Kier has won a £48m contract with global technology company ARM to expand its HQ in Cambridge.
The contractor will provide 18,000 sq m of office space and two multi-storey car parks at the group’s headquarters in Peterhouse Technology Park, Cambridge.
The office will be constructed using a steel frame and aluminium solar shading curtain walling, which will form a 6 m-high sawtooth pattern.
The HQ expansion is expected to more than double ARM’s UK workforce over the next five years.
Kier Construction Eastern managing director Mark Dady said: “We have a strong track record of delivering office space across the UK and are looking forward to providing a facility that will help ARM to continue expanding.”
This is the second contract Kier has won this week in Cambridge after Construction News revealed it scooped a place on the university’s £500m estate management framework.
Eight contractors including Balfour Beatty, Bam Construct, Bouygues and Laing O’Rourke have also secured places on the two-year framework, which has a potential to be extended a further three years.
