Local authority procurement specialist LHC has set out plans to tender five major public sector frameworks this year for mission zero retrofits and building compliance.

The frameworks will support public sector organisations as they seek to tackle a backlog of retrofit, energy efficiency, and asset safety and compliance works.

LHC is encouraging public sector organisations, as well as contractors, consultants, and suppliers to register their interest for the frameworks.

Frameworks rollout programme


Asset Safety and Compliance (ASC1) Framework

To help the public sector meet government guidelines around building safety and maintenance. It will provide: property protection; asbestos management; water testing, treatment, and management; heating, ventilation, and air conditioning-related services; and electrical testing and remedials.

Applications open from 30 January-16 March 2023, with suppliers appointed in summer 2023.

Refurbishment and Associated Retrofit Works Framework

Targetting social housing providers to deliver a range of refurbishment, improvement works and associated retrofit works – from kitchen and bathroom replacement, to external and fabric works, painting and decorating, and electricals.

Early market engagement from February – March, with tender release likely in late spring or early summer 2023.

Energy Efficiency and Decarbonisation Framework

To deliver a range of energy efficiency and decarbonisation works and energy efficiency consultancy services. Improve asset and stock ratings fitting solar PV and heat pumps, as well as combined solutions meeting PAS 2035 requirements for whole house retrofit.

Early market engagement runs spring 2023, with anticipated tender release summer 2023.

Fire Safety (FS2) Framework

Supporting clients with a spectrum of fire safety requirements, FS2 will deliver pre-approved expertise in consultancy, installation, replacement and servicing.

Spring 2023 will see a period of early market engagement, with tender documents released in summer.

Supply and Installation of Aluminium Windows and Doors Framework

The framework will deliver design, supply and installation of aluminium windows, doors and curtain walling for public sector new build and refurbishment projects.

Tender documents are anticipated for release in winter 2023

LHC head of technical procurement Dean Fazackerley said: “Energy efficiency, retrofit and compliance are all top of the agenda for the public sector in 2023 and this looks set to deliver significant work for contractors and suppliers with expertise in these areas up to 2030 and beyond.

“With the UK attempting to reduce its dependence on fossil fuels and a target to retrofit 26 million homes, these frameworks answer a specific market need for specialists in energy efficiency, decarbonisation and retrofit.

“This is an exciting time to get involved with LHC frameworks. We’re inviting public sector organisations, and contractors and companies delivering the expertise to help shape them to reflect market needs and on-the-ground knowledge of delivery.”
