Local Government fast facts

Delivering value

From leisure facilities to schools, roads to housing maintenance, ancient monuments to visitor centres - local government provides many of the vital services at the heart of the communities where we live and work.

The reduction in central government funding and increased pressure on local authorities to do more for less while continuing to meet the needs of their local communities, is a serious and significant challenge across the country. With our specialist knowledge, sector leading experience and fresh thinking, we are working with councils the length and breadth of the UK.

A range of expertise

We advise councils on how they might get maximum value from their estate, through the rationalisation of their property portfolio, and are designing, building and maintaining new facilities to better match the needs of their local populations.

Our range of services includes highways maintenance, housing maintenance, facilities management, street lighting and refuse collection, all helping to reduce costs through value-for-money solutions, innovation and improved efficiency.

A local approach

We are the country’s largest regional building contractor with a truly localised business structure. Our strategy is to employ local people in our teams, maintain local supply chains and to channel value back into the communities where we operate.

We take seriously the need to encourage talent through employment, training and career development opportunities. This includes specific outreach programmes supporting veterans, NEETs (young people not in education, employment or training), together with those taking their first step on the career ladder through apprenticeships or graduate schemes.

" Kier and the team they formed joined us at brief preparation stage and worked in partnership with all our Users to develop a Lifestyle Centre. The site for the building was a constrained town centre site and their skills and team working was essential in creating a solution to meet our Users diverse needs and create an integrated and flexible asset.
