The SCB1 framework, valued at up to £800m, will be launched on 1 July. It is designed to help public sector bodies access best value, quality solutions for publically owned non-housing projects.
Divided in to two workstreams, Workstream 1 is for new build extensions and includes a full scope design service option as well as traditional and bespoke design and build choices.
Workstream 2 is for general refurbishment with a supported design service for external works. This includes the replacement of flat and pitched roofing, windows and doors, cladding and insulation. The internal works include the refurbishment of learning environments such as science laboratories and home economics facilities, remodelling of buildings and refurbishment of sports changing facilities.
The selected contractors have been appointed through the tender process on a regional basis across England, Wales and Scotland. They are:

LHC director John Skivington said: “We are pleased to have launched this new framework resulting from customer demand for a contractor based framework which encompasses community buildings, as well as schools and other educational establishments.
“Our previous educational buildings framework, EF1, was restricted to schools. We are confident that the new SCB1 framework will build upon the successes of this framework and allow customers to easily access contractors for works on community buildings, too.
“Users of the SCB1 framework can also benefit from technical advice and ongoing project support offered by LHC.”
