Introduction to the Framework

This SWPA framework, with our contracting authority LHC, for the offsite construction of new homes includes volumetric and panelised systems, and is suitable for low, medium, and high-rise projects. Full turnkey solutions are also available through this procurement solution.

SWPA, with Magna Housing and Wiltshire Council, have engaged with the Offsite Construction of New Homes (NH2) framework as part of a demand aggregation project, read more about this here or download the ‘Easy as 1,2,3’ document.  

To help public sector bodies get the best outcome from an offsite construction project our Offsite Project Integrator (OPI1) framework provides access to specialist consultants with experience in this area.

OJEU compliant frameworks for offsite construction

Fully OJEU compliant, it provides local authorities, housing associations and other social landlords with easy access to offsite manufactured volumetric, panelised, highrise and turnkey building systems for the use in new home build projects.

The framework includes the option of a turnkey solution including design, manufacture, supply, installation and construction services. Alternatively, a supply and erection service is available. Suppliers on the framework have developed standard house types which help clients avoid design issues and save time and money, as the houses already comply with Building Regulations, the Housing Quality Index (HQI) and funding authority requirements.
