When Liverpool City Council was faced with the prospect of losing its promised £350 million Building Schools for the Future programme it needed fresh thinking and an alternative approach.
The result was a pragmatic solution that meant as much money as possible could be kept in the local economy, delivering a large scale building programme on time and on budget and generating work with local contractors. Key to this was Kier, whose collaborative way of working and determination to meet the demands of the brief has enabled a huge amount of high quality construction to happen within a short timescale.
We were commissioned to make short films about the Liverpool Schools Investment Programme and also Kier’s work in primary schools on Merseyside under the SCAPE procurement framework, a national scheme designed to enable councils to get much needed work done more quickly and cost effectively, again relying on a collaborative, forward thinking approach.
Both films, shot over 3 days on our new Sony FS5 and edited in house were inspiring to work on and have been brilliantly received, reflecting the energetic, purposeful approach of Kier and the results that can be achieved through hard work, focus and carefully nurtured partnerships.
