Frameworks enable us to operate to our core strengths; working in partnership, helping clients achieve their vision for a project and providing the highest degree of cost and programme certainty at the earliest opportunity.
As leaders in the education sector, Wates have delivered 76,000 school places in the last four years. We work across the education spectrum, delivering programmes that alleviate demand for primary school places through to state of the art secondary schools. Our track record also includes projects at the very forefront of government policy – Wates delivered the first Priority School and the first University Technical College.
Wates operates according to the values of the Wates family; integrity, teamwork, intelligence, performance and respect for people and communities. This means we always seek to have a positive impact on the communities in which we operate and firmly believe in creating training and employment opportunities for young people. We have been awarded the Community Mark by Business in the Community and the Queen’s Award for Enterprise for our commitment to sustainable development.
With a £1billion turnover, Wates are one of the largest Construction Companies operating within the UK and have managed to grow and remain profitable throughout the downturn. This provides our customers and supply chain with certainty of delivery and assurance that Wates will be here for the long term.
