Kier delivers adult day care centre

Kier has delivered its 1000th Scape Minor Works Project, through the Scape National Minor Works framework, to Flintshire County Council with the contracting of the Flintshire Adult Day Care Centre.

The centre will provide state-of-the-art day care facilities and social care services for vulnerable adults with differing levels of learning disabilities after having been designed with recommendations from service users, users relatives, and staff following the previous centre’s descent into disrepair.

The Frameworks Director at Kier, Deane Hudson stated: “We’re thrilled to have handed over our 1000th Scape Minor Works project. The Flintshire Adult Day Care Centre will provide much-needed support to vulnerable adults in the area.”

“We are proud to partner with Scape Group and continue to deliver value for money projects ranging from £50k to £4m for our public sector clients across the UK.”

In the coming months Kier is set to deliver 80 projects under the Scape National Minor Works framework, with some of these works including the new MRI facility at St Richard’s Hospital in Worthington, the five new primary school extensions for Oxford County Council which will provide a further 500 pupil places, and the two new business enterprise centres for Somerset County Council.

The Scape Group Chief Executive, Mark Robinson added, “We are very proud of the number of successful projects delivered via our National Minor Works frameworks.

“The 1,000th project is a real milestone for both Kier and Scape Group and I am very pleased that the Flintshire Adult Day Care Centre will give vulnerable adults access to opportunities that would not have been afforded to them without the new facility.

“Scape’s Minor Works framework continues to deliver exceptional project outcomes whilst embedding social value at the heart, we recognise the importance of engaging with local communities to create sustainable socio-economic outcomes that last way beyond the projects’ completion.”

Kier was appointed to the first-generation Scape Minor Works framework back in 2011 and eventually became a delivery partner on the second-generation of the framework, which expires one decade after Kier joined the first generation in 2021.

During the second-generation of the framework Kier has raised a sum of more than £350M in SME social value and has provide more than 550 jobs.
