six.3) Additional information

South West Procurement Alliance (SWPA), the South West hub of the London Housing Consortium (LHC) Group has long standing experience in offering frameworks and other procurement solutions for the public sector and has in recent years built up a portfolio of expertise in MMC/ Offsite solutions through traditional construction and MMC Offsite frameworks (mmc.lhc.gov.uk ). Working in partnership with CMM and developing a DPS provides the opportunity for many new and emerging MMC/Offsite suppliers to engage with public sector organisations. It is hoped that these will come forward from the SW region supporting and boosting the local economy.

This is a Dynamic Purchasing System (DPS) for the construction of residential dwellings (and any associated community buildings and facilities) incorporating low energy offsite systems across the South West for the public sector. The DPS is aimed at delivering offsite housing, apartments, care homes and multi-occupancy dwellings including zero carbon solutions.

This DPS application process will run in conjunction with a new digital toolkit from Constructing Modern Methods (CMM).

CMM was developed as a concept in a previous piece of research funded by the Local Government Association and conducted with Bristol City Council (BCC) and Bristol Housing Festival (BHF) to understand what resources might make the widescale adoption of modern methods of construction and offsite housing solutions more feasible.

In April 2020, a consortium of partners led by YTKO and including BCC, BHF, BRE and 9 leading modular housing companies were awarded an innovate UK grant for their project, 'Enabling Housing Innovation for Inclusive Growth'. CMM is one of the direct outcomes of that Innovate UK project. Further information about the Innovate UK project is available here https://westofengland.ytko.com/constructing-modern-methods/

CMM offers an innovative solution to the acceleration of offsite, modular housing by allowing suppliers to bring their solutions within the DPS through a robust and quality assured database.

This digital tool from CMM was designed specifically for and importantly with local authorities to provide an outcome-led procurement solution. The digital toolkit is key to achieving the projected rate of uptake in areas of MMC and offsite housing. It allows users to optioneer against a full spectrum of systems, organisations and performance options. This empowers the decision makers within local authorities, housing associations etc. at the call-off stage, helping narrow down the market to a number of possible options. These options are the confidently based on local policy and project specific criteria. Selected suppliers will then be invited to tender via a mini-competition.
