Handforth-based MTX Contracts has been named as one of the suppliers appointed to Fusion21’s expanded modular buildings framework.
Fusion21, the Prescot-based public sector procurement provider, set up a £225m four-year education-specific modular framework in May 2017, to which Wigan’s Cotaplan was named.
The new element of the framework is worth up to £175m over four years, and is broken down into education, health, ‘blue light’ buildings, general civic buildings and sport and leisure.
MTX is one of eight firms that have secured a place on the framework. It has been named to the education and health lots, which are worth up to £50m each. The business has a particular expertise in health, having been an NHS partner for close to 20 years.
Nick Verburg, procurement and supply chain manager at Fusion21, said: “Modular off-site construction is an innovative and cost-effective way to deliver buildings for the 21st century, and we are delighted to have expanded this flexible procurement solution in response to market demand and member feedback.
“Fusion21 members accessing this framework will benefit from significant efficiency savings and social value, whilst accessing a range of sustainable building solutions specific to their building needs and requirements.”
