The contractor Kier has been delivering network maintenance services for Bristol Water since June 2013, when it competitively won the emergency contract after the previous provider went into administration.

The new deal comprises repairs and maintenance, metering, new connections, developer mains, trunk mains support and small diameter mains rehabilitation.

Kier said this latest contract win further demonstrates its position as a major player in the water and utilities industries following its acquisition of May Gurney in July 2013.

Toby Harding, Kier’s operations director for utilities in the South, said: “We are delighted to have been selected as sole provider of Bristol Water’s network maintenance services programme. Our forward-thinking approach to safety, health and environment; quality and customer service is closely aligned with Bristol Water, and we look forward to working closely with them to ensure the continued success of the programme.”

Gary Freake, Bristol Water director of network, commented: “Kier brings a wealth of experience not only in water, but also from the wider utility and construction sectors, and is delivering similar services to other water companies. Over the recent turbulent period, since our previous service provider went into administration, Kier have proven themselves, through their consistent performance and positive behaviours, to be a valuable partner to Bristol Water and one we are looking forward to working with in the years to come.”
