Race starts for £10bn Government offsite framework

Aaron Morby 2 years ago

The Crown Commercial Service has started tendering for a mega offsite construction framework for all Government departments.

Its new pan-Government collaborative Offsite Construction Solutions framework deal is expected to be worth up to £10bn as more projects swing over to modular designs in the drive to cut costs.

Offsite Construction Solutions will replace the existing £500m modular building solutions agreement secured four years ago by five major suppliers – Caledonian, Elliott, McAvoy, Portakabin and Wernick – and a further 18 smaller-scale players.

The CCS intends to host a bidders day following the launch of the procurement contest that will take place at 11am on 1st September.

This event will detail of the new structure framework and its multi-lot structure covering the built estate including education, health, justice and defence.
