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 creates 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 expected 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 This will also benefit clients, improving their procurement processes and routes, which in most cases are outdated, limited to 1 or 2 contractors.
