Collinson Construction appointed to £1.6bn national modular building framework

Collinson Construction has been named as a preferred supplier for public sector modular building projects after winning a place on a government-backed framework.

Our modular division has won through a rigorous procurement process to be named as a supplier on the £1.6bn NHS Shared Business Services (NHS SBS) Framework for Modular Buildings.

Being a supplier on the four-year framework enables Collinson to be awarded projects directly from public sector organisations without the need for a further competitive process.

It means the company will be able to bid directly for modular building projects with organisations in the NHS, ‘blue-light’ services, schools, universities, and local authorities.

Modular construction is where buildings are manufactured off-site in individual sections, known as modules, and then put together on site to form complete buildings. Collinson Construction has its own modular building division and manufactures its own modules at its factory in Catterall, near Preston.

Rob Duxbury, managing director of Collinson Construction, said: “Our modular division is going from strength to strength, and we’re thrilled our growing expertise in this area has been recognised by NHS SBS.

“Being on this framework opens up a much wider customer base for us and will significantly speed up the procurement process for modular buildings. It means we will generate new opportunities and help our clients create energy-efficient buildings that can be delivered quickly and cost-effectively.”

Collinson Construction is one of just 29 UK contractors nationwide to be named as an approved supplier on the framework which is applicable to all public sector organisations across the UK with a requirement for construction works and associated services.

The company has been awarded framework ‘lots’ for bespoke modular buildings, modular healthcare units, and modular education units.

As well as directly awarded projects, other benefits of being a supplier on the framework include having access to dedicated NHS SBS contract managers and framework marketing resources.
