Offsite Construction Solutions

Summary

Provides public sector organisations with the design, fabrication, physical delivery, construction or installation and maintenance of modular buildings, as well as direct access to manufacturers for a complete range of offsite construction solutions.

Description

Offsite Construction Solutions (OCS) will replace our modular building solutions agreement. It will have an increased scope and will continue to provide you with a simple, low-cost way to achieve your offsite solution needs.

The services provided by this agreement will offer you an alternative to a traditionally built environment. You will be able to buy or lease offsite solutions that are designed and manufactured to your particular specification.

Suppliers will manufacture solutions off site and will physically deliver them to your site for installation reducing disruption and lead time.

The agreement will be the ‘go to’ place in the event of a national or local need for temporary building.
