Offsite manufacturer secures place on public sector building framework

Yorkshire-based Premier Modular, an offsite construction specialist, has been awarded a place on the new £330m LHC Modular Buildings Framework.

Premier’s appointment to the framework covers the design, supply and installation of both temporary and permanent modular buildings to NHS trusts, local authorities, social landlords, and other public bodies for the next four years.

LHC is one of the longest-established public sector procurement specialists. Its MB2 framework includes buildings for education, healthcare, emergency services, offices, community facilities, student accommodation, and can also be used for residential projects that form part of a mixed-use development.

It is designed to give public sector construction clients easy access to modular buildings for hire and offsite solutions for permanent applications.

David Harris, managing director of Premier Modular, said: “Our success in so many lots and geographical regions on this prestigious and long-established framework highlights the scope, quality and diversity of our hire buildings and offsite construction solutions for public sector clients across the UK.

“The framework allows public sector construction clients to radically reduce the time and cost of procurement, with the additional benefits of instant access to project data, guaranteed service levels, best value pricing, and faster project commencement.”

Dean Fazackerley, group procurement manager at LHC, said: “Pre-approved suppliers such as Premier Modular, have won their place on this framework based on the high quality of their work and the long-term value they can deliver.

“The consistent quality of modular construction can help increase efficiency, lower lifetime costs and help local authorities, NHS trusts and other public sector bodies achieve their net zero targets by providing better fabric performance and solutions that deliver real social value and community benefits.”

Established in 1956 and based in Brandesburton, Premier offers design, offsite manufacturing, fitting out and construction services, delivering buildings in the education, commercial, industrial, construction welfare, healthcare, and residential sectors.
