Companies were assessed for compliance with OJEU regulations and tendered for the framework by Pre-Qualifying Questionnaire (PQQ).
Overall Sovereign were consistently higher scoring in the upper quartile of all areas; “This is yet another fantastic achievement for the company and we look forward to working with the LHC on The C7 Framework”, said Managing Director Frances Austin.
Sales Director John Park-Davies, who received the C7 Framework agreement from LHC Director John Skivington added “As one of the longest serving companies with the LHC our appointment to this framework demonstrates our commitment to offering value for money and technical competence to servicing the public sector.”

The framework contributes to LHC’s comprehensive range of quality window and door frameworks that includes aluminium, PVC-U and timber window and door solutions for public sector building refurbishment.
The framework structure has been carefully reviewed and we have made adaptions to suit our clients’ needs.
