Speller Metcalfe has successfully been appointed to a new £6bn LHC construction framework, covering new build and refurbishment works for schools and community buildings.

Public sector procurement specialist LHC recently launched the ‘Schools and Community Buildings Framework’, which provides turn-key solutions for any type of building excluding residential. The framework can be used by local authorities, social landlords and other public sector bodies.

Having over 20 years of experience delivering public sector projects, most recently completing the £22 million Stratford Hospital in Warwickshire, Speller Metcalfe has also successfully secured a place on two lots. This encompasses new build and refurbishment projects worth up to £4 million across the Midlands and South West of England as identified by the framework.

Managing Director, Des O’Neill said: “We are delighted to have secured a place on the LHC framework, with the opportunity of delivering projects within our key regions.

“This is our first time on the framework and a chance for us to share our expertise and develop relationships with new public sector clients, as well as existing partners. We look forward to seeing what opportunities this framework will bring.”
