Contracts awarded for £1bn new build housing framework in England

Thirty-two suppliers have been awarded a place on a new four year, £1bn new build framework to deliver public sector construction projects in England.

Not-for-profit public sector framework provider LHC will operate the new Construction of New Homes (H2) framework from 5 September 2022 to 4 September 2026.

The framework offers a range of traditional housing solutions to the public sector, as well as low, medium and high-rise construction, care homes, mixed-use sites and sheltered, student and keyworker accommodation. It also supports a focus on creating net zero homes, bringing environmental benefits at a local level and improving the lives of communities, while addressing ongoing local housing challenges.

Associated civil engineering and infrastructure works required for new build housing and net zero buildings are also covered under the framework, creating opportunities for specialist contractors to apply for the standalone groundworks, demolition and site clearance work needed to facilitate the construction of new homes.

LHC’s regional business units across England operating the framework include LHC London and South East and Consortium Procurement Construction (CPC) in the North and Midlands.

Dean Fazackerley, head of technical procurement at LHC, said:

“The new H2 framework in England will equip providers to meet ongoing housing challenges within the public sector, addressing local housing demand while maintaining momentum in their journey towards the production of zero carbon homes.

It’s hugely important that we continue to respond to the housing needs of local populations while at the same time looking to the future, creating healthier environments that embody social, human, and environmental considerations.”
