We believe in demonstrating to our customers every day that there are many, many great reasons to choose Wates. Why work with Wates? Because…
We deliver in exceptional ways on every project, for every customer – way beyond the traditional remit of a contractor.
We succeed with our customers – our focus on your needs, expectations and priorities means that together we are a powerful partnership.
We create value – relentlessly. All our thoughts and experience are trained on how we can get more value for you out of the project you are embarking on.
We lead by example – if the industry is going to move forward, fix some of its problems and help improve the built environment in the UK, companies like us need to lead the way. And we do.
We connect with the communities we serve – we work in some of the most vulnerable areas of society and deep in our DNA is a belief that a building project creates opportunities to make life better.

Wates is one of the most financially secure companies in the construction sector. We have significant liquidity, no reliance on external funding and no toxic assets.
Secure employment is at the heart of sustainable communities. At a time with increasing unemployment especially with young people, businesses have a greater role to play in society.
