SCOTTISH Procurement Alliance (SPA) has announced it is “building on the success” of the NH1 Offsite Construction framework by hosting two pre-tender engagement seminars to discuss its renewal.

SPA partners have so far used the framework to plan the delivery of over 2,800 homes through 57 projects.

All organisations who can deliver offsite housing have now been invited to discuss their plans and share ideas about promoting the use of offsite construction. The NH2 framework is aimed at delivering housing for the public sector to support the Scottish Government’s plans for 50,000 new homes.

SPA will hold a meeting at their offices in Livingston on Wednesday 16 May and one at North Inch Community Campus in Perth the following day. Technical manager Tony Woods said, “Our pre-tender process allows organisations to learn how the NH1 framework was delivered along with its successes and the lessons we have learnt from it. In addition to this, organisations are given the opportunity to influence the structure and set up of the NH2 framework, ensuring it is fit for purpose in the Scotland.”
