Kier secure £15m Southampton Sea City Museum deal

Kier has been awarded the contract to build the £15 million Southampton Sea City Museum.

Southampton City Council has received £4.9m in lottery funding to put towards the development in the city’s Grade II listed Magistrates’ Courts.

Southampton City Council’s cabinet member for leisure, culture and heritage, councillor John Hannides,  said: “The appointment of Kier brings us one step closer to the realisation of the Sea City Museum that will showcase Southampton’s amazing maritime heritage, with exhibitions focussing on Southampton’s Titanic story and the city’s role as a gateway to the world.

“It feels like we are really moving forward with this project, now that Kier will be preparing to start work on the museum. This fabulous museum will draw thousands of visitors to Southampton every year and will create many more jobs for the local economy.”
