LHC has launched a third workstream on its off-site framework that will offer clients a complete turnkey solution when they are building new homes.
The public-sector procurement consortium is looking for specialist contractors to apply for the Construction Services Workstream of the Off-site Construction of New Homes framework.
This is the third workstream to be added to the framework and will enable LHC to offer its housing association and local authority clients a complete turnkey solution when it comes to building new homes using off-site construction methods.
Contract Notices have been published and the tender documentation is available for download via the company’s website.
Prospective contractors across England, Wales and Scotland are invited to tender for the Construction Services – Workstream 3. The new framework includes ground works and finishing.
The framework has been divided into three different work streams. Workstreams 1 and 2, for volumetric and panelised building systems, were launched in 2014.
LHC director John Skivington said: “The framework has been designed in such a way that it accommodates contractors of all sizes who are best positioned to deal with large or small projects. We are keen to hear from contractors interested in tendering for the framework.
“The move to supplying a complete turnkey, off-site solutions is the result of the growing interest by social landlords and local authorities to offer them a possible solution to help meet the challenge of building more homes.”
Interested companies are asked to submit their completed tender documentation via LHC’s e-tendering portal by 6 June 2015.
LHC is a not-for-profit consortium set up to provide effective procurement solutions for local authorities, housing associations, schools and other public sector bodies.
