The firm will now have two business streams, Transportation, and Natural Resources, Nuclear & Networks.
Its current Highways, Utilities and Infrastructure business streams will transition into the new proposed streams.
Restructure will take effect on 1 July.
Kier will continue to report under its three divisions:
- Infrastructure services.
The restructuring aligns with growth ambitions for the firm in designing and building operational phases of projects.
This business will support the movement of people, goods and equipment by land, sea and air.
Operations will include:
- The design, build and maintenance proposition for existing highways and major projects business.
- Taking over the rail, airports infrastructure and ports sectors.
Natural Resources, Nuclear & Networks
This business aims to tackle the following:
- Water management.
- Energy generation.
- Infrastructure assets.
- Network distribution of essential services.
Transportation will assume the firm’s role in EKFB, a joint venture with Eiffage, Ferrovial Construction, and BAM Nuttall.
The JV is working on a 346m-long viaduct in Buckinghamshire for HS2.
Kier is also working with Balfour Beatty, Costain, and Keltbray on the £1.3 billion A66 Northern Trans-Pennine project, which involves upgrading the more than 50-mile road.
With energy generation, Kier is switching to using battery storage units (BSU) alongside generators.
This change aims to save fuel and reduce costs and carbon emissions.
The new teams will be led by:
- Joe Incutti, currently Group managing director of Kier Highways, will lead Transportation.
- Andrew Bradshaw, currently managing director of Utilities, will lead Natural Resources, Nuclear and Networks.
- Ross Mackenzie, interim managing director of Kier Infrastructure, will be the managing director of Natural Resources and Nuclear.
“The realignment in our Infrastructure Services business is a critical step in supporting the execution of the Group’s medium-term value creation plan and enabling us to respond proactively to client needs in the key markets in which we operate,” said Andrew Davies, chief executive of Kier Group.
Kier Group were approached for further comment.
