Wootton Park School, Northampton

“The efforts of the team have been exceptional in trying to help and understand the needs of the project. This goes beyond the contract relationship. The value added assistance and support has been greatly appreciated.”

Northstowe Education Campus Phase 1, Cambridgeshire

“My experience with Kier, Principal Contractor, was exceptional. A structured approach to the project made it very easy for progress to be monitored. Having 2 weekly project reviews made it very easy to discuss variation to the original specification and also towards the end of the project these proved invaluable in ensuring any specialist areas were ready for the school’s external contractors to install equipment.”

“We wanted to write and say how much we have enjoyed working with the Kier team over the last three years on all three library building projects. Viv and I have been on a massive learning curve throughout this time having never built a library before and we thank you for your patience. We both have been delighted with the results of all three builds and library customers have also been very complementary on the improvement to the facilities.”

“Kier have delivered a great project and the LGS frame was quite a challenge and seemed impossible when first proposed. Turner & Townsend and Kier agreed the final account 4 weeks post PC which demonstrates a collaborative team effort on a project that had minimal change.”

Associate Director, Turner & Townsend

Eileen Ash Sports Hall

“We have been so pleased with this project,  we were very impressed the way in which you and your team have worked with us, the quality and speed of delivery. We have developed an excellent sports facility for the young people of Norwich.

I would certainly like to work with you and your team at Kier again in the future.”

“Just a brief note to say how impressed I was by the finished product at Gresham’s. Not having seen the building since well before it was completed, at the opening concert I was bowled over by how it looks, as well as how it sounds, of course.

The architectural design is terrific, with some lovely features in what from the plans seemed to be a very conventional building. I was particularly taken by the interior of the Cafeteria and by the unusually light, airy practice rooms. John Bowley, the Head of Music, said that he has not seen better practice rooms in any school, college or conservatoire in the UK. I have seen a lot of these and I am inclined to agree with him.”

“Kier were very responsive to our needs, in terms of lots of conversations when they wanted to make changes and about how those changes could be done in such a way that they didn’t affect us too adversely.”

Ian Morris

Headteacher, Highfield School

Sanger Sequencing Building

“The Kier team took time to understand our requirements, not only for the completed building, but also for the journey we took to get there. Kier have proved to be an excellent choice of contractor for this extremely complex and high profile project and I would not hesitate in recommending them.”

Duncan Parsley

Capital Projects Director, The Sanger Institute

Isle of Ely Primary School, Cambridgeshire

“I’ve felt really involved throughout the whole process, Kier were very open and honest, and it’s all been very transparent. For me as a Headteacher this was really valuable because it meant we had ownership of the building right from the start rather than just being given it.”

Bryony Surtees

Headteacher, Isle of Ely Primary School

Academy House, Cambridge

“Kier’s team performed very well in an extremely confined site, overcoming problems as they arose. They also handled the various stakeholders very smoothly and were good at keeping the building’s tenants, Astra Zeneca, happy – which, in turn, kept me happy.”

Stephen Walsh

Managing Director, UNEX Investment Properties Ltd

David Attenborough Building, Cambridge, Cambridgshire

“Kier were very accommodating, not only did they allow people to come in, appropriately kitted up and healthy and safety briefed and all the rest, which was very good. But actually somebody would accompany the group and explain why things were being done the way they were. That was actually one of the most interesting parts of working with Kier.”

Dr Mike Rands

Executive Director, Cambridge Conservation Initiative

Moy’s End Stand, Peterborough

“I found the staff who we dealt with to be friendly, straight-forward, efficient, good humoured – laughed at my jokes, that’s really important – I think Kier have done a very good job.”

Gareth Dawkins

Project Manager, Peterborough City Council

University of Cambridge, Sainsbury Laboratory

“The project seems simple, and this hides the fact that it was a hugely difficult building to achieve. The building uses fine materials expertly detailed; (its) profound sustainability is impressive, not only in terms of its excellent energy performance but also in terms of its long term flexibility and adaptability.”
