Modular construction specialist lands place on new housing framework

CUMNOCK-based Connect Modular is celebrating after being appointed to the H2 New Build Housing Construction Framework by the Scottish Procurement Alliance (SPA).

The four-year public sector framework replaces the previous H1 framework. Developed by LHC, the SPA website states the newly released framework has been 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’.

Of the 20 contractors listed on the H2 framework, Connect Modular is the only modular construction company to be appointed.

MD Jennifer Higgins said, “This is the first time Connect Modular has been named on this prestigious framework and we are delighted. Having the endorsement of the Scottish Procurement Alliance and LHC is hugely important and will make it easier for clients to work with us.

“The appointment, following a stringent evaluation process, clearly demonstrates our scope to deliver high-quality homes in a safer environment and deliver a net zero product.

“To be listed as the sole modular construction firm on this framework sends a strong message to the market that Connect Modular is a highly capable, reputable contractor and our modern method of modular construction is paving the way forward.”

Connect Modular revealed its appointment comes at a time when the business is going ‘from strength to strength’. The firm will shortly complete a 63-home modular housing development for Riverside Scotland in Dundonald, South Ayrshire, while earlier this month it embarked upon a new £17 million project to deliver 101 modular homes for Cunninghame Housing in Kilmarnock, in partnership with The Scottish Government and East Ayrshire Council.
