Introduction to the Framework

The SWPA Framework Agreement for Modular Buildings (design, manufacture, supply and installation) is available to public sector organisations in England and forms one of the SWPA Construction, Extension and Refurbishment portfolio.

Fully OJEU compliant, the Modular Buildings Framework provides public sector organisations with easy access to off-site manufactured, volumetric and panelised building systems for the use in non-residential buildings and residential projects where they are of mixed-use development or for student accommodation for schools and universities.

SWPA Lifetime Values

In addition to providing our clients with competitively tendered framework agreements for building works, goods, and services SWPA is committed to delivering tangible social value and community benefits in meeting local and regional needs. SWPA work with our clients and appointed companies to ensure that wherever possible projects delivered using our frameworks leave a social legacy.

SWPA has aligned its activities to create the SWPA Lifetime Values, which uses the four key value capitals as identified in the value toolkit by the Construction Innovation Hub.

During the life of the framework SWPA will work with clients and appointed companies to promote, identify, implement, and monitor the impact of these value capitals, which could be supported by social value and community benefit initiatives alongside the delivery of the works or service contracts in meeting local and regional needs.
