Working in partnership with the public and private sector

We work as a key partner on a number of public sector frameworks for healthcare buildings, including NHS Shared Business Services, Crown Commercial Services Framework and the LHC Modular Buildings Framework. The modular frameworks complement the speed of offsite construction by providing OJEU-compliant, rapid, and cost-effective procurement.

Our inspiring modular space solutions are suitable for highly constrained hospital sites, minimising disruption to patient care during installation. Sites that are completely inaccessible for traditional construction can be developed and existing facilities can be expanded rapidly and cost effectively, both vertically and horizontally. All our standard and bespoke modular space solutions recognise the need for expertly planned, comfortable, safe surroundings conducive to providing better healthcare.

We have the capabilities and experience to deliver seamless extensions which maintain patient flows, self-contained units, and health centres through to full hospital complexes – in compliance with all relevant requirements – HTM, HBN, SHTM, WHTM and HAI-SCRIBE.
