Caledonian secures top spot on the £300 million ESFA Batch C Modular Framework
Caledonian, and its partner Architects HLM, has secured first place on the modular framework to provide permanent, component based buildings and facilities for the ESFA’s new secondary schools block replacement programme.
Caledonian won this procurement competition with others from the offsite construction sector securing top spot against 64 other bidders at PQQ stage and then against a shortlist of 5 at ITT stage. Being awarded first place immediately secures two projects with a combined value of £12m with potential to realise further schemes within the £250m funding allocated to the lot.
Commenting on this major framework appointment, Paul Lang, CEO said, “Our success in this award comes from developing an exemplar design solution, working in partnership with Education specialist Architects HLM, to address the needs of the ESFA within their funding envelope whilst demonstrating our capability and capacity to successfully deliver such a capacious programme of work.”
“An important factor in our appointment was our proven record of providing full turnkey design and build solutions, modelling our clients’ requirements and managing stakeholder engagement. The Caledonian solution developed for this commission coupled with our standard processes, systems and in-house technology helps clients to reduce risk, save time and optimise the speed and efficiency benefits of offsite construction.”
“2019 will see organic growth in our business building on exemplary performance from 2018 and we are actively bolstering our teams to support this new business growth. This is supported by recent capital investments in factory and process improvements including improved MRP/ERP systems.”
“Following a lengthy and rigorous selection process we are delighted to be making a significant contribution in developing paradigm shifting standardised building systems for permanent use within the education market place.”
