Kier has been awarded more than £13 million in new contracts to provide new heating systems and carry out adaptation works to homes across Sheffield.
The contracts, awarded by Sheffield City Council, will see Kier’s housing maintenance business maintain homes to a high standard and ensure adaptations are carried out for those who need it most.
The first contract, worth £9.8 million over four years, comprises installing radiators, boilers, piping and thermostats, as well as removing and repairing pre-existing systems.
Kier will also install new central heating systems in council homes where breakdowns have occurred, as well as in void properties across the city. .
As part of the contract, Kier will provide a tenant liaison officer to ensure the smooth running of the programme, and commit to a three working day target for getting the heating systems working and nine days for full completion.
The second contract, valued at £3.6 million over three years, will see Kier deliver adaptations to vulnerable and elderly people’s homes in the city. Kier will be installing wet floors and over-bath showers, as well as access ramps. Council houses will also have other adaptation works including door widening and the installation of handrails and handles.
Kier regional operations director, Phil Oades, said: “These new contracts underline the important work Kier is doing in Sheffield and recognise the quality of our work and the high level of customer satisfaction we deliver, as well as providing sustainable employment for our workforce in the city.
“We will continue to both work hard to maintain the high standards of all homes across Sheffield and work closely with tenants and the council to ensure these targets are met.”
