Consortium Procurement Construction (CPC) is a partnership between LHC and Northern Housing Consortium (NHC) 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.
As a non-profit organisation, we return a surplus (dependant upon CPC generating a surplus) to our clients contracting authorities, to support social value initiatives to support our local communities in the North of England.
We’re seeking applications from all Local Authorities, Social Landlords, ALMO’s and Tenant Management Organisations to nominate one of their housing schemes to have energy efficient surveys carried out between November and March 2021. CPC’s community benefit fund will arrange this free energy efficiency stock condition survey to be carried out on a scheme of your choice that will help you identify the energy efficiency measures required on the buildings/households to bring it up to meet current government decarbonisation targets .
The results of this survey can then be used to apply for the new Green Homes Grant and if the grant does not fund all of the works, CPC will also consider on a case by case basis to fund the improvements through our Community Benefit Fund.
The CPC Community Benefit Fund has been put in place for the community groups across the North of England & The Midlands. Each year, we set a % of our income to give towards community projects. When deciding a new project, we aim to target broad areas of need, from skills training to providing facilities to young people in deprived areas. For 2020, we chose the Green Homes Grant.
Consortium Procurement Construction provided a fast and efficient procurement framework solution for Northumberland County Council’s first-ever building project utilising the latest innovations in offsite construction.
Through CPC's Schools and Community Buildings (SCB2) framework, a new state-of-the-art Degree Apprentice Centre was built for students, which consisted of a three-storey building with an IT Teaching Lab, small amount of meeting rooms, nine teaching rooms, open plan break out area and a ground floor science lab.
