Construction group Galliford Try has secured contracts worth £77m to build two new office buildings in the UK.

The company will build Northamptonshire County Council's (NCC) new headquarters in Northampton for £38m and an office building for offshore engineering firm Subsea 7 in Surrey for £39m.

The four-storey Northampton headquarters will be built on an area of 17,600m² and will consolidate with the council's current offices in the town.

"We are delighted that Northamptonshire County Council and Subsea 7 have entrusted us with such significant projects." 

The headquarters, designed by BDP, was approved by the council's planning committee in May of this year, and will feature a café and landscaping around the site.

NBC councillor leader Jim Harker previously said: "This building is essential for us as an organisation as it will allow us to make £54m worth of savings by moving out of a current stock of 12 expensive-to-run, ageing HQ buildings in Northampton into one purpose-built, energy-efficient, low-carbon building."

Meanwhile, Subsea 7's office building at Sutton in Surrey will feature 150,000ft² of category-A office space and associated facilities.

Galliford Try executive chairman Greg Fitzgerald said: "We are delighted that Northamptonshire County Council and Subsea 7 have entrusted us with such significant projects.

"We have a strong reputation in the office sector and we look forward to providing these two clients with the first-class facilities they require."
