Wates Construction

With a 119 year history, Wates’ financial security and business approach are built on a foundation of family values. This puts us in a unique position to assure you that we have the ability to provide certainty of delivery of a project that is 100% operational, and meets all of your objectives at completion and beyond.

Wates Construction has developed a number of programmes around the pre-construction process, procurement and handover to enhance our offering, increase customer satisfaction and build deeper relationships. These programmes enable us to ensure that we have the right people, with the right skills, in the right place at the right time.

Wates Construction specialises in maximising value by finding the most intelligent and creative ways to deliver outstanding buildings. With many years’ experience, we have developed a real understanding of our customers’ needs and have a proven track record in all our core markets: education, prisons, local authority frameworks, heritage, commercial and mixed-use developments.

As a UK-wide contractor, we offer national delivery through experienced, well-resourced local offices. And as part of a company with £1 billion turnover, we represent trusted financial security and stability in turbulent economic times.
