DIF Infrastructure II and Kier close financing for London fire PFI

🕔 August 14, 2013
US$3 billion final close for Macquarie Super Core Infrastucture Fund Series 1

On 1 August 2013, Blue 3, a consortium comprising DIF Infrastructure II and Kier as co-investors, reached financial close to design, build and maintain nine new community fire stations in South-East and East London on behalf of London Fire Brigade.

DIF has a 50% equity stake in the project. The government is providing £52m funding under the private finance initiative and Blue 3's contract will run for 28 years.

The fire stations will be built and maintained by Kier and handed over between September 2013 and February 2016. Stations at Purley, Dockhead, Old Kent Road, Mitcham, Dagenham, Leytonstone, Plaistow, Orpington and Shadwell will replace the current fire stations on the same site as the existing facilities which were built up to 100 years ago.

These new fire stations will deliver the quality and flexibility of accommodation needed to support a 21st century fire service, and facilitate fire prevention work through the provision of publicly accessible buildings with community engagement at its heart.

BDP has designed the project.
