LHC Lifetime Values

In addition to providing our clients with competitively tendered Framework Agreements for building works, goods, and services LHC is committed to delivering tangible social value and community benefits in meeting local and regional needs. LHC work with our clients and appointed companies to ensure that wherever possible projects delivered using our Frameworks leave a social legacy.

LHC has aligned its activities to create the LHC Lifetime Values, which uses the 4 key value capitals as identified in the value toolkit by the Construction Innovation Hub.

During the life of the Framework LHC will work with clients and appointed companies to promote, identify, implement, and monitor the impact of these value categories, which could be supported by social value and community benefit initiatives alongside the delivery of the works or service contracts in meeting local and regional needs.
