Procurement and Frameworks

The use of widely-recognised frameworks can significantly reduce procurement time and cost.

Following the completion of stringent assessments, you can be assured of our business credentials, quality control processes, KPIs, and that our building solutions comply with all relevant Building Regulations and standards.

LHC Modular Buildings Framework

LHC is one of the longest-established public sector procurement specialists.

Premier’s appointment to the four-year LHC framework covers the design, supply, and installation of both temporary and permanent modular buildings to NHS trusts, local authorities, social landlords, and other public bodies in regions across the UK.

The Modular Buildings MB2 framework includes buildings for education, healthcare, emergency services, offices, community facilities, student accommodation, and can also be used for residential projects that form part of a mixed-use development.

This framework is designed to give public sector construction clients easy access to modular buildings for hire and bespoke offsite solutions for permanent applications.

NHS Commercial Solutions

NHS Commercial Solutions is a non-profit procurement service that provides collaborative solutions across the NHS and the wider public sector. This includes support for acute, mental health and community services, ambulance trusts, and commissioning organisations.

Premier’s range of temporary and permanent modular building solutions can be procured under the NHS Commercial Solutions Modular Buildings framework.

Flexible Funding Solutions

Premier offers a range of flexible financing options to allow clients to use revenue budgets as an alternative to capital funding.

These options include hire, lease purchase and long-term building rental as well as building purchase.

CIF Funding for Education Projects

For schools, sixth form colleges or academies applying for the Department for Education Condition Improvement Fund (CIF), the speed of construction of an offsite approach can be a huge advantage where school facilities need replacement and there is a short window for completion to meet the criteria for funding.

Premier’s flexible approach means we can work in partnership with a principal contractor or directly for a school, college, or academy.

Our specialist education teams are available to offer support and advice for CIF projects.
