Modular Building Solutions

Modular Building Solutions


ESPO's Modular Buildings framework (953) has been set up to assist the public sector in procuring modular buildings for virtually all purposes.

We have incorporated dedicated Lots covering modular buildings for education, healthcare, catering and accommodation all with the option to either hire or purchase depending on your procurement needs. We have an additional Lot for ‘other’ modular buildings designed to cover all other popular requirements including but not limited to office, storage and portable bathrooms.

What's better is that our framework is free-to-access, fully EU compliant and all of the suppliers have been pre-approved by our team of procurement professionals.

Ease of use and flexibility

One of our key objectives during the procurement of this framework was to consider the ease of use and flexibility for our customers. As a result, we can offer the option to select a supplier via direct award or further competition and we are able to provide guidance throughout the process as well as template documents to speed up the process.
