Public sector opportunities pegged for MMC homes specialists in 2022
Housing contractors and manufacturers are being sought to help shape a multi-million-pound framework launching later this year to deliver MMC homes including net carbon zero homes.
SPA's Modern Methods of Construction of New Homes (NH3) framework will run across Scotland in a bid to address new housing challenges in the sector.
The framework will allow local authorities, social landlords and other contracting authorities to source housing, apartments, multi-occupancy buildings including care homes, sheltered accommodation and student accommodation.
Where the previous framework covered three-dimensional units and panelised systems, the updated framework NH3 will now also look to include a wider range of MMC categories.
Dean Fazackerley, Head of LHC Group Technical Procurement, said:
“NH3 aims to support local authorities in their journey to net zero using a range of MMC and by developing collaboration, and aggregation of demand between clients and the supply chain to deliver significant improvement in the social value and community benefits whilst supporting local housing needs.”
The new framework will build on the success of the previous, where 16 projects worth £34m have already been delivered across Scotland.
To boost contribution to national targets and increase provision of MMC in new housing, we are encouraging both manufacturers and contractors to express an interest to become involved in pre-tender engagement to help shape the future framework.
Firms on the existing NH2 framework include CCG, Hadden, Ilke Homes, ISO Spaces Module-AR and Zed Pods.
Both manufacturers and contractors are encouraged to register interest for the framework, opening for applications in summer 2022.
