Kier has won a £25m housing maintenance job for the City of Lincoln Council.

The five-year scheme, covering 8,000 council homes, will run from April next year and could be extended to 2023.

The win for Kier follows the firm’s six-year partnering contract to deliver the Lincoln Decent Homes programme across the city.

The work includes window and door replacement; upgrading of kitchens and bathrooms; roofing and chimney repairs; structural works; loft and cavity walls insulation; Decent Homes modernisation; disabled adaptations; rewiring and electrical work; environmental improvements; and pre-paint repairs and decorating. 

Kier regional managing director, Simon Bullen, said: “We have successfully been awarded this contract based on the merit of our work in Lincoln over the last seven years and our reputation as a high quality service provider. We have developed a strong working relationship with the council and we look forward to progressing this into the future.”

Councillor Ric Metcalfe, the leader of the council, said: “As part of this contract Lincoln will be one of the first areas in the country to benefit from the new Kier+ scheme, which offers our tenants an improved service thanks to new technology, better business links and access to support around the clock.

“This partnership between Kier and the City Council will have many benefits to the city of Lincoln and its residents, particularly that local money will be used to benefit the local community.”
