Our Businesses

Working with private clients on complex and high profile construction projects

Our businesses focus on our key services of construction, residential development and property maintenance.

We also incorporate individually branded, specialist businesses focused on engineering and offsite manufacturing, and on flexible workspaces.

Together, we are one Wates, dedicated to working together to inspire better ways of creating the places, communities and businesses of tomorrow. 

The Wates Group businesses

Our construction business, the largest arm of the Group, works with our partners to create a more sustainable built environment and deliver legacies for the communities in which we work. We deliver complex projects across a range of sectors, including education, residential, healthcare, commercial, and the emergency services. 

Our Developments Group specialises in land, planning, and residential development, securing land and delivering planning consents in urban and sustainable edge-of-settlement locations where new homes are needed. 

Our property services business is a market leader in planned and responsive housing repairs, and zero carbon retrofit services, for public sector landlords and housing associations, providing a broad range of services including fire safety works. We also specialise in the fit-out, refurbishment and management of commercial and business properties across the UK. 

Our residential business is among the leading developers in London, the South of England, and Wales. We work in partnership, investing in local authority partners and housing associations to build high quality, mixed tenure housing schemes. We are driven by the belief that everyone deserves a great place to live.

SES is an award-winning, design-led mechanical and electrical, offsite manufacturing and specialist services provider. Our remit is to promote the adoption of modern methods of construction, wherever possible, and explore innovative technologies to help deliver better and more sustainable projects for our customers.

Needspace provides high quality, flexible and affordable workspaces that meet the needs of all types of business in great locations across London and the South East.
