Kier has been appointed to the third generation of North West Construction Hub’s Medium Value Construction Framework worth an estimated £250m-1bn. The framework is for projects valued between £2-10m and is split into 5 sub regional and 1 regional lots. Kier has been appointed to each of the four lots it bid for. Lots 3, 4 and 5 cover projects in Manchester, Merseyside and Cheshire that are worth between £2-5m and Lot 6 covers projects in the North West that are between £5,000,0001-10m.
The new framework will run for 3 years, with an option to extend for a further 1 year, and replaces the previous North West Construction Hub Medium Value Construction Framework which covered projects across the North West worth between £2-9m and saw Kier appointed on all 12 Lots.
Peter Commins, managing director at Kier Regional Building North West, said: “Frameworks are hugely important for the Kier Regional Building business and I am pleased that we have been appointed to 4 Lots of this integral North West framework. We look forward to continuing to deliver projects under this framework and delivering high quality construction projects for the communities we work in.
“The framework provides a great route for procurement for clients in the North West and Kier has previously delivered 31 projects under NWCH frameworks, including Heron House Office refurbishment and FA Parklife, which was recently awarded Project of the Year at this year’s North West Regional Construction Awards.”
Under the previous iteration of the North West Construction Hub Medium Value Construction Framework, Kier also delivered Huntington Primary School, a new-build, two-storey, 420-place primary school and 26-place nursery in Chester. The project recently won the sub-regional project of the year award at the North West Regional Construction Awards 2019.
