Kier Reappointed to £1.2 Billion Framework

Kier has been reappointed to the £1.2 billion hub South West Framework in Scotland.

The hub South West Framework covers Lanarkshire, Ayrshire and Dumfries and Galloway, and, over the next four years, the public/private partnership (PPP) will provide a collaborative vehicle for organisations throughout the South West of Scotland to procure community infrastructure across multiple sectors, including:

  • Education
  • Leisure
  • Health
  • Early years
  • Housing

Kier has been part of the framework since 2012 and has delivered £175 million worth of projects in that time, including the new Ayr Academy, Marr College and Cumbernauld Community Enterprise Development. Most recently, Kier has completed Queen Margaret Academy in Ayr, which was officially opened by Deputy First Minster of Scotland John Swinney In March 2020.

Gary Wintersgill, Managing Director for Kier Regional Building North & Scotland, stated: “We are delighted to have been reappointed to the hub South West framework, which remains fundamental to our growth plans in Scotland.

“We have a fantastic track record on this framework, working collaboratively with the hub South West team and local clients to deliver some first-rate projects. As we move in to the next iteration of this forward-thinking framework, we will continue to look at ways we can engage with local communities, to provide training and job opportunities, as we look to leave lasting legacies in areas within which we build.”

Michael McBrearty, Chief Executive, hub South West Scotland Ltd, added:

“As we look forward, hub South West will harness the opportunities that developing high-quality social infrastructure provides to secure, uniquely, real social impact and value for money through procurement, locality of the supply chain and by driving sustainability through our development and delivery.

“Our ability to deliver these objectives is best served we believe, by working in partnership with the highest quality contracting businesses in the country.

“We are delighted, therefore, to renew our relationship with Kier and look forward to continuing to deliver the best facilities and opportunities to our communities in the South West of Scotland.”
