Window and door suppliers named on £66 million public sector framework

SWPA is the South West hub of LHC, we work together to provide procurement solutions for better buildings, homes, and communities. 

Window and door suppliers have won places on a new £66 million national framework to supply the public sector are announced today! 

The PVC-U and Timber Windows and Doors framework from not-for-profit public sector construction framework provider LHC covers manufacture, supply and installation of PVC-U, timber and aluminium-clad windows and doors to all public sector organisations including local authorities, social landlords, NHS trusts, and the education sector. 

Live from 1 August 2022 until 31 July 2026, the new framework is worth up to £30 million in Scotland, £20 million in England and £16 million in Wales, and 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. 

Dean Fazackerley, Head of Technical Procurement at LHC, said: 

“While PVC-U remains a core product and choice for many, sustainability requirements are making timber and aluminium 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% carbon emissions reduction in domestic buildings and 27% 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. This new Windows and Doors framework 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.” 

The appointed companies to the framework in the South West are: 

  • Nationwide Windows Limited 
  • SER Contractor Limited 
  • Solar Windows Limited 
  • Sovereign Group Limited 
  • Specialist Building Contracting Limited 


The framework features three workstreams, covering:

  • Manufacture, supply and installation of PVC-U Windows and Doors
  • Manufacture, supply and installation of Timber Windows and Doors
  • Manufacture, supply and installation of Aluminium Clad Windows and Doors
