Murphy win large £11m development contract in Henley-on-Thames

Murphy and Sons Ltd has been appointed principal contractor on a project valued at over £11 million by Catalyst Capital, to construct 14 high end residential apartments and 10 retail units in Henley-on-Thames.

The project will benefit the local community by giving the town additional high quality residential and commercial properties in a thriving area. The development will also feature a surface level car park to serve the residential properties. 

Murphy CEO John Murphy said: “We’re pleased to have been awarded this contract and proud to be constructing this fantastic development for Catalyst Capital. This mixed-use scheme will be a great addition to the community, and we’re looking forward to getting started and using our engineering skills to deliver a really world class development for the people of Henley-on-Thames.” 

Murphy has an established legacy of delivering high quality construction, housing development and property services projects across London and the UK. 

Shaun Sheldrake, Murphy’s managing director of construction & property said: “This project is a really interesting mixed use scheme in the heart of the community. We will be putting retail customers and local residents at the heart of this work and will do everything we can to minimise disruption.” 

The development project will begin in August 2018 when the site will be established and archaeology works will start. 

Paul Sanders, Project Director at Catalyst Capital added: “We’re pleased to commence work on our Gardiner Place development with Murphy. The development will create a vibrant mixed-use scheme that will further strengthen Henley-on-Thames’s aspirational retail and leisure offer as well as providing luxury living.” 

The project will complete in February 2020.
