John Rowan and Partners secure place on £500m LHC framework

Marking a positive start to the year, John Rowan and Partners has won a place on the £500m LHC framework, which runs until January 2028.

This is the third major consortium win for the company in just 12 months. During 2021, John Rowan and Partners was also appointed to the major South East Consortium (SEC) and Communities & Housing Investment Consortium (CHIC) frameworks.

LHC – formerly known as the London Housing Consortium – is a not-for-profit organisation owned by housing authorities across London and aims to bring buyers and suppliers together to build, refurbish and maintain social housing and public property more efficiently and cost effectively, to benefit the local community.

We’re very pleased to have been awarded a place on this new framework, and it marks a fantastic start to our 40th year in business,” commented Ken Morgan, John Rowan and Partner’s Head of public sector and asset management.

It presents us with wider access to a whole range of clients, and the opportunity to play a key part in the next decade of decarbonisation in the housing sector. We’re looking forward to sharing our best practice experience and expertise across everything from building safety and data digitalisation, through to strategic asset management and housing development.”

LSE (part of LHC) acting regional manager Ethan James said: “This is the first time we have offered a framework like this to our region…Bidders were evaluated based on scenarios reflecting real life situations that clients would encounter… In that way we can increase equal opportunity, reduce barriers to entry for smaller businesses, and appoint companies with diverse leadership and workforces that reflect the regions and communities that the framework will serve.”
