Kier seeks Lincs subbies
Main contractor Kier is holding an open day in Lincoln next week to find local subcontractors and suppliers for a five to 10 year programme of local housing improvement works.
Kier is currently bidding on a new partnering contract for Procurement Lincolnshire. The initial work will cover kitchens, bathrooms, roofing, chimneys, structural works, window and door replacement, insulation loft and cavity wall, decent homes modernisation, disabled adaptations, rewiring and electricals, environmental improvements, pre-paint repairs and decorating on almost 8,000 houses.
Kier is looking to build a register of local subcontractors. The Constructionline ‘Meet the Buyer’ event is on Thursday 26 July 2012, between 8.30am and 1.00pm, at The Think Tank, Ruston Way, Lincoln.
Constructionline sales manager Rebecca Sperti said: “It can prove difficult for local contractors to have the opportunity to get involved with projects of this size. It is great to see a major contractor like Kier sourcing local sub-contractors to help them deliver this project. These events are at the heart of what we do – we want to help suppliers find and secure work and we want to make it easier for businesses to find reliable and local construction companies.”
