Kier bags £25m Lincoln Council project

Kier has won a £25 million contract with Lincoln City Council to maintain and improve council houses.

Kier will be responsible for installing new kitchens, bathrooms, windows and doors and rewiring at some properties to upgrade 8,000 homes to meet the government’s Decent Homes standard.

It will also develop community projects in the city and provide dozens of jobs, with all employees working on the scheme living in or around Lincoln.

The work is wide-ranging: one initiative will see tenant complaints moved online, while another will see the firm distribute seeds and tools for allotments.

Lincoln Council said the partnership will enable it to save £1.5 million over the next five years, and that the contract could potentially be extended to 2023.

Kier regional managing director Simon Bullen said: “We have been awarded this contract based on the merit of our work in Lincoln over the last seven years and our reputation as a high quality service provider.”
