CRASH Patron Galliford Try Signs Up Team for ‘Bear Grylls challenge’

members of the London Lyons team demonstrate their commitment to training during their site office, in advance of the Bear Grylls Challenge!

CRASH charity Patron Galliford Try has signed up  a team of 10 to the ‘Bear Grylls challenge’, a test of strength, agility, balance, resourcefulness and determination.

The 10-man strong team comprises individuals from a range of roles from within the Galliford Try Partnerships South East business, from site manager to design manager, all of whom are working on the £35million Edgware Road mixed-use regeneration development, located in west London.

Known as ‘The London Lyons ’, relevant to the project’s development name, Lyons Place, the team will go head-to-head with their client, Almacantar and Employer’s Agent (EA), Core Five to battle the elements of the desert, arctic, jungle and mountain which will feature British adventurer and TV personality Bear Grylls’ bespoke obstacles and survival challenges over 5km.

Galliford Try is one of the UK’s leading construction and housebuilding groups with revenues of circa £2.7 billion. Recognised for their high standards of project delivery and their approach to innovation and continuous improvement – from customer service, through project design and delivery, to supply chain management – they play an increasing role in contributing to the future of the UK’s built environment.
