Winner for Stoke fire PFI

25 July 2012 Stoke and Staffordshire Fire Authority has announced the preferred bidder for its second PFI programme.
The Blue3 consortium, led by contractor Kier, has won the £50m contract to build and maintain 11 new community fire stations across Staffordshire.

Under the terms of the deal, Kier will provide hard and soft facilities management and community support services over a 25-year period.

“We were selected as a result of the business’ strong track record in delivering similar projects and our ability to provide an overall solution that would give a continuity of service over the next 25 years,” said Kier’s business development director, Tony Devenish.

It follows the authority’s first PFI scheme, to provide 10 new bases for community fire and rescue activities, which was signed back in 2009.
