Galliford Try job losses in Scotland amid shutdown
Troubled construction firm Galliford Try is to close parts of its business in Scotland resulting in some job losses, the BBC has learned.
It said about 350 jobs could be lost across the UK with most in Scotland.
The company was a partner in building the Queensferry Crossing and the Aberdeen Western Peripheral Route.
Galliford Try said its construction and investments divisions would be affected and said it was a regrettable, but unavoidable step.
It is now consulting with those who could be made redundant.
Earlier this month Galliford Try issued a warning saying its profits would be £30-40m lower than the expected £156m.
A spokesperson for the company told the BBC: "Today we have announced to our employees the proposals emanating from that review which will involve the proposed closure of parts of the division, with potentially some job losses involved.
"This is a regrettable but unavoidable step and we have started to consult with those individuals potentially impacted by our proposals and are doing all that we can to support them during this difficult time.
"The major part of the proposed reorganisation will potentially see the Infrastructure business unit in Scotland be closed. It is a matter of record that for some time our business has sustained considerable losses on two major infrastructure projects within Scotland.
"We remain fully committed to our existing profitable building operations for Morrison Construction in Scotland, delivering much-needed public facilities together with our partners in the hub vehicles.
"As a business we are confident that the proposed structure we are looking to put in place will provide us with robust foundations and leave us better suited to face the key markets where our future success lies."
