The property and construction group Kier have been appointed to a scheme by the Braintree District Council in Essex for the regeneration of Manor Street in Braintree Town Centre, at a cost of £30M.
The Manor Street regeneration scheme will entail the delivery of 35 homes, a ‘Livewell’ hub, a pharmacy, a 70-bed Travelodge, a new bus interchange, a café/restaurant overlooking a new public realm, and a twin-level car park.
Construction on the regeneration scheme will commence in early 2020 and will continue until its completion which is scheduled for some time in 2022.
The Managing Director at Kier Regional Building Eastern, Mark Dady stated: “We are specialists in delivering key projects for local authorities nationwide.
“We work extremely hard to leave a positive footprint on the areas we work in and throughout this project we will be committed to engaging with the local community and working closely with local subcontractors to create a range of job opportunities for those living in the area.
“I am looking forward to working closely with Braintree District Council to deliver this vital project for the people of Braintree.”
The Cabinet Member for Corporate Transformation at Braintree District Council, Councillor John McKee added: “Without our investment as a local authority, these improvements to health facilities, the bus station and town centre would just not happen.
“We see this regeneration as the catalyst for change – bringing more people, new businesses and more jobs in to our wonderful town. It is the beginning of an exciting transformation which we believe will encourage other businesses and services to set up home in our town in the future.”
Another mixed use development which Kier has recently been appointed to deliver includes the Reading Gateway scheme which entailed the construction of a Premier Inn hotel, retail units, and a car dealership.
