Kier has secured its place on the latest Suffolk Construction Framework.

The £750m framework has four value banded lots and is owned by Suffolk County. It will be open to public sector bodies across the East of England for public sector building works and will oversee the procurement of a range of new build and refurbishment schemes across education, health and community buildings.


Kier was named on Lot 3 (projects from £2.75m to £10m) and Lot 4 (projects valued over £8m).

Mark Dady, managing director at Kier, commented: "We're thrilled to have been awarded a place on two Lots of the Suffolk Construction Framework. Our capabilities across the region have seen us deliver a large number of schools, healthcare facilities and various other key public sector buildings.

"The framework will streamline the procurement process for public sector bodies in the East of England, allowing us to deliver projects that communities across the region can benefit from."

The four-year framework commenced on 01 June 2019.
