Seventeen offsite manufacturers have been awarded places on a new £330m offsite framework from LHC.
The Modular Buildings (MB2) framework, which will run until May 2025, enables local authorities, social landlords and other public bodies to source pre-approved specialist suppliers who can design, supply and install permanent, temporary, and refurbished modular buildings.
The framework, which covers England, Scotland and Wales, 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.
“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,” said Dean Fazackerley, group procurement manager.
“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.
“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.”
