Elliott selected as contractor on dfe framework

We are proud to announce that Elliott have been selected as one of the five contractors on Lot 1 of the Department for Education (DfE) Offsite Framework (Incorporating modular and Modern Methods of Construction (MMC) delivery).

This 4-year long framework is focussed on the delivery of offsite built schools and secondary blocks, and has been set up to develop the UK’s commitment to MMC and the use of offsite in construction. Lot 1 concentrates on the construction and delivery of secondary schools, and is valued at £2 billion.

Our portfolio in the Education sector already contains a number of sustainable permanent solutions spanning the sector, from junior schools to sixth form colleges, and this proven expertise was a key factor in our successful application. Our bespoke, highly flexible service is based on a robust and well-proven formula which allows us to deliver state-of-the-art buildings far more quickly than traditional methods of construction.

Our participation in the framework also involves helping to achieve social and/or environmental policy objectives relating to recruitment, training and supply chain initiatives, such as apprenticeships. Our well-established initiatives in sustainability and apprenticeships were another consideration in being selected as a contractor.

This framework is expected to attract a median of 15 projects a year, giving us even more opportunities to develop and deliver prestigious, modern school buildings.
