Kier Consortium has been selected for Stoke on Trent & Staffordshire Fire Authority contract.
A Kier consortium has been selected by Stoke-on-Trent and Staffordshire Fire Authority as preferred bidder in a £50m PFI contract to build and maintain 11 new community fire stations across Staffordshire.
As part of the deal, Kier will provide hard and soft facilities management and community support services over a 25-year period with a total estimated value in excess of £17m.
The successful blue3 consortium involved Kier and architects Calderpeel Partnership Limited. Construction work is expected to start in early 2013 and all fire stations are expected to be complete by the end of 2015.
Kier has a successful track record of working with the emergency, ‘blue light’ sector. In May blue3 was selected to deliver the design, build, financing and maintenance of nine fire stations on behalf of the London Fire Brigade.
The business also provides FM services to Sussex, Devon & Cornwall and Avon & Somerset Police Forces.
