The framework is for the design, manufacture, supply, delivery, installation, commissioning and maintenance of standard modular buildings such as: site offices, changing rooms, portable cabins, toilet blocks and drying rooms and many more options as well as bespoke buildings.
It provides customers with a standard ‘off-the-shelf’ solution, for which it will be possible to have a call-off price list as well as bespoke designs tailored to clients’ requirements.
The framework commenced 1st February 2022 and will end on 30th January 2024. There is an option to extend for up to a further 24 months. It is available for use by any public body in the UK.
Algeco modular buildings for the education sector help specifiers relieve the pressure of growing student numbers with short-, medium- and long-term accommodation solutions. The modular classrooms for hire create a high-quality, comfortable learning environment that enables students to thrive, while offering maximum versatility and minimum disruption.
Algeco modular buildings for the healthcare sector cover offices, GP surgeries and temporary wards through to laboratories. The hire accommodation provides flexible and quick-to-deploy solutions to increase patient and administrative capacity.
“We are delighted to secure a place on the ESPO framework for Lots 1A and 2A,” said Ricky Barford, Sales Director, Algeco Modular Hire. “It provides customers with an efficient, easy and reliable route for procuring high quality modular buildings. The ESPO tendering process ensures that only suppliers that offer competitive prices and excellent service levels, amongst other requirements, gain a place on the framework. That means much of the front end sourcing and supplier evaluation has already been completed for customers.”
