Rotherham-based contractor The Horbury Group has won contracts at three universities worth a total of ВЈ8.5m.
Horbury Building Systems (HBS) and MWS Joinery, two of the nine companies which make up the group, have been appointed to work as a subcontractor on campus accommodation expansions in Leeds, York and Birmingham.

The projects, which are being developed at Leeds’ Metropolitan University’s Carnegie Village, York’s Goodricke College and Birmingham’s Aston University sites, will house over 4,000 students between them.

Trevor Wragg, managing director of The Horbury Group, said: “These developments are massive regeneration projects for the cities in question as they will draw more students and visitors to the areas.
