Delivering on a national scale

Kier is the UK's leading provider of school buildings, delivering over £5 billion worth of educational facilities in the last decade. Together with designing and building schools for early years, primary and secondary education, we also have the capability to maintain and provide back of house services to schools and colleges across the country. We have significant experience within the Higher Education and Universities construction market and our property division is an investor, developer, partner and provider within the student accommodation market.

Supporting learning

We have decades of experience supporting the education sector working with schools, colleges and universities to create a first-class educational environment by building and maintaining first class facilities.

Many of the schemes we undertake are carried out within fully operational ‘live’ environments, this means we need to ensure that our works are carried out with the minimum of impact on the day to day life of the school or college. Our teams are fully DBS checked and fully understand the safety, health and environmental implications of working within these environments and will work with the stakeholders and end users where possible to phase works around the examination timetable and to ensure deliveries are not made during drop off and pick up times.

Technology and innovation

Across all our work, we enhance delivery by making extensive use of 3D and Building Information Modelling (BIM) related technologies which help to reduce through life costs, take account of ongoing maintenance and future changes and help bring to life proposals so that clients and stakeholders can visualise the end results. Our in-house team of specialists provide ICT infrastructure design to schools as part of new build and refurbishment projects.

Facilities management

We provide a full range of facilities management services to ensure that buildings through the educational estate receive ongoing repairs and maintenance together with and essential services such as cleaning, security and grounds maintenance.

Our Projects >

" The new St. Hilda’s School will provide a tremendous boost for thousands of present and future generations of school children and ensure they get the most out of their learning. The team has ensured that this process has begun from the earliest stages. Kier has worked diligently in delivering this complex project on a very tight site, located very close to a live school and two blocks of residential flats. They have delivered on time and budget and have exceeded our expectations from the start to finish. "
