Kier Construction Scotland, part of Kier Group plc, has reported a turnover in excess of £150m per annum for the latest year.

The property, residential, construction and services group employs over 200 people from its offices in Glasgow, Aberdeen, Inverness and Newcastle.

Parent company Kier Group plc reported £4.2bn revenue, up 26% on 2015 with underlying profits before tax of £150m, up 44% on 2015. The group has a strong oder book of £8.7bn.

Commenting on the results, Brian McQuade, managing director of Kier Construction Scotland, said:

“We have a solid pipeline of work, largely from our partnership on a number of significant health and education frameworks. Most recently we have become a partner on the £125m Aberdeenshire Council Capital Works Framework, been reappointed to deliver over £25m of minor works projects as part of the £1.5bn Scape National Minor Works Framework and are providing building works as part of Glasgow Airport’s framework over the next three years.

“In Scotland we are delivering major build projects across education, healthcare, commercial and retail sectors. We are also working on an exciting range of heritage projects, restoring some of the country’s most important landmarks for future generations to enjoy. Notably, we are managing the £25m restoration of the fire damaged, world-renowned Mackintosh Building for Glasgow School of Art, where we are combining ancient heritage skills with modern engineering expertise.

“We are also working with the Edinburgh College of Art to refurbish its Grade A-listed sandstone building in Lauriston Place in a £14m project – another scheme which has both local and international importance. Next month, work begins on the £6.7m contract to carry out restoration, redevelopment and upgrade work at one of Scotland’s oldest and most historic concert halls – the A-listed Aberdeen Music Hall.”
