Fusion21 has appointed nine contractors to its £225m national education modular buildings framework.
Aiken Group, Ashley House, Cotaplan Modular Buildings and Wernick Modular Buildings are among the nine firms chosen for the four-year deal.
Elite, Integra, Reds10, RG Stones (Buildings) and Western Buildings Systems have also secured places on the framework, which is split into four lots.
One lot involves temporary accommodation, with the remaining three covering modular construction at different scales.
Lot two includes modular schemes up to the value of £750k; lot three covers jobs valued at between £750k and £3m; and lot four is for projects with a value over £3m.
In addition to the appointment of multiple specialist suppliers, Wernick Modular Buildings has successfully won the single supply partner role for lots three and four.
Fusion21 procurement and supply chain manager Nick Verburg said: “This framework offers a flexible procurement solution to all education providers and local authorities who require permanent or temporary safe learning spaces to cope with growing student numbers – and seek quality modular buildings which are compliant with all Building Regulations and present lower carbon emissions than traditional builds.
“Accessing the single supply option will also generate enhanced value for money for Fusion21 members, providing opportunities for collaborative working and early supplier engagement, which will drive down costs and time efficiencies at the design stage of a project.”
The framework is due to go live on 1 June.
