The Crown Commercial Service (CCS) has chosen the 24 suppliers for its newly-launched £1.2bn Modular Buildings Solutions framework

The Modular Building Solutions framework provides the public sector with a simple, low-cost way to address their modular building requirements.

The framework offers an alternative to traditionally built accommodation and public sector customers will be able to buy or lease modular buildings designed and fabricated to their particular specification.

A total of 24 suppliers have been awarded across 7 lots. Lots 1 to 4 focus on the education and healthcare sectors while lots 5 to 7 are for all other sectors, including housing, defence, commercial and retail.

The Modular Buildings Solutions framework runs until the end of March 2023.

Commenting on the Modular Buildings Solutions framework award, Integra Buildings, managing director Gary Parker, said: “The Government is making a very serious commitment to modular building and being named on the framework is massive for us.

“At a time when all businesses are having to deal with uncertainty, this will give us the confidence to create new jobs and invest in our people and facilities because of the potential value of the work.

“We’ve already taken on three more people in the past three weeks and we’re currently recruiting for new technical staff to help us remain at the forefront of innovation. We’re confident that more new jobs will follow, supported by projects through this framework.

“We’re also planning a major investment of up to £1m in our in-house manufacturing capability, including upgrading our pure steel manufacturing facility, which will make the business more self-sufficient. That’s on top of the £3m we have invested on this site over the past 18 months.

“In our fast-growing industry, it’s vital to keep investing in people and technology, so being a part of this framework will help us to secure the long-term future of the business.

“It’s also a great opportunity for our suppliers. 90% of them are based within 30 miles of our site, so by securing a pipeline of work, we’ll broaden and deepen our supply chain and give other local firms a chance to grow.”
