Kier Facilities Services has won a four-year framework agreement with Surrey County Council, worth more than £40 million.
The announcement comes as Kier Facilities Services is also confirmed by Sheffield City Council as preferred bidder for a seven-year corporate property and facilities management services contract valued at £55mill.
Under the Surrey contract Kier Facilities Services will be responsible for improvement works and round-the-clock maintenance cover for more than 900 buildings.
Surrey County Council’s framework agreement includes mechanical, electrical and buildings fabric work plus 24-hour emergency call-outs, covering schools and educational buildings, council offices and community buildings, leisure centres, emergency services, libraries and museums.
Ian Lake, Surrey County Council’s executive member for support services, said: “With over 900 buildings involved, including schools, the professional skills and trades delivered by Kier’s local workforces will be of great benefit to Surrey.”
Kier Facilities Services operations director Rob Baker said: “As well as extending the geographic spread of our capabilities, this agreement strengthens our commitment to providing high levels of service to local authorities in the southern region. It is also a significant boost for our locally-based workforce and contractors, securing further work at a critical time for the construction industry.”
Other local authorities served by Kier Facilities Services include Hampshire, Cornwall and Hertfordshire county councils, Portsmouth City Council and West Berkshire District Council.
