LHC launches offsite homes framework

15 May 14 Public sector procurement consortium LHC is putting together a framework of suppliers for offsite housebuilding.

LHC is seeking companies involved in the design, manufacture, supply and erection of offsite building systems for social housing development to tender for its New Homes framework arrangement (NH1).

The framework will be available via two work streams: one for volumetric build and the other for panelised systems. LHC said that this would provide customers with choices that consider the flexibility of design, transportation, site access, projects in planning and integration with existing build programmes.

The framework will be available through eight lots across England, Wales and Scotland, reflecting expected social housing building volumes.

The tender will be weighted 70% on quality and 30% on price and will consider project management, product quality and compliance with relevant funding bodies and technical regulation. The framework is not material specific.

LHC director John Skivington said: “We are very excited about this new framework opportunity, which will significantly increase our portfolio for social housing landlords.

 “We believe that with our experience in the social housing construction sector, we will be able to attract companies who can offer social landlords high quality best value options for quick and efficient housing constructing.”

Companies can register their interest at www.lhc.gov.uk/Tendering-for-LHC-Frameworks/LHC-E-Tendering and follow the link to the e-tendering Portal.
