Impact Modular, our subsidiary arm, has been awarded a contract on the £600m Procurement for Housing and Building Better Framework to manufacture high-quality modular homes.
Impact Modular, alongside Ilke Homes and TopHat, will be responsible for the delivery of around 5,300 modular homes over the course of 5 years. Impact Modular has been appointed under Lot 3, focusing on manufacturing low and medium rise apartments.
Since its launch in March 2020, Impact Modular has grown significantly, securing a place on other consortiums as well as its latest appointment on the PfH framework. Under these agreements, our modular arm will engage in a volumetric manufacturing pipeline worth £3bn.
The Procurement for Housing and Building Better MMC category 1 framework encourages early collaboration between members and construction companies to efficiently deliver sustainable and affordable housing, in line with the UK Government’s Future Homes Standard.
Building Better, the National Housing Federation initiative, is a strategic alliance of 29 housing associations and local authorities. The alliance is designed to use the sector’s collective purchasing power to buy homes from offsite manufacturers more cheaply than they could individually, in order to deliver homes more quickly and at better quality, and with lower operating costs.
Rob Peck, Director of Procurement Services at PfH said:
“The momentum behind MMC construction is greater than ever and we are delighted to be bringing this solution to market at a time when the need for new affordable homes and apartments has never been greater. Working closely with development teams we’ve been able to understand the barriers preventing mass adoption of MMC and design a solution that removes the red tape, enables early engagement and has price certainty and quality at the heart of our offer.
Following a detailed and robust procurement process we have appointed three manufacturers that are committed to providing sustainable homes of the highest quality.”
Robert Whitton, Founder and CEO of Impact Capital Group said:
“We are committed to a net zero carbon-built environment transition in the UK and want to provide the sustainable homes of the future through modular means of construction.
Impact Modular’s recent appointment under the PfH volumetric framework reinforces our endeavours to building back greener, bringing MMC to the forefront of housing delivery.”
Jack Randall, Chief Commercial Officer at Impact Modular, said:
“The Government has moved modular construction up on the agenda with significant investment plans. It’s latest Affordable Homes Programme states that at least 25% of homes provided under the scheme must be manufactured through MMC.
Impact Modular is dedicated to delivering better, greener, faster, smarter, safer, and more economical homes and the appointment is a great testament to our efforts so far. With the UK construction industry largely unchanged for over 40 years, this is an invaluable step forward in revolutionising our industry.”
