Introduction to the Framework

The new Retrofit and Decarbonisation Framework (N9) will be the successor to LHC's successful Energy Efficiency Measures & Associated Works (N8) Framework which expires November 2024.

The framework has been designed to support clients with delivering a range of energy efficiency and decarbonisation works helping them with their journey to achieving net carbon zero and improving the EPC ratings of their stock.

With over 30 years experience delivering energy efficiency and retrofit solutions to the public sector, we held our Tender Briefing webinar on the 9th of May, if you missed it you can now re-watch the full webinar to the right.

Join LHC in shaping tomorrows net zero future.

LHC retroFIT FOR a net zero FUTURE

LHC Procurement Group hosted the ‘Retrofit for a net zero future’ conference in Birmingham on 28th February where, along with our event partners, we discussed the challenges facing the sector in decarbonising the UK's existing built environment.

In addition, we looked at how the sector can work towards delivering a net zero future and the role that our Retrofit and Decarbonisation (N9) framework can play in aiding public sector organisations overcome these challenges.
