The project, worth in excess of £15m and procured through the Southern Construction Framework, will see Kier develop a design for a multi-purpose 3-storey building including two GP surgeries serving around 17,500 patients, a pharmacy, office space and parking.
The project, which is due to complete in early 2021, will see Kier deliver a number of training and development opportunities, including nine apprenticeships,17 work placements and 11 new job creations.
Andy Bolas, Gloucester office operations director at Kier Regional Building Central, said: “We are delighted to have been appointed to deliver Quayside House.
“This achievement builds on our existing relationship working on the Gloucestershire County Council Framework where we have successfully completely over 50 projects in the past 15 years.”
This latest award win for Kier follows on from its appointment by Gloucester County Council to reclad Shire Hall, its Gloucester City Centre offices.
This project, which sits adjacent to the new Quayside house development, marks the first step in the wider regeneration of the Blackfriars area.
