Kier and the supply chain
More than 80% of the Kier supply chain is made up of SMEs.
These partners are integral to the success of the business.
Collective values and shared ways of working
We engage with the very best subcontractors and suppliers.
These are teams we can confidently rely on day-in, day-out, across the breadth of our operations.
Most important to us is that supply chain partners share our ways of working.
They align with our values, aspirations and culture, especially when it comes to safety, innovation, valuing people, getting involved in local communities and meeting client’s expectations.
" When we work with Kier, we know that they will do what they say, especially when it comes to safety. "Regional Director, NG Bailey Supporting Kier on the Crossrail project
How we innovate
Building great long-term relationships
Successful collaboration with our supply chain is at the heart of our business. By learning together we create an environment which supports innovation and improves productivity.
By listening to our supply chain, we gain a perspective beyond our existing networks. They introduce us to best practise from different industries.
Creating social value
New sports facilities and regeneration in Liverpool
In one Liverpool’s most deprived neighbourhoods, a regeneration project and new sports facility resulted in a total spend with SMEs of £15m, equivalent to £40m of local economic benefit. Liverpool Park Life II also involved several partnerships with homeless charities and young people, as well as increased employment opportunities in the area.
Additional social value
University research facility in Cambridge
The design and build of a research facility at the University of Cambridge, delivered through innovative off-site fabrication, produced a project spent of £66m in the supply chain, of which £30m was in the local area. Using a recognised method to calculate social value, this equated to a benefit of £80m.
