Miller wins £129m police PFI

Blue Light consortium to build and maintain four buildings for Avon & Somerset Police

Miller Construction confirmed it has won a £129m deal to build new facilities for Avon & Somerset Police.

The Blue Light Partnership, comprising Miller Construction and Bilfinger Berger Project Investments, was announced as preferred bidder for the PFI deal on Wednesday.

The deal was revealed by Construction News on 20 January.

The project includes the development of new four facilities at Portishead, Bristol Patchway, Keynsham and Bridgwater and maintenance of the buildings for 25 years. The buildings house a firearms training centre for three police forces, custody and crime investigation facilities, a police station and an enquiry office.

Miller provided project investment and is principal contractor for the schemes.

Chris Webster, chief executive, Miller Construction, said: “We will continue to work closely with the Avon and Somerset team and once the process is complete we will be quickly mobilising the build programme.  Early in 2011 we held an open day for local subcontractors in order to establish a potential local supply chain.  We are looking forward to progressing some of these initial conversations, which in turn could deliver economic and sustainable benefits for the local business community.”
