The firm said S4B, an Equitix-led partnership that includes Galliford and Contour Homes, had been appointed as preferred bidder for the Brunswick regeneration scheme.

The project will provide 522 new homes as well as new community facilities, including an Extra Care centre (which offers support to elderly residents) and retail units.

Extensive infrastructure works and remodelling will also be carried out under the deal.

"This award is a further demonstration of our strength in regeneration, and our ability to successfully partner with local councils across the country to deliver the housing and facilities that communities need," said Galliford's Chief Executive, Greg Fitzgerald.
