A Kier led consortium has been named preferred bidder for Gloucestershire’s £40 million fire station scheme.
Blue 3, a consortium comprising Kier, Reliance and Calderpeel Carden Croft as co-investors, has been named preferred bidder to design, build and maintain four new community fire stations and a life skills centre in Gloucestershire on behalf of Gloucestershire County Council.
The Government is providing £40 million funding under the private finance initiative and Blue 3’s contract will run for 25 years.
Kier is the majority investor with a 70 per cent stake. The fire stations will be built by Kier Regional.
Kier Group chief executive Paul Sheffield said: “We are delighted to have been chosen to take this community project forward and Kier Moss, our Cheltenham-based office, is looking forward to delivering these much-needed facilities to benefit the people of Gloucestershire.”
