Our Purpose

Our purpose is to deliver better buildings and homes that enhance local communities.

CPC is a partnership designed to offer each organisation’s current and potential new members an unrivalled range of procurement solutions. Through CPC, Northern Housing Consortium’s clients will be able to access LHC’s suite of frameworks.

LHC has regional offices in Edinburgh, Cardiff, Exeter, London and Leeds. Whilst LHC provides the products (frameworks and dynamic purchasing systems) for CPC, Northern England is managed and run by a local team who ensure that the product offering is relevant for the region. CPC was launched in 2019 as a distinct brand from LHC.

LHC and Northern Housing Consortium have a long history of working together based on a shared purpose, values, and complimentary skill sets.

Both organisations have a passion to improve homes and communities through excellent collaborative procurement to deliver benefits to all our clients, however each partner has developed their own specific areas of expertise in this pursuit.

Northern Housing Consortium, through Consortium Procurement, have focused on tenant services and compliance solutions designed to protect residents and property. LHC’s focus is on the fabric of the property as well as new build using modern methods of construction and retrofitting of existing buildings with energy efficiency measures and whole house refurbishments to improve building quality standards.
