Kier wins £10M of new airports work

Kier Airports has secured a £10M programme for improvement and refurbishment schemes at Heathrow airport.

After being appointed as one of the five contractors to handle BAA’s Commodity Build programme, worth £650m over five years, Kier Airports has now secured an agreement covering smaller projects at Heathrow. Known as a Local Projects Integrator (LPI), this involves handling an annual £10m programme for improvement and refurbishment schemes.

Kier’s Commodity Build framework agreement includes Heathrow, Gatwick, Stansted, Southampton, Aberdeen, Glasgow and Edinburgh airports for projects such as car parks, asset renewals and refurbishment schemes up to a value of £30m each.

Under LPI, Kier has now been allocated a portfolio of projects worth up to £2m each, with the first scheme - upgrading the façade of Terminal One - expected to proceed within the next month.

To handle the anticipated workload, Kier has opened a new office to carry out all of its framework operations at Heathrow.

Kier’s BAA framework manager, Charlie Nicholas, said: “Kier is very pleased to have been selected for the exciting Commodity Build and LPI Frameworks. With our regional resources and expertise we are well placed to help BAA successfully develop its airports and achieve its strategic aims.’’
