Member News: Happy 15th Birthday Gallaway Construction Ltd

Mar 17th, 2017 - Last updated at Mar 17th, 2017


Gallaway is delighted to be celebrating 15 years of trading since its inception on 27th March 2002.

Established by Ian Preston (pictured), his vision was to set up a construction company where he could become involved with clients right at the outset of a project, to be able to add value to their build at an early stage, working alongside the structural engineers and architects as a collaboration, rather than being another cog in a growing and impersonal wheel. This Early Stage Involvement (ESI) still firmly remains at the heart of how we operate today, as we offer high quality Design & Build services as well as more traditional project solutions in all sectors.

Since those early days, we have grown and developed a well-established team of staff with a broad range of construction disciplines, operatives as well as a committed supply chain of partners, all of which continue to support us as we look ahead to our next 15 years.

As a successful multi-disciplinary Construction and Civil engineering organisation based in Manchester, we have worked for a wide range of clients during this, ranging from major construction contractors, industrial companies through to smaller private companies, both directly and via professional appointments.

Gallaway's full complement of design professionals, co-ordinators and Project Managers enable us to offer high quality Design & Build services as well as more traditional project solutions in all sectors. From large industrial buildings such as the completed works on Europe’s largest water treatment plant, to housing, schools, commercial offices, hotels, high security healthcare, prisons, rail and civil engineering projects. We are highly experienced in both new build projects and complex extension and refurbishment services.

Having recently completed the Goldman Sachs 10,000 Small Business’s Program, Gallaway has a clear plan for further growth and expansion in the coming months, and are centrally placed to play a key role in the ‘Future Carrington’ redevelopment program.

As a company, it is important to us to feel that we are giving something back to the community. With this in mind, a number of our team are in the process of being trained up to become telephone friends for the charity The Silver Line, whereby we spend half an hour a week talking to a designated older person, who may otherwise have no-one else to talk to. We have also completed some refurbishment works for the local community hall for the Parish Council, and sponsored an employees son, who, through The Jubilee Sailing Trust, accompanied disabled soldiers on a tall ship voyage.
