Cabinet Office draw up £10bn offsite framework

The government is set to renew its framework for modular buildings and offsite construction.

The new agreement, Offsite Construction Solutions (OCS) will replace the existing modular building framework, which will be available for use by housing association, charities, and the UK public sector.

Providing public sector organisations with the design, fabrication, physical delivery, construction or installation and maintenance of prefabricated buildings, OCS is being composed by a division of the Cabinet Office, Crown Commercial Service (CCS).

The new framework will also aid in direct access to manufacturer for a full range of offsite construction systems – running for four years with an option to extend by an additional three years and is valued at £10 billion.

Bids must be complete and sent by 7th October 2022.
