The line-up includes five major suppliers – Caledonian, Elliott, McAvoy, Portakabin and Wernick – supplemented with 18 SMEs.
The new ‘uber’ framework for modular buildings will operate for the next four years and has been carved into seven lots, including design and build of specialist education and healthcare modules as well as other public sector building.
It has been developed with a particular focus on education and healthcare, with Lots 1 to 4 focussing exclusively on these sectors over different value bands.
Lots 5 to 7 are for the supply of modular building solutions for all other sectors, including housing, defence and commercial and retail.
The Modular Building Solutions framework will supersede the existing Department for Education and Skills framework established last year.
John Welch, Deputy Director – Construction Services, said: “CCS is really pleased to be able to provide the public sector with such a comprehensive solution to their temporary building requirements.
“The current generation of modular buildings are solid, well insulated, and can be appropriately specified – providing a quick, safe and cost-effective answer to our customers’ needs.
“Although we have put education and healthcare sector customers at the forefront of our framework design this framework has been prepared to serve all aspects of central government and the wider public sector for their temporary and semi-permanent modular building requirements.”
