The framework is divided into four lots: hire of modular buildings – temporary accommodation (Lot 1); modular construction with a value of up to £750,000 (Lot 2); modular construction with a value between £750,000 and £3m (Lot 3); and modular construction worth £3m or more (Lot 4).

Fusion21 wanted a single supplier for Lots 3 and 4 and has chosen Wernick Modular Buildings for this.

Companies appointed to Lots 1 and 2 are:

  • Aike Group
  • Ashley House
  • Cotaplan Modular Buildings
  • Elite Systems
  • Integra Buildings
  • Reds10 (UK)
  • RG Stones (Buildings)
  • Wernick Modular Buildings
  • Western Building Systems.

Nick Verburg, procurement and supply chain manager at Fusion21, 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 goes live on 1st June 2017.
