Wates FM, the Wates Group’s newly launched facilities management business, has secured a major contract to provide mechanical, electrical and plumbing (MEP) services at 110 Bishopsgate in London, becoming the first appointment since the business re-brand was launched last month.
The contract will see Wates FM deliver MEP services at the 46-storey commercial skyscraper, supporting existing and prospective tenants with operational management on behalf of Heron International.
The appointment marks a significant step in the growth of Wates Facilities Management business and subsequent expansion of the Wates Group’s nationwide FM capabilities in June 2019.
Formerly operating as Wates Smartspace, Wates FM has become part of Wates Property Services alongside the Group’s Living Space business, a move that has seen the two businesses combine their expertise and resource.
James Gregg, Managing Director of Wates FM, commented:
“Our appointment to deliver MEP services at 110 Bishopsgate marks the largest FM appointment and is the first in our exciting new journey as Wates FM. The scale and quality of the services required for the contract reflect the high standards of delivery we are committed to providing.
We have engaged closely with our client at 110 Bishopsgate to understand the challenges within this landmark building and this collaborative approach will be maintained throughout the contract’s duration to enable our team to build and deliver a building strategy of unrivalled standards.”
Wates FM currently manages over 350 commercial properties, delivering services including statutory compliance, cleaning, security, catering, porterage, front-of-house, help desks and computer-aided facilities management (CAFM), as well as critical systems, mechanical and electrical and building fabric maintenance through a mix of site based and mobile teams.
