Construction Modern Methods of Construction

Summary

NFP’s MMC framework (Modern Methods of Construction) is OJEU Compliant. The framework is designed to cover client’s development programmes, driving maximum value for money from its construction supply chain.

There are five categories used by the Housing Corporation to classify an MMC construction system. This framework contains innovative providers with a demonstrable track record in delivering residential housing, using any of the MMC systems listed below.

  • Off-site manufactured – volumetric: three dimensional units produced in a factory, fully fitted out before being transported to site and stacked onto prepared foundations to form dwellings
  • Off-site manufactured – panellised: flat panel units built in a factory and transported to site for assembly into a three-dimensional structure or to fit within an existing structure
  • Off-site manufactured – hybrid: volumetric units integrated with panellised systems
  • Off-site manufactured – sub assemblies and components: larger components that can be incorporated into either conventionally built or MMC dwellings
  • Non off-site manufactured MMC: innovative methods of construction used on-site and the use of conventional components in an innovative ways
Next Steps

How can I use this Framework?

There are two ways to use the framework; direct selection or mini-competition. Clients may enter into contract for any duration that allows for performance to be achieved.

Direct selection

With the direct selection method, you may select the Contractor who is ranked number 1, or any other Contractor/ Consultant on the following basis:

  • Where you have an existing relationship with the Contractor/ Consultant.
  • Where the Call Off has substantial similarities to a previous project the Contractor/ Consultant was involved with. (under this Framework Agreement or not)
  • For reasons of urgency, it is not reasonably practicable to award the Call-Off Contract by way of a Mini-Competition.
  • Capability Criteria determining that only one framework appointee is capable of carrying out the Call-Off Contract.
  • Where the Client is able to determine which Contractor/Consultant will provide it with the most economically advantageous offer.
  • Where the Consultant has introduced the site.

Mini competition

The mini-competition method lets you expand beyond the framework’s original specification to meet your specific requirements. The framework partners from the relevant lot are invited to tender (where capable). This process typically takes 2-4 weeks.

Call-off Forms (E-Sign)

NFP has simplified the call-off process to 5 steps allowing you access to our framework within minutes. The 5 steps include Adobe E-sign and details (or guidance) can be found below; alternatively, you can choose mini-competition.
