Public sector procurement specialist LHC has launched the final workstream of its energy efficiency and refurbishment framework.

Individual Energy Efficiency & Renewable Measures

Delivered through 6 regional lots in England and Wales, where 62% of the 29 suppliers appointed to carry out works are SME’s, this workstream provides regionally based procurement solutions, for the refurbishment of social housing, offices, schools and other public buildings.

Offering landlords the opportunity to appoint local SMEs through Individual Energy Efficiency & Renewable Measures, this workstream provides external, cavity and internal wall insulation, traditional and individual biomass heating boiler systems, photovoltaic systems, air source heat pump systems (air to water), as well as district heating (heat interface units).

LHC Director, John Skivington commented: “We are seeing a strong demand for energy efficiency measures in all types of public sector buildings and this addition to our framework allows us to offer smaller local contractor for lower value projects.”

Two other workstreams are available through this framework, one offering Energy Consultants and Project Management Services including stock assessment and recommendations, funding and finance advice and project management. The third offers Energy Efficiency and Refurbishment through contractors who can provide all measures.

LHC Head of Technical, Nigel added, “As a whole, this all-encompassing framework not only incorporates measures that have featured in previous LHC frameworks, but now includes a specific band for consultancy and project management.

“We are delighted that such a large proportion suppliers are SME’s for this particular workstream band and that we are able to deliver local supply chain to our members”.

The framework is available to public sector organisations in England and Wales until 2020.
