Established in 1966, LHC is a not-for-profit central purchasing body who develop OJEU-compliant frameworks in England, Scotland and Wales delivered through our network of 5 local hubs.
LHC’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 and to benefit the local community.
Our vision is to deliver better buildings and homes that enhance local communities.
LHC has offices and field based staff throughout England, Wales and Scotland. More than 700 public organisations have used our frameworks.
Our clients and suppliers trust in our knowledge and experience, technical expertise, commitment to better homes and buildings, and fast and efficient procurement which delivers financial gains. We made the strategic decision in 2014 to alter our organisational structure.
The localisation agenda of the UK, Scottish and Welsh governments required us to have a greater understanding of our clients’ local aims and needs and this in turn emphasised the importance of having full knowledge of local suppliers.
The approach we’ve taken allows LHC, our core brand, to reinforce its position as a centre of technical and procurement excellence. We invest in technical, regulatory and service expertise and use our knowledge to develop the products our clients across Great Britain need.
Our five local hubs actively contribute to our insights, as knowledge sharing between LHC and the local hubs is constant, in both directions. This process is fundamental to our organisation successfully serving local projects and agendas.
