Galliford has also been engaged by Aviva Investors and Citycourt Estates to construct the new Warwickshire Shopping Park at Binley near Coventry.
The £13.5m retail park is expected to complete in January 2013 and will feature 24 retail units and community spaces, with Marks & Spencer, Boots and Asda already committed to the project.
"We are delighted to have won such significant contracts in the commercial sector," said Galliford's Chief Executive Greg Fitzgerald.
"The London office sector remains an important market for us, while the Warwickshire Shopping Park is yet another landmark project for Galliford Try in the Midlands region," she said.
