These are the key reasons to work with LHC, whether you’re a public sector organisation looking for procurement solutions, or a supplier with products or services to provide.


Knowledge and experience of procurement

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.


Recognised technical expertise

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.


Commitment to better buildings and homes

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.


Fast and efficient procurement

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.


Financial gains

Working with LHC frameworks gives suppliers access to construction, refurbishment and maintenance projects of over £100m 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 2013/14 was a record £2.1m.


The amount we have given back to our members over the last 4 years.
