We create value by turning great ideas into practical and economic construction solutions. We have national capability in new build and refurbishment, with a proven supply chain in place.  Complex projects are handled by highly experienced project teams, with exceptional leaders who communicate clearly with all stakeholders.

We manage out risk through effective cost planning, design management, supply chain integration and strong management.  Our in-house engineering team resolves complex engineering challenges with confidence, and works seamlessly with our site teams. Specialist fit-out capability, with extensive experience in live environments, means that sensitive locations are smoothly handled and tight security arrangements are easily
adhered to.

We are passionate about safety – with an industry-leading target of zero reportable accidents by 2012.  The construction industry has followed our lead in terms of waste management solutions, with 84% of non-hazardous re-directed from landfill in 2008. We are actively working towards a target of zero non-hazardous waste to landfill by 2010.

Wates is focused on developing long term relationships with customers to deliver ever greater value.

But don’t just take our word for it. 

"The completed building speaks for itself, fully let with discerning Tenants. Land Securities is extremely impressed with how the relationship has developed throughout the project’s life."
