Kier has been reappointed to the Essex construction framework, which has a combined value of between £35m to £50m per annum across three lots
Kier secured a place on lot 2 for projects valued between £1-4.5m and lot 3 for projects exceeding £4m on the Essex construction framework.
The framework will oversee the procurement of a range of new build and refurbishment schemes across the education sector.
The previous framework
Kier was awarded both the first project and the largest project on the framework. White Bridge Primary School in Loughton, a £2.5m project consisting of nine classroom extension and refurbishment of three existing classrooms, was completed in December 2017.
Beaulieu Park School in Chelmsford, a £31m project delivering a primary and secondary school, sports facilities and associated external works, was completed in February 2019. In February 2020, Kier was appointed to the final job on the previous framework.
It was selected to deliver Wickford Pupil Referral Unit, a £5m project delivering specialist services for 25 primary school children and 75 secondary school children.
Mark Dady, managing director at Kier Regional Building Eastern, said: “We’re very pleased to have been successfully reappointed to the Essex construction framework. We look forward to continuing to work closely with Essex County Council to deliver projects procured through the framework.”
The four-year Essex construction framework will begin work in March 2020 and finish in March 2024.
