Offsite Suppliers Appointed to £330m Framework

6th July, 2021

Seventeen offsite manufacturers have won places on a new £330million public sector framework. The Modular Buildings (MB2) framework from LHC allows local authorities, social landlords and other public bodies to source preapproved specialist suppliers who can design, supply and install permanent, temporary, and refurbished modular buildings.

The framework is worth up to £250million in England, £60million in Scotland and £20million in Wales. It primarily covers education, healthcare, emergency services, offices and community related amenities such as sport facilities and theatres, but it can also be used for residential projects that are part of a mixed-use development or for student accommodation.

Dean Fazackerley, Head of Technical Procurement, said: “This framework provides contracting authorities with a pool of pre-approved suppliers who have won their place on the MB2 framework based primarily on the high quality of their work, but also the long-term value they can deliver. The consistent quality that modular building offers can help to not only provide more efficient projects that have lower lifetime costs, but can also help local authorities, NHS trusts and other public bodies work towards their net zero targets by providing better fabric performance.

Commenting on its framework appointment, David Harris, Managing Director of Premier Modular, added: “The framework allows public sector construction clients to radically reduce the time and cost of procurement, with the additional benefits of instant access to project data, guaranteed service levels, best value pricing, and faster project commencement. Our success in so many lots and geographical regions on this prestigious and long-established framework highlights the scope, quality and diversity of our hire buildings and offsite construction solutions for public sector clients across the UK.”

LHC are looking forward to working with the Appointed Companies to deliver outcome-based solutions which deliver social value and community benefit for our clients in line with LHC’s Lifetime Values.”
