Contractor picked for £400m repairs job

Kier has been appointed preferred bidder by Stoke-on-Trent City Council for a £400 million joint venture repairs and maintenance contract.

For the work, the firm is part of a newly formed joint venture company in which the council will take a 20 per cent share on the city's 20,000 council houses.

The contract is for ten years with an option to extend for a further five.

Also included in the agreement will be repairs and maintenance to the city's municipal buildings which Kier will perform using its asset management team.

The new arrangements come into effect in the New Year.
