Contractors sought for windows and doors framework for public sector projects
We are looking to engage with suppliers to gather their thoughts and requirements for the new iteration of our Windows and Doors (WD1) framework. WD1 is popular framework that has supported over £22M worth of projects. With developing sustainability requirements, we expect an increase in demand over the lifecycle of this next iteration.
Contractors seeking to engage with this new opportunity should register their interest and get involved in our early market consultation before the framework is issued later this year.
The windows and doors framework – which provides PVC-u products (U11) and timber products (T5) as individual workstreams within a single framework – will be available to public sector bodies for both residential and non-residential projects.
WD2 will build on the existing framework to offer enhanced product performance in preparation for EESSH2 and net zero standards.
In total, three workstreams are anticipated to be available within the framework: timber and PVC-u windows and doors with enhanced performance options, and a third to cover aluminium-clad timber windows, which is a new dedicated workstream.
We are hosting 1:1 sessions on the 28th / 29th July for interested suppliers to speak directly to our Technical Support Manager - Graham Collie - to shape the new framework.

We are also encouraging our partner organisations to feed into this framework to ensure it works for them. Similarly, we ask partners to book a 1:1 session on the 28th / 29th July with their dedicated Client Support Manager, Lynsay Logan on the West of Scotland and Alistair Rankine representing the East.
