Our Business Partners

We are named and partnering with various framework partners as we believe partnering is the most effective method to deliver and exceed key contractual targets, collaborating well and sharing ideas under a no-blame, positive working relationship. Being a framework-nominated contractor gives SER an alternative route to the contractors’ market and help build a strong and efficient working relationship with clients. The umbrella of agreements such as specification, quality, price, and legislation will also provide more stability and ability for SER of purchasing, involving placing one-off orders for recurrent contracts and clients for works by optimising volume-purchasing discounts and minimising repetitive purchasing tasks.

We aim to co-locate with our clients wherever possible as we believe it delivers improved working practices, solving problems quickly under a ‘one team’ approach. Sharing office space and facilities encourages informal discussion and team bonding; jointly we take a positive approach without a blame culture. This means that we will be able to work side by side with clients who are already on the frameworks but have not able to procure directly with SER Contractor due to contracting restrictions and existing framework.

LHC- WH2 – Whole House Refurbishment and Associated Works

In terms of existing procurement routes that can be used, we are currently partnering with London Housing Consortium (LHC) Framework under WH2 – Whole House Refurbishment and Associated Works between £250k and £2M across most London and South East areas.

Being the top marked contractor on LHC framework reduces the bureaucracy associated with these restrictions and create the ease of opportunity for further discussions and business meetings towards procurement and completion of projects. In time this will streamline the process and make it easier for all parties to achieve results.

Additionally,    we work closely with our clients to meet strategic goals and aspirations for their contracts. We are also in regular contact and with various housing organisations and councils, attending numerous conferences and ‘Meet the Buyer’ events to promote ourselves as a business. This opens up the opportunity for us to be able to expand and promote the framework at the same time. We commit to a partnering charter, setting goals and defining clear responsibilities for all partners and holding joint partnering workshops, conferences and other networking events where frameworks can again be widely promoted. This will also benefit clients improving their procurement processes and routes, which in most cases are outdated, limited to 1 or 2 contractors
