£100m roofing framework designed to give opportunities to smaller firms
Local government procurement organisation LHC has issued a contract notice for its new pitched roofing framework that is worth an estimated £100m over four years.
LHC wants to hear from contractors and suppliers interested in tendering for the framework that will include the removal of existing roof coverings, the supply and installation of pitched roofing, flat to pitch conversions and associated roofing works.
The framework is likely to be used for social housing, schools and council office roofing projects across England, Wales and Scotland.
The framework has two value bands across 20 regional lots, providing an opportunity for smaller, local companies to be appointed. Each regional lot will consist of up to five companies per band.
With companies only able to tender for one band, the option designed for works between £5,000 and £250,000 should appeal to smaller companies, while larger ones are expected to target the band that allows for larger works values.
LHC director John Skivington said: “Our members are increasingly looking for a localised solution to service their requirements. This framework has been designed to encourage SMEs by splitting the tender into smaller regional lots and value bands, as well as introducing evaluation criteria aimed at assessing local economic and social sustainability.”
Interested companies should register via LHC's e-tendering portal.
