Our purpose is to deliver better buildings and homes that enhance local communities.
How we operate at LHC is shaped by our values.
Our values, upholding excellence through:
-- Integrity, Respect, Trust and Transparency
-- Knowledge and Professional Experience
-- Being Flexible, Adaptable and Creative
-- Employing, developing and maintaining committed teams of happy and healthy employees
Our organisation began half a century ago and over five decades we’ve developed and shaped our service to meet the evolving needs of our clients.
Our technical expertise is built on continuous research by our team of technical specialists who consult with clients, on the outcomes they need and suppliers, on the range of available solutions.
Our ultimate goal is helping our clients deliver better environments for the communities they serve. We support this goal through our frameworks, that address every aspect of quality, and through our selection of the most appropriate suppliers.
Once LHC Appointed Companies have been established for a framework, the process of calling-off projects and commissioning work is very efficient. Terms and rates have been agreed and even when a mini competition is required, the majority of contractual arrangements have already been finalised. Project work can then start quickly.
Working with LHC frameworks gives suppliers access to construction, refurbishment and maintenance projects of £350m each financial year. Clients who spend more than £200,000 on two or more frameworks in a year, will benefit from a share in the LHC operating surplus we return to Members, which in 2019/20 was over £1.3m.
The legal authority for LHC to conduct its business is derived from LHC status as a Joint Committee of local authorities.
Governance is provided through the Committee of Elected Members known as the LHC Board. These are councilor representatives of the constituent authorities. The LHC Board meets twice a year.
The attendance record and latest LHC Board Meeting are both available to view below, which was held on 26th June 2020.
Management & People
The day-to-day activities of the organisation are carried out by the LHC Operations Group - a dedicated team of technical, commercial and administration professionals.
The group is led and managed by a Group Strategy Team which reports to the LHC Board twice a year.
