New suppliers join Fusion21 framework after £175m expansion

A modular build development

Liverpool procurement specialist Fusion21 has announced an increase in suppliers appointed to its modular building framework, following an expansion worth £175m over a four year period.

Eight highly skilled firms have secured a place on the framework which is designed to service the blue light, health and leisure sectors, in addition to providing buildings for educational purposes and wider public use.

With a full turnkey solution for the design, manufacture and installation of buildings of modular construction, the framework – worth a total of £400m – provides Fusion21 members, temporary or permanent, quality modular buildings which are compliant with all building regulations and present lower carbon emissions than traditional builds.

Nick Verburg, procurement and supply chain manager at Prescot-based Fusion21, said: “Modular off-site construction is an innovative and cost-effective way to deliver buildings for the 21st century, and we are delighted to have expanded this flexible procurement solution in response to market demand and member feedback.

“Fusion21 members accessing this framework will benefit from significant efficiency savings and social value, whilst accessing a range of sustainable building solutions specific to their building needs and requirements.”

Fusion21 provides procurement services and OJEU compliant frameworks to the public sector, and is committed to making a difference in communities across the UK.

To date the firm has saved its members more than £177m through the procurement process, created more than 5,100 jobs and generated £76m of community impact.
