Kier has been reappointed to the £1bn South and Mid Wales Collaborative Construction Framework (SEWSCAP), scoring top marks in all 10 lots it bid for, with project values ranging from £250k-£100m.
The third iteration of the collaborative framework commenced in May 2019 and will run for four years. 13 local authorities are named as participating authorities in the framework, but it is open to all public sector organisations in Wales for the construction of schools and other public buildings.
Key to the success of the SEWSCAP frameworks is the options for a flexible approach for clients, whilst support being available at all times; including online guidance documents; legal advice; and the opportunity to take part in various working groups.
Commenting on the award, Anthony Irving, managing director of Kier Regional Building Western and Wales said: “We are delighted to have been appointed on the renewal of the SEWSCAP Framework.
“I am extremely proud of the team’s performance in achieving first place on each of the lots. This is testament to the dedication and commitment of our pre-construction and operational team. We have completed a number of high-profile projects across the region under the previous phases of this framework and we look forward to continuing to work with our partners to deliver much needed projects in South and Mid Wales.”
This reappointment for Kier further reinforces its position on the SEWSCAP framework, having previously delivered six successful projects procured through it including Eastern Leisure Centre in Llanrumney and Coleg y Cymoedd Aberdare Campus, with a further four contracts currently ongoing.
