford Try’s Scottish building business Morrison Construction was one of the main winners of the night at the Education Buildings Scotland awards (Nov 27), taking home the prizes for Contractor and Project of the Year.

The £32m West Calder High School project was the successful winner in the project category, holding off competition from another Morrison project, Newbattle High School, while Morrison claimed the contractor prize ahead of the likes of Morgan Sindall, BAM construction and Robertsons.

The awards dinner took place at the end of day one of the Education Buildings Scotland conference.

Ian Jubb, Managing Director for Building, commented: "Education has been a very successful sector for our business in recent years and Morrison Construction has been a major part of that. Throughout Scotland we have an excellent track record of working with the Hub procurement vehicles and local authorities to deliver high quality facilities from small local primaries to large community education hubs that make a real difference to students and teachers."
