Graham Construction is an award-winning national construction, asset management and project investment specialist.

The company operates from a number of regional offices around the UK and delivers expert services to a variety of clients.

Graham Construction works across a range of sectors from education and healthcare to commercial, residential, leisure and transport. A scheme currently underway for Graham Construction is the CPC Regeneration project, a three year scheme being undertaken for Rolls-Royce. The £40 million project forms part of a redevelopment programme which is underway at Raynesway in Derby and is being conducted in phases.

Over the course of the three year scheme Graham Construction will construct a 2,400m² reception building, a 520m² energy centre, a 7,200m² manufacturing facility and a 1,500m² product assembly building. The project began on 20th February 2013 with a ground breaking ceremony which was attended by Vice Admiral Sir Andrew Matthews.

A more recent project for Graham Construction is the Peel Park Campus project at the University of Salford. The £81 million project will see the contractor build nine accommodation blocks, ranging from five to nine storeys in height and will provide a total of 1,387 new bed spaces across two sites.

Work began on the project in November 2013 as part of the Salford Villages consortium. The consortium includes Graham Investment Projects, Campus Living Villages, Equitix and Kier Project Investment, who have jointly invested and developed the property with the project finance provided by Standard Life Investments. In July 2014 the project celebrated a milestone through the implementation of a topping out ceremony. The site is officially scheduled to open in September 2015.

Other projects for Graham Construction include the Creative Arts Building for City College in Norwich; the St Columba’s Hospice project in Edinburgh; Kensington & Park Terrace for Newcastle University and a flagship lounge for Aer Lingus at Dublin Airport Terminal 2. Graham Construction was also responsible for the delivery of the Royal Commonwealth Pool in Edinburgh and the Sonic Arts Centre at Queen’s University in Belfast.

A spokesperson for Graham Construction said:

“Our business is focused on building and maintaining the infrastructure we all rely on in everyday life. We win work through positive personal relationships, understanding client needs and priorities, being innovative in the solutions we develop and delivering when we promise.
