Football Foundation kicks off £150m modular construction framework

The Football Foundation has set out plans for a £150m modular construction framework to build changing room facilities across the UK.

The four-year framework will include the design, manufacture, supply and installation of modular buildings, as well as any other associated construction works, for sports changing facilities in the UK.

Projects will also include modular extensions to existing sports facilities.

The works will include projects not just for the Football Foundation and the Football Association, but also a wide range of other sporting bodies and councils.

These include Sport England, the Rugby Football Union, England Hockey and the England & Wales Cricket Board, as well as local authorities in England and Wales plus academies, free schools and universities.

It will also be available to community sports clubs that have been awarded grant funding by national sports bodies and local councils.

Works under the framework will be called off under a mini-competition, with winning firms expected to act as principal designer and contractor.

In total, the Football Foundation expects to pick 12 firms for the four-year framework, which will be worth between £120m and £150m.

Sport England has previously supported schemes including the £15m Scarborough Leisure Village, currently being built by Wilmott Dixon.
