Kier, a leading provider of construction and infrastructure services, has been awarded a place on three out of four Lots of the Cambridgeshire County Council Design & Build Contractor Framework, the maximum number of Lots a contractor could bid for.

This is the fourth time that Kier has secured a place on this framework which will run for three years, with an option for a one-year extension. In the three previous iterations of the framework, Kier has completed over £200m of schemes including award-winning Northstowe Education Campus, Fulbourn Primary School and New Road Primary School.

Works will involve design-and-build services for education capital projects, but could also include adult social care, offices, community and public buildings. It will cover new build, demolitions, capital replacements, extensions, repairs and renovation programmes.

Mark Dady, managing director at Kier Eastern & Midlands, said: "We're extremely pleased to have secured a place on all three lots we entered of Cambridgeshire County Council's framework, which will deliver a large number of public sector schemes over the next three years.

“This award is testament to the high-quality work we've delivered in collaboration with Cambridgeshire County Council on previous iterations of this framework and it further strengthens our presence in the region. We're looking forward to continuing our relationship to provide vital buildings for the community."

Cambridgeshire County Council commented: “Cambridgeshire County Council are thrilled to be working with Kier on this framework. The projects delivered will provide much needed infrastructure in Cambridgeshire to support our corporate outcomes. Following a process compliant with Public Contracts Regulations (PCR) 2015, and advertised on the Find A Tender (FTS) Service, Kier has demonstrated a mutual understanding of these outcomes, and an excellent track record of project delivery.”
