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

CPC is the North and Central England hub of LHC, we work together to provide procurement solutions for better buildings, homes, and communities. 

Eleven window and door suppliers have won places on a new £66 million national framework to supply the public sector, announced today. Six of which cover the North and Central England

The PVC-U and Timber Windows and Doors Framework (WD2) 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 local authorities, social landlords and other public sector bodies.

Live from 1 August 2022 until 31 July 2026, WD2 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, LHC head of technical procurement, 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. WD2 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 WD2 across North and Central England:

  • Graham Holmes Astraseal Limited
  • 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
