NetZero Buildings has won a place on the Department for Education’s (DfE) new £3 billion framework to build the UK’s next generation of schools.

The manufacturer of carbon positive and net zero buildings will create buildings offsite using modern methods of construction to help deliver 30 schools a year.

The framework has a total projected pipeline of up to £3 billion over the next four years – NetZero Buildings will work on developing carbon positive primary schools and smaller secondary schools, which will be able to generate more energy than they consume.

It has already delivered 100 A+ EPC rated schools from its factory in Cambridgeshire.

Steve Murphy, CEO of NetZero Buildings, said: “As a business we are unashamed in our ambitions to create better schools and better homes which are delivered faster, at a lower cost than traditional build and most importantly help us to prevent climate change.

“Winning a place on this £3 billion framework will be transformational for NetZero Buildings and is a testament to the skills and expertise of our team who consistently deliver some of Britain’s best new school buildings.”
