Leading affordable housing maintenance provider, Wates Living Space and national contractor and developer, Wates Residential have been named on four key lots of Camden Council’s four year £620m Property Works Framework.
The framework, which runs until 2024, and will cover thousands of properties across the borough as well as sites in neighbouring Islington. It replaces Camden’s Better Homes and Construction Framework, to which Wates was appointed in 2016. However, the Group’s partnership with the council dates back to 2005 when Wates Living Space first began working on the maintenance and repair of the Camden’s social housing stock.
Under the new framework, Wates will bid for work under following lots:
- Lot one: General building improvement works
- Lot two: Cyclical decorations and repairs
- Lot three: Fire safety upgrades
- Lot seven: New-build and regeneration
Gary Wilkinson, Regional Managing Director, Wates Living Space said:
“We’re proud of our long association with Camden Council and are really pleased to be continuing our partnership through the new Property Works Framework.
“We have delivered key maintenance and repair works at over 33,000 homes across the borough for many years and we look forward to continuing to support Camden and its residents over the coming years.”
Helen Bunch, Managing Director for Wates Residential, commented:
“Our award-winning partnership with Camden Council at Abbey Area saw the completion of over 140 much-needed high quality new homes and the creation of over £3.9m of social value for the local community. This included £61k spent with social enterprises and £24k donated to local causes.
“We look forward to building on this success over the next four years through the delivery of new regeneration schemes across the borough in partnership with the Council and local residents as part of this new Framework.”
