KierWSP- the joint venture

KierWSP combines the strengths of Kier*, a specialist provider of public and private sector services and WSP, the design, engineering and management consultancy, to deliver integrated, tailored solutions to clients for a rapidly changing environment

* (formerly May Gurney). Following the Group’s acquisition of May Gurney in 2013, Kier Group is now one of the UK’s leading integrated services and construction groups. The combined business offers more opportunity for our customers, our people and our supply chain.

By bringing  together expertise from our complementary companies, we offer a wide ranging service that cannot be matched focusing on providing added value services to Local Government.

Kier Group plc is a leading property, residential, construction and services group which invests in, builds, maintains and renews the places where we work, live and play. We operate across a range of sectors including defence, education, housing, industrials, power, transport and utilities.

Kier Services, part of the Kier Group, is a specialist provider of public and private sector services, providing both single services and multi-disciplinary outsourcing throughout the UK.

We deliver a range of services from strategic asset management, planned and reactive housing maintenance, facilities management and environmental services including street and grounds maintenance, refuse collection and recycling to highways maintenance, street lighting, fleet services, waterways, as well as energy solutions.

Our preferred approach is to develop long-term relationships and work collaboratively with their clients and their communities to create innovative solutions for service delivery.

This approach provides opportunities to win new long-term contracts and to develop wider services with existing clients across the UK.

As a result of the acquisitions they have made, we have widened the scope of the Group’s growth opportunities and remain focused on their plans to build on this and continue to seek further acquisitions.

Kier believe that their strong balance sheet and excellent cash generations position Kier very well for continuing growth.  Kier  remain confident about our short and longer term prospects.

Operating across a range of sectors including defence, education, housing, industrial, power, transport and utilities we employ over 21,000 people across our operations in the UK, the Caribbean, the Middle East, Australia and Hong Kong.

We want our people to flourish at Kier and are committed to their professional and personal development and, through our values, ensuring that Kier is the best place to work.
