Contractors sought for windows and doors framework for public sector projects
Windows and doors contractors seeking new public sector opportunities can now register their interest and get involved with early market consultation for a new framework that will be issued later this year.
The tender process will be carried out by LHC on behalf of WPA. At the moment, three workstreams are anticipated to be available within the framework: PVC-u windows and doors, timber windows and doors and aluminium-clad timber windows.
Dean Fazackerley, LHC’s Head of Technical Procurement, said:
“Our windows and doors frameworks are always popular, and we expect interest in timber to continue to increase as sustainability requirements develop. It is also essential that these new frameworks will help our public sector clients to meet the forthcoming, enhanced Part L regulations and the Future Homes Standard, so we’ll be looking for evidence of product performance from tendering contractors, with emphasis on u-values, durability and lifecycle costs.”
LHC is currently in the planning stage and is looking to engage with interested parties to further refine the framework ahead of tender documents being released later this year.
WPA encourages anyone interested in tendering to register their interest with LHC via the eTendering portal, and also to register to take part in one of three briefing webinars being held on Wednesday 28, Thursday 29 and Friday 30 July.
