Kier Utilities, a subsidiary of the Kier Group, has been awarded a position on the five-year £750M AMP7 Complex Civils Framework for Yorkshire Water, allowing them to gain appointment to utilities maintenance contracts across one of the largest regions in England.
The company’s admission onto the framework began in September and will include the option of a three-year extension, making the framework contract potentially three years in length.
Under the contract, Kier will gain appointment to projects entailing civil and structural engineering as well as construction and refurbishment works on above and below ground assets such as operational treatment facilities, collection facilities, distribution facilities, process treatment structures, and water retaining structures.
The Group Managing Director at Kier Utilities, Barry McNicholas stated: “We are delighted to have been awarded a place on the Yorkshire Water framework particularly as this is a new client for Kier Utilities.
“This award builds on our recent award on the five-year Severn Trent framework, a client where we have a long partnership. Such awards provide visibility and stability to our order book and with the AMP7 well underway, we anticipate further awards in the coming months.”
Kier’s appointment to this framework also follows their appointment to Lots Two and Three of the five-year £2Bn Severn Trent Water AMP7 framework entailing capital construction projects across the Midlands.
The Head of Programme Delivery at Yorkshire Water, Mark Baker added: “We are excited to see the conclusion of this process and welcome our partners to support our ambitions and challenges into AMP7. They will assist in the formation of a truly collaborative, innovative and efficient delivery vehicle to help meet our Enterprise delivery model aspirations.
“The alignment of our objectives and a Programme First approach is a new direction for Yorkshire Water and we are confident that our partners can support this ambition.”
