New contracts move Kier back to top of table

Kier topped the list of construction contracts for November to reclaim its place at the top of the annual table.

And the construction and infrastructure services firm, which has a regional base in Gloucester and is involved in major projects across the county, has appointed a new managing director for its Midlands division.

Kier secured 27 contracts during November, a major deal at the Sellafield nuclear site helping it move to the top of the monthly table compiled by insight company Glenigan for the first time since May.

The £237.4million worth of contracts took Kier back to the top of the rolling 12 month table above Morgan Sindall with 82 contracts worth more than £1.7billion.

Kier Construction has also named Chris Stevens, previously managing director at Bouygues UK as managing director for its new Midlands region and performance excellence from January.

Group managing director Liam Cummins said: "This new role will accelerate the implementation of our Construction strategy with a specific focus on growing our business in the Midlands as well as implementing our performance excellence agenda, which underpins our successful operational delivery to clients and partners."
