Kier has started on the site of A £5M new-build crematorium project in Hinckley, for client Hinckley and Bosworth Borough Council. The project was secured via the Procure Partnerships East Midlands Framework.
This project will include a ceremonial hall for multi-faith services, a crematory hall to hold the cremation plant and equipment with additional admin/office building. The external works includes memorial gardens, covered walkways, new roads and car park as well as forming a new access to the site from the A47. Kier is working with the council’s in-house landscaping division to complete the soft landscaping and planting scheme.
The project is due to be handed over in early 2022.
Martin Williamson, Operations Manager, at Kier Regional Building North & Scotland, commented: “We are delighted to be working with Hinckley & Bosworth Borough Council on this state-of-the-art facility. The project draws on our extensive experience of delivering projects within this sector.”
