We’re proud to announce that we have been appointed to Fusion21’s Education Modular Buildings Framework, which is worth up to £225 million over a four-year period.

As one of nine companies on the framework, we will have the opportunity to bid for projects worth millions of pounds. Fusion21 brings together modular construction companies to provide a turnkey solution for the design, manufacture and installation of modular buildings to existing and new educational property estates.

Commenting on the appointment, our managing director, Marcus Sutcliffe, said: “I am very happy to have been appointed to Fusion21’s framework, which will give us the opportunity to take our firm to the next level.

“We have a proven track record of manufacturing and installing educational buildings in a narrow timeframe, and are able to work around sites with limited access to make the best use of the space available. Our collaborative, tailored approach puts us in a good position to deliver successful projects under the framework.”

Unlike traditional building projects, off-site construction typically requires just a few weeks on site – around 75 per cent of the building is manufactured in our specialist factory in Cleckheaton, West Yorkshire, while we undertake groundworks on-site. Once on-site, our installation team connects the building to utilities and, if required, finishes the internal decoration.

Marcus continued: “Schools often require increased space at short notice with minimal disruption to pupils and staff, so modular construction is an ideal solution. Our bespoke approach to off-site construction means that we can deliver buildings that fit into any available space, and can be installed on-site during the summer holidays.”

At Elite, we have a strong record of delivering cost-effective, high-quality bespoke modular buildings for education, providing both temporary and permanent solutions for schools which need to accommodate increasing pupil numbers.
