Kier goes back to school for £170m projects

Kier Construction has been awarded the contract for 13 school projects with a total value of around £170million.

The contracts will see Kier, which has offices in Quedgeley, provide facilities for 11,304 pupils across England and Wales with a mix of new build, conversions and refurbishment projects.

Among the projects are Barton Court Academy, a new free school in Canterbury, the transformation of a former police station and court buildings into a STEAM specialist school in Bournemouth and an £18million new building science, ICT and design technology art block for Stantonbury International School in Milton Keynes.

Chief executive Andrew Davies said: "Through our delivery of these vital new school buildings we will provide critical infrastructure and support the Government's aim of laying the foundations for everyone to have the opportunity to succeed.

"As a leading provider of educational buildings, we will use our expertise to deliver with a firm focus on quality, reducing carbon emissions and innovative solutions, through digitisation and modern methods of construction."

Over the past 10 years, Kier has delivered more than £5billion of educational facilities for more than 163,000 pupils.

Earlier this month, Kier handed over the new headquarters for Ecclesiastical Insurance in Brockworth.
