The Sandy-based company’s building maintenance arm is the preferred bidder for a £600 million contract to repair and maintain property owned by North Tyneside Council. The contract, which is for an initial ten years, is set to join Kier’s already well-established large portfolio of local authority outsourcing work.
Kier is one of three contractors to form the East Midlands Property Alliance Intermediate Projects Partnering Framework. This £275 million four-year project is for the procurement of new build and refurbishment schemes in the region.
Kier Group’s construction division has won a £27 million contract from Network Rail to renew the roof at King’s Cross Station for Network Rail as part of the station’s £450 million upgrade.
The project also includes the repair, refurbishment and renewal of the main wrought iron structure to restore the Grade I listed building, constructed in the 1850s, to its former glory.
Group chief executive John Dodds said: “These latest contracts illustrate our diversity which, in these challenging times, is a great strength to have on board. Kier is not only diverse; it is flexible with the ability to adapt quickly to changing markets.
"We are extremely proud of our involvement with these projects and look forward to demonstrating how, whether as main contractor, service provider or framework partner, we are committed to offering the best possible quality of product and service.”
