Kier has landed £145m of construction contracts in the Middle East this month, the firm has announced.

In Dubai Kier has won a £100m mixed-use development and two infrastructure contracts totalling £15m on a planned major leisure park project, while in Saudi Arabia the firm has won a £30m infrastructure project for a Saudi state-owned company.

Kier did not disclose the names of the projects. Work on all of them is expected to commence this month.

Kier chief executive Haydn Mursell said: “These international awards are testimony to the strong relationships that we continue to develop with customers in the Middle East and the breadth of construction capability that we can offer customers in this market. These awards further emphasise our continuing strong order book.”
