Kier lands new housing maintenance contracts
Kier has bolstered its presence in the north-west and Staffordshire by announcing its participation in a £32 million framework agreement and a contract valued up to £300,000 per year.
The construction firm has been named on the Fusion 21 planned maintenance framework, which covers registered providers of social housing across the UK.
A social enterprise, the scheme aims to promote public procurement as a means of saving money and creating social outcomes through purchasing contractor services and supplies in a coordinated manner.
Work on the project, which began in April, includes everything from installing new central heating systems and windows to fitting out bathrooms and kitchens in all residential properties covered by the agreement.
In preparation for a host of new tenants, Kier has also been carrying out vital refurbishments to Empowering People Inspiring Communities Housing's void properties in Stoke-on-Trent.
This contract ranges from minor repairs to the fitting of full bathroom and kitchen replacements.
Worth an annual total of up to £300,000, the deal will run for an initial period of two years, with the option of extending it by a further two years.
David Mawson, regional managing director at Kier, said: "These two new wins demonstrate the strength of our service provision highlighting the range of our abilities across both social housing and public buildings.
"We look forward to working with both of our new clients to enhance and improve their repairs and maintenance service provision, and are committed to delivering the best value service for local people over the coming years."
Earlier this month, the company secured the latest phase of development at Egghill in Birmingham, with the contract including the construction of 400 new homes and a neighbourhood park on Tessall Lane in Northfield. The development value of the project is expected to be in the region of £52 million.
