Connect Modular appointed on £1.2bn public sector affordable homes framework
Connect Modular, part of The Wee House Group, has been appointed to the LHC Procurement Group’s (LHC) new Modern Methods of Construction (MMC) of new homes (NH3) Framework.
The four-year framework, which is now live and is worth £1.2 billion, is designed to provide an efficient, value-for-money procurement route for local authorities, social landlords and other public sector bodies for the development of new build housing projects and associated works.
Connect Modular described its appointment as a major boost for the company and a clear recognition of its expertise in the industry. The framework will make it easier for clients to work with Connect Modular and gives assurance of its capabilities following a stringent evaluation process.
Craig Vesey, business development manager at Connect Modular, said: “We are delighted to be appointed to the LHC NH3 Framework. This is an exciting opportunity for us to work with our clients to deliver affordable housing with all the quality, environmental and programme benefits our volumetric modular process offers. We look forward to bringing our collaborative approach to a new set of projects and clients through this framework.”
All Connect Modular’s houses are constructed off-site in its Ayrshire factory where they are completed to ceiling height and pre-fitted with kitchens, bathrooms, plumbing and electrics. The houses are then transported to site and craned into position for the final construction works to be completed.
