Wates FM has worked on behalf of the University of Leeds since 2011, providing building maintenance services (both planned preventative maintenance and reactive repairs) alongside projects at Selside Outdoor Centre, the Clinical Sciences Building and the Brenner Building at St James’ University Hospital.
In 2021, building on the strength of the existing relationship, Wates FM was appointed to provide building maintenance at the university’s Centre for Innovation Excellence in Livestock (CIEL) farm and National Pig Centre near Tadcaster. As well as maintenance services, work at Tadcaster Farm includes refurbishment and an emergency call out service. The contract will run for an initial year with an optional annual renewal for four years.
The team’s relentless focus on delivering a service that goes beyond the service-level agreement and key performance indicators has enabled the relationship with Leeds University to flourish over a decade.
