Window and door suppliers named on £66 million public sector framework

Eleven window and door suppliers have won places on a new £66 million national framework to supply the public sector.

The PVC-U and Timber Windows and Doors Framework (WD2) from not-for-profit public sector construction framework provider LHC covers manufacture, supply and installation of PVC-U, timber and aluminium-clad windows and doors to local authorities, social landlords and other public sector bodies.

Live from 1 August 2022 until 31 July 2026, WD2 is worth up to £30 million in Scotland, £20 million in England and £16 million in Wales, and allows organisations to source products and end-to-end design services for both residential and non-residential projects. It builds on previous frameworks from LHC by offering increased product variety, with suppliers assessed for improved u-values, acoustic performance, durability, and lifecycle costs.

LHC’s regional business units across England running the framework include LHC London and South EastConsortium Procurement Construction (CPC) in the North and Midlands, and South West Procurement Alliance (SWPA)Scottish Procurement Alliance (SPA) in Scotland and Welsh Procurement Alliance (WPA) in Wales. 

Dean Fazackerley, LHC head of technical procurement, said:

“While PVC-U remains a core product and choice for many, sustainability requirements are making timber and aluminium clad timber a more popular choice for windows and doors, which is why we have brought all three materials together for ease of supply to the public sector.

“With the updated Building Regulations 2022 requiring 31 per cent carbon emissions reduction in domestic buildings and 27 per cent in non-domestic, as well as the new Part L identifying key areas for improved fuel and energy conservation, our clients are looking to source products that support them in meeting their legal requirements. WD2 does just that, through a pre-approved pool of companies that meet these standards. This framework will also help social landlords and public sector organisations look beyond the horizon and prepare for the 2025 Future Homes Standard.”

The appointed companies to WD2 across England, Scotland and Wales are:

CCG (Scotland) Limited

C R Smith Manufacturing Limited

IDM Doors Limited

Graham Holmes Astraseal Limited

Nationwide Windows Limited

SER Contractor Limited

Sidey Solutions Limited

Solar Windows Limited

Sovereign Group Limited

The framework features three workstreams, covering:
