Public sector construction framework provider LHC has named 11 window and door suppliers that have won places on its new £66million WD2 Framework covering manufacture, supply and installation of PVC-U, timber and – also for the first time – aluminium-clad windows and doors.

They are: CCG (Scotland), C R Smith Manufacturing, IDM Doors, Graham Holmes Astraseal, Nationwide Windows, SER Contractor, Sidey Solutions, Solar Windows, Sovereign Group, Specialist Building Contracting and The Window Company (Contracts).

Running until July 2026, WD2 is worth up to £30million in Scotland, £20million in England and £16million in Wales. It allows organisations to source products and end-to-end design services for both residential and non-residential projects. It builds on previous frameworks from LHC by offering increased product variety, with suppliers assessed for improved u-values, acoustic performance, durability, and lifecycle costs.

LHC’s regional business units across England running the framework include LHC London and South East, Consortium Procurement Construction (CPC) in the North and Midlands, and South West Procurement Alliance (SWPA), Scottish Procurement Alliance (SPA) in Scotland and Welsh Procurement Alliance (WPA) in Wales.

LHC head of technical procurement Dean Fazackerley said: “While PVC-U remains a core product and choice for many, sustainability requirements are making timber and aluminium clad timber a more popular choice for windows and doors, which is why we have brought all three materials together for ease of supply to the public sector.

“With the updated Building Regulations 2022 requiring 31 per cent carbon emissions reduction in domestic buildings and 27 per cent in non-domestic, as well as the new Part L identifying key areas for improved fuel and energy conservation, our clients are looking to source products that support them in meeting their legal requirements. WD2 does just that, through a pre-approved pool of companies that meet these standards. This framework will also help social landlords and public sector organisations look beyond the horizon and prepare for the 2025 Future Homes Standard.”
