East Yorkshire firm to create jobs with £500m modular building project
An East Yorkshire company has joined a £500m modular building development that will bring jobs and investment to the region.
Integra Buildings has won a bid to supply the government’s Modular Building Solutions framework, a four-year initiative to deliver construction projects for the public sector.
The company has been named in two lots, involving capital costs of up to £750k or hire costs of up to £150k (excluding education and healthcare), and capital costs from £750k to £3.5m or hire costs from £150k to £700k.
As a result of the project, Integra Buildings has already expanded its team with three new hires, and pledged to invest up to £1m in staff and production facilities at its site in Paull near Hull.
Integra Buildings managing director Gary Parker explained: “The Government is making a very serious commitment to modular building and being named on the framework is massive for us.
“At a time when all businesses are having to deal with uncertainty, this will give us the confidence to create new jobs and invest in our people and facilities because of the potential value of the work.”
Speaking about the impact locally, Gary continued: “It’s also a great opportunity for our suppliers. Ninety per cent of them are based within 30 miles of our site, so by securing a pipeline of work, we’ll broaden and deepen our supply chain and give other local firms a chance to grow.”
