Kier appointed to deliver next Phase of Leicestershire scheme Everards Meadows

Kier has been appointed to deliver the £13.2m Everards Meadows Phase 1B. This appointment follows on from Phase 1A and an initial enabling contract with a combined project value of £26.65m.

The works form part of the Everards Meadows development based next to Fosse Shopping Park, Leicestershire. The completed site will bring Everards brewing facilities and offices to the new location, whilst also creating public spaces including a beer hall and brewery experience.

As part of Phase 1B, Kier is constructing 862m² of new office accommodation, 1454m² of brewery floor area and 1054m² of retail, food and drink space. Works are due to be completed in late summer 2020.

Phase 1A, which opens July 2019, consisted of the construction of a cycle centre, a café, a new pedestrian/cycle bridge over the River Soar connected by over 3km of cycle ways, carparking facilities and landscaping.

Mark Pausey, Managing Director, Kier Regional Building Central, said: “We’re thrilled to have been awarded the next Phase of this exciting project which will continue to develop our strong relationship with Everards.

“Everards has a deep-rooted heritage in Leicestershire and it is a privilege to construct its new home where it will continue brewing great quality beer as well as bringing a unique experience to its visitors.”

Stephen Gould, Managing Director, Everards of Leicestershire adds: “We’ve been working with Kier on this development since 2017 and have been really impressed with not only its work but also its approach and connection to our local community.

“There is strong trust and confidence which has been built up between the Everards and Kier teams and we certainly look forward to continuing this beneficial and collaborative approach throughout the build of our new home for the next generation of our family business.”
