One of the winners, Integra Buildings, said that projects delivered through the framework would help secure its long-term future, bringing at least 10 new jobs over the next year and an investment of up to £1m in production facilities at its site in Paull, east of Hull.

Managing director Gary Parker said: “The government is making a very serious commitment to modular building and being named on the framework is massive for us. At a time when all businesses are having to deal with uncertainty, this will give us the confidence to create new jobs and invest in our people and facilities because of the potential value of the work.

“We’ve already taken on three more people in the past three weeks and we’re currently recruiting for new technical staff to help us remain at the forefront of innovation. We’re confident that more new jobs will follow, supported by projects through this framework.

“We’re also planning a major investment of up to £1m in our in-house manufacturing capability, including upgrading our pure steel manufacturing facility, which will make the business more self-sufficient. That’s on top of the £3m we have invested on this site over the past 18 months.
