New fit-out framework with DWP
We have been appointed to the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) Taxi Rank Framework for fit-out projects ranging from £3m up to £10m across Northern England, Scotland, and Wales.
Work will be allocated through a ‘taxi rank’ model, with Wates carrying out a series of life cycle and capital works projects including reconfigurations and relocations for the DWP’s premises portfolio.
We have previously undertaken work for the DWP through its four-year Lifecycle Works Framework, including a lift refurbishment programme across 30 operational sites, which completed in 2022.
This appointment helps us to build on our relationship with DWP. We are committed to increasing our public sector projects through the framework, dedicating the next 30 months to the customer pipeline and carrying out the highest standard of fit-out works across the country. We have already secured projects in Northern England, Scotland and Wales and I look forward to announcing further details on our project allocation later in the year.”
