local authority frameworks

Working in frameworks is beneficial for both customers and contractors. It is all about performance, improvement and transparency. Frameworks are driving improvements in our business and customers are reaping the benefits. Our strengths lie in our flexibility to meet the diverse needs of our customers, and our enthusiasm is delivering against challenging timetables and budgets. Currently around 80% of our work is with repeat customers. This means that from the leadership team to our supply chain, everyone involved on your project with Wates is committed to delivering in exceptional ways, and creating lasting value.

  • We understand procurement processes and use gateways effectively to remove waste and deliver value for money.
  • We adopt a partnership approach to ensure that all the needs of multiple stakeholders can be addressed.
  • Early contractor involvement in the design process minimises waste in tendering and yields efficiencies in both time and resources.
  • The IESE (Improvement and Efficiency South East) framework encourages contractors to share their knowledge, to share their supply chains and to develop specialist expertise in delivering new working practices.
