NHS Share Business Services in the UK has opened the next generation of its modular buildings framework. NHS Shared Business Services is a joint venture between the UK’s Department of Health and Sopra Steria.

The new version of the NHS modular buildings framework runs initially from 5th July 2021 until 4th July 2023 and is expected to be worth £1.6bn to the selected 29 suppliers over the two year term.

The agreement covers the purchase, hire or lease of modular design solutions, from simple £20,000 hire to complex £20m+ new build projects.

It is divided into six lots: bespoke modular buildings, modular healthcare units and modular education units, for both sale and hire in each case..

The framework can be accessed by all public sector organisations in the UK including the education, and residential sectors, as well as healthcare.

Businesses appointed to the framework will be required to deliver full turnkey solutions, from planning applications, design and enabling works through to site works and landscaping.
