CCS confirms modular solutions framework

03 April 2019

Designed with the education and healthcare sectors, Crown Commercial Service (CCS) has announced the launch of its Modular Building Solutions framework.

With 24 suppliers awarded contracts across seven lots, 19 of these are described as SME organisations, continuing the government's aim to include higher numbers of small companies in public sector work.

CCS describes modular buildings as an alternative to traditionally-built structures, which can be bought or leased on a temporary or semi-permanent basis and designed to individual specifications.

Lots 1 to 4 of the framework apply to the education and healthcare sectors, with Lots 5 to 7 include options for sectors including defence, commercial, retail and housing.

The buildings offer quicker supply, lower cost and the ability to match the need of specific purposes, usually including off-site construction and reducing disruption to clients' facilities.

Having established a wide range of construction services, in addition to its extensive FM contracts, CCS says the Modular Building Solutions framework will further extend these.

Construction Services deputy director John Welch said: "CCS is really pleased to be able to provide the public sector with such a comprehensive solution to their temporary building requirements."

The latest CCS framework has an estimated value of £495m over the next four years.
