Kier Announces FM Division Restructure 
05 June 2024

The FM arm of Kier is to split into three separate business units.

Kier Places, the company’s FM business, will operate across three business streams: Building Solutions, Residential Solutions and Workplace Solutions. The Building Solutions arm will offer new service provision across the south coast, alongside its existing work in London and the north of England.

Jamie McKechnie, who was named as Managing Director of Kier Places in February 2023, said: “I’ve been in post for just over a year and as a business we continue to perform incredibly well. Our success in recent years has given us the platform to develop a long-term evidence-informed growth strategy, and we’re now implementing that at pace, including the introduction of our new business areas.

“An important part of our growth strategy has been about listening to our clients and finding out what they are really looking for. Our strength is in our ability to partner with our clients to develop solutions which protect the value of their assets whilst enhancing the end users’ experience and contribute to thriving communities.

“This a hugely exciting time at Kier Places and today we are making a bold statement of intent for what the next few years look like and the scale of our ambition. Watch this space!” 

Kier Places works with clients across the UK from sectors including housing associations, local authorities and healthcare. It was recently appointed to deliver FM services at a new cancer hospital in Cardiff, via its place on the ACORN consortium.
