Hazlemere Commercial were first successfully accepted by the London Housing Consortium (LHC) onto their supplier framework to manufacture and install aluminium windows, doors and curtain walling during the early years of this century.
They were first successful in getting onto the LHC A4 framework, and then were subsequently successful in being accepted onto the subsequent A5, A6 and A7 frameworks for the design, supply and installation of double glazed curtain walling, commercial aluminium windows and doors.
The latest recently awarded A7 LHC framework saw Hazlemere Commercial appointed as approved suppliers to all five of the LHC regions it tendered for, namely London, the East of England, the Midlands, South-East England and the South-West.
The LHC is a not-for-profit central purchasing body who develop OJEU-compliant frameworks in England, Scotland and Wales. The London Housing Consortium’s frameworks are available to all publicly funded contracting authorities to procure works, goods and services to construct, refurbish and maintain social housing, schools and public buildings.
Hazlemere Commercial’s Commercial Sales Director Jamie Lewis is on record as saying ““LHC frameworks let us build strong and efficient working relationships with clients.”
The LHC is an umbrella agreement that set out the terms, that include specification, quality, price, quantity, under which individual contracts can be entered into during the lifetime of each LHC framework lifespan (which is normally about 4 years long). Legislation governs the way frameworks are run. Suppliers compete through open competition to be appointed to a framework. Publicly funded contracting authorities then call off individual contracts. This works by a pre-agreed schedule of rates, so both the supplier and customers knows where they stand.
