Home News We’re continuing our 19-year partnership with Hertfordshire County Council with £4.5m contract.

We’ve been appointed by Hertfordshire County Council to carry out a range of planned, reactive, and minor works across the Council’s 1,025 corporate buildings, libraries, fire stations, adult day care centres, youth centres, rural estates, open spaces, and schools.

The contract, valued at £1.5m a year will focus on a planned preventative maintenance approach to the Council’s 83 main buildings and a reactive maintenance service to the remaining estate. Delivered by a team of direct labour operatives and subcontractors, Wates will work in partnership with the Council for an initial period of three years with an option for a further two-year extension.

Typical works delivered on the contract will include minor refurbishments, roofing repairs and replacements, brickwork, carpentry, fencing, underground drainage, high water pressure jetting, guttering repairs and replacements, maintaining Hertfordshire’s extensive and varied building portfolio.

We look forward to continuing our long association with Hertfordshire County Council, helping them ensure the continued safety of their buildings and the people that use them.

We have a longstanding and shared commitment to providing better solutions for our clients. Our commitment extends beyond the delivery of the contract requirements, reflecting their dedication to sustainable operations and the delivery of social value.”

Following a thorough tendering process, Hertfordshire County Council are pleased to announce that we have offered a Measured Term Contract for Build Services of three years, with an extension option of a further two years, to Wates.

The contract is expected to include a range of initiatives including employment for a local apprentice, annual work experience opportunities, and a year-on-year uplift in performance targets, enabling the use of local supply chains and efficient payment processes, aimed at saving costs. We very much look forward to working with the Wates team on future building projects.”
