Furthermore, Kier states they charge Third-Parties by use of CECA-derived rates*.  However, the Civil Engineering Contractors Association does not recognize the rates that display their logo (read CECA’s comment here), and the rates are to be used as a benchmark, not ‘as is’, without agreement between parties – as described by CECA here.
