Kier Services 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 first contract, awarded by Sheffield City Council and worth £9.8m over four years, will see Kier 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, as well as committing to a three working day target for getting the heating systems working and nine days for full completion.

The second Sheffield council contract, valued at £3.6m over three years, will see Kier deliver much-needed adaptations to vulnerable and elderly people 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 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 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.”

In March, Kier won a £102m contract to provide repairs and maintenance to Sheffield City Council tenants and around 2,200 leaseholders. The contract will run for the next three years, with an option to extend this term by a further two years.
