Construction News Image
Two projects led by national contractor Kier have ensured the firm leads the pack in this year's prestigious Construction News Awards.

The company has secured the highest number of shortlisted entries at the 2020 Awards thanks to its £253m new build resettlement prison project at Wellingborough and its work on Smart Motorways.

These projects were among entries from 160 construction businesses across 21 categories.

On top of this, Kier Regional Building's Jenna Bates and Kate Dybeck have also been recognised as 'Rising Stars'.
