Kier bags £600m with major council partnerships

Kier has landed two major contracts to deliver services for Staffordshire and Northamptonshire local authorities, totalling £600m.

The first is a £400m, 10-year Strategic Property Partnership with Staffordshire County Council and the Police and Crime Commissioner for Staffordshire.

Works will include a range of property services such as development, disposal, acquisition, construction, asset management and facilities management.

The joint venture will begin in April next year and has the potential 5-year extension, with an estimated value of £40m per annum.

The contractor has also been awarded a 4-year extension of an existing highways services contract with Northamptonshire County Council, alongside its JV partner WSP.

The extension was due for renewal in 2016.

Kier chief executive Haydn Mursell, said: “Following the acquisition of May Gurney, these new contract awards demonstrate the breadth of offering the group can provide through long-term strategic partnerships.

“We look forward to working with our partners to deliver more integrated and effective services, whilst also helping them to drive additional cost savings.”
