Liberum backs Galliford Try’s growth plans - HTTP://citywire.co.uk/money/the-expert-view-galliford-try-reckitt-benckiser-and-talktalk/a1034981#i=2 Housebuilder Galliford Try (GFRD) could soon be seeing a host of changes, as its new management team looks set to implement a growth plan that could add 60% to profits before tax by 2021. Liberum analyst Charlie Campbell initiated coverage of the stock with a ‘buy’ rating and £14.60 target price. The shares jumped 4.5% to £13.27 on the news. He said the plans were credible as ‘the new management team has a good track record and pedigree.’ He added that while the group did have some debt, it was ‘unconcerning’ given the level of interest cover. Campbell said the shares had overreacted to bad news across the construction sector, making the valuation compelling for those looking to buy.

Our mission is to make life easier for our customers: providing a local, trusted and responsive service for residents that delivers not just bricks and mortar – but a place they love to call home.

Galliford Try awarded £60m army barracks revamp - HTTP://www.building.co.uk/galliford-try-awarded-%C2%A360m-army-barracks-revamp/5088664.article Galliford Try has picked up a £60m contract from the Defence Infrastructure Organisation (DIO), for construction works at Catterick Garrison in North Yorkshire. The refurbishment scheme of Marne and Bourlon Barracks, including the listed Sandhurst block at the Garrison is taking place under the Army Basing Programme, which is charged with providing facilities to the British Army as its German-based forces return to the UK. The redevelopment programme will include the new Officers’ and Junior Ranks’ single living accommodation, a Senior Non Commissioned Officers’ mess, armoury, squadron offices, Quartermaster department and a multi-use games area. The contract was awarded through the DIO’s Next Generation Estates framework, which also awarded a joint venture between Galliford Try and Lagan Construction the £135m redevelopment of RAF Marham. Keith Yarham, defence director for Galliford Try, said: “The defence sector has been identified as a key area of growth for our business and this prestigious contract to rebuild these historic barracks at Catterick is another huge step forward in meeting our strategic goals.”

What was the guidance on the final divi. I have 68p pencilled in making 100p for the full year. I note divi cover is being increased from 1.7 to 2.

Interesting, given post 3905 above, that there is no commentary on the cladding front. Despite all the necessary approvals having been achieved, putting flammable panels on the outside of buildings is not going to help a company's reputation. Otherwise, GFRD looks rather cheap based on this update. All IMHO. No position here currently.

Galliford and Carter share £150m house-building framework - HTTP://www.theconstructionindex.co.uk/news/view/galliford-and-carter-share-150m-house-building-framework House-builder Aster Group has appointed Galliford Try Partnerships and Gloucester-based EG Carter & Co to a new partnering arrangement worth £150m. The contractors are each in line to build up to 500 homes a year for the next five years across the south of England. The contract forms part of Aster’s wider plans to invest £1.5bn in new homes between now and 2024, including a planned 1,100 properties during 2017/18. Aster assistant development director Tony Clifford said: “We are increasing the number of homes we build every year and our footprint continues to expand across the south of England. We have recognised that by working closely with the right number of contractors who share our vision we can build strong long-term partnerships that will support Aster in delivering more land-led opportunities over the coming years. “These partnerships complement the delivery of our section 106 developments and support our vision that everyone deserves a home.” The partnering contract is for an initial five-year period. Marc Thompson, head of strategy and projects at Galliford Try Partnerships, said: “Galliford Try Partnerships has ambitious plans for growth throughout the south of England and strategic partnerships with like-minded organisations such as Aster are key to delivering our goals. We look forward to working with Aster over the coming years to help them realise their ambitions and increase the supply of housing for local communities.”...

HTTP://www.mirror.co.uk/news/uk-news/thousands-could-evacuated-more-homes-10672063 ...People living in the two-year-old Rivers Apartments in Tottenham, North London, have been told by Newlon Housing Trust that their building is wrapped in the same lethal material as Grenfell. In emails seen by the Daily Mirror, Newlon told residents that builder Galliford Try had revealed it used a flammable brand of panel, rather than the fire resistant kind. Newlon’s Housing Services director Bill Henderson apparently told one resident: “This should not have been used in a building like Rivers.” The trust told residents it is “very likely, almost certain” the panels will be replaced... ...A Galliford Try spokesman said last night: “At completion, Rivers Apartments received all the appropriate statutory approvals required under the contract including building regulations and building warranty. “The build includes a range of fire prevention measures including sprinklers in all flats, smoke ventilator shafts, fire lobbies, a fire-fighting lift and secured exit routes. “We are working closely with Newlon Housing Trust to review the technical aspects of the cladding used on the scheme while keeping the trust and its residents fully informed.”...

Galliford/Lagan jv wins £135m RAF Marham hangar - HTTP://www.constructionenquirer.com/2017/06/21/gallifordlagan-jv-wins-135m-raf-marham-hangar/ The MoD’s estate procurement arm has picked a Galliford Try/Lagan joint venture to build a new hangar and upgrade runways to support new fast jets at RAF Marham. Under a £135m contract the joint venture will deliver a new aircraft hangar capable of housing 12 of the F-35B Lightning jet aircraft. The F-35B Lightning aircraft is an advanced, 5th generation jet that the Royal Air Force and the Royal Navy will fly from Queen Elizabeth Class aircraft carriers or from operating bases such as RAF Marham. The project also includes resurfacing two existing runways and taxiways while the station remains operational. Vertical landing pads will also be added to RAF Marham, accommodating the F-35B’s ability to land vertically, a capability previously covered by the Harrier jets. The major investment in RAF Marham is the last of seven projects worth £250m undertaken to ready the station for the arrival of the aircraft in 2018.

DR_SMITH - Would agree. Both construction & housebuilding appear to be out of favour at present. Additional uncertainty re legacy contracts means GFRD struggling at present. However, ought to be a decent LTBH even if the dividend were to be held at the current level.

Thank you for posting Speedsgh. I see it says "was originally pencilled in for 2019." so allays my immediate concern that staff/resources may have been re-shuffled needlessly in readiness, so hopefully there is no cost to the company. You never know, following review there could be more work, so in my view, I am taking it as news but not detrimental to company/sector in any way - though I feel sector (non house building/construction) has been down recently with the election.

Delay hits £38m Galliford office job after council rethink - HTTPS://www.constructionnews.co.uk/companies/contractors/galliford-try/delay-hits-38m-galliford-office-job-after-council-rethink/10020844.article A “landmark” office scheme for Northumberland County Council due to be built by Galliford Try has been put on hold, Construction News understands. Galliford Try was appointed to the £32m project in December last year, beating Bowmer & Kirkland and McLaughlin & Harvey to the contract to deliver the five-storey Grade A office in Ashington town centre. The contractor hosted a ground-breaking ceremony at the Portland Park site in February this year, but it is understood work has now halted on the site after a change in council leadership following local elections in May. The local council, now led by the Conservatives, has said it will undertake a review of all its development projects, which are being led by the council’s development arm Arch. In a statement, Arch said: “All of Arch’s current onsite developments, other than the planned construction of the new county council headquarters on the Portland Park site in Ashington, will proceed as planned...
