New windows and door framework offers procurement solutions

PUBLIC sector specialist procurement consortium LHC Scotland is now offering an expanded range of popular window and door products through the launch of its new TW3 framework arrangement.

LHC’s new Timber Window and Door Products framework provides public sector officers across the country with easy access to high quality materials for use in refurbishment or new-build projects.
Timber windows have been an enduring feature of Scots social housing projects. The new pre-tendered framework arrangement is available through two workstream options – supply and delivery and supply and installation – providing choice of quality, best value timber windows and doors.
Products are offered in standard white paint finish, any other RAL colour, or preservative treatment.
All timber used is from a fully certified chain of custody sources.
Alongside product choices, TW3 offers a technical support service including planning requirements, design advice and regulatory issues. The installation option includes a full survey, programming and fitting through to completion.


Clive Feeney, LHC Scotland Divisional Manager, said, “The new TW3 framework ensures LHC Scotland customers have an extensive and popular choice of windows and doors in PVC-U, and timber, plus composite doors. They can be further assured that all companies will have undergone LHC’s rigorous tendering procedure in line with EU regulations and been selected on best value analysis.
“By using the TW3 framework, procurement officers and specifiers will have access to a wide range of high quality timber products at competitive prices like never before. This may be particularly beneficial where the material choice requirement is specifically for timber – for example, in areas of specific conservation demands.”
Appointed companies will service the TW3 framework arrangement, providing products delivered on a local basis to all local authorities, housing associations and public sector bodies. “We believe this will increase choice and availability for customers, providing them with a real long-term solution,” Mr Feeney added.
Specifiers will have the option of a supply and delivery arrangement or a complete supply and installation package.
