Kier are pleased to announce that it has been appointed to the £10.5 billion NHS Shared Business Services public sector construction framework.
The framework is for use by NHS and all public sector organisations within the UK to procure for building and construction works. This includes demolition, upgrades and refurbishment projects, as well as design and build schemes.
The framework consists of five lots. Kier has been appointed to Lot 4, for projects ranging between £15 million and £35 million throughout the UK and Lot 3, for projects that are worth £5 million – £15 million in the South West, South East, London, Eastern England, West Midlands, East Midlands, North West, Yorkshire & North Lincolnshire, North East, Wales, and Scotland.
NHS Shared Business Services was established by the Department for Health and Social Care (DHSC) in 2005 and is a joint venture between the DHSC and Sopra Steria. This new framework is set to run for an initial three years, with there being a possibility to be extended for a further four years. This framework also requires all partners to have a focus on collaboration, modern methods of construction (MMC), sustainability and social value.
Liam Cummins, Group Managing Director for Kier Construction, said: “I am delighted that we have been appointed to another public sector framework, where we can utilise our sector leading experience and knowledge in health, education, justice and defence, to support the delivery of vital new infrastructure for clients and communities across the UK.”
