LHC, a local authority owned procurement organisation formerly called London Housing Consortium, has put together a third generation of its Public Buildings Construction and Infrastructure (PB3) framework.

This allows local authorities, social landlords and other public sector bodies to source contractors for construction and refurbishment works, as well as associated infrastructure works.

The PB3 framework runs for four years from 1st October 2021 until 30th September 2025.

LHC says that the framework is worth up to £750m in England, £750m in Scotland and £100m in Wales.
