Wates joins flagship framework
Leading housing maintenance provider, Wates has expanded its framework presence with its appointment to the South East Consortium (SEC) Internal & External Building Works Framework.
Set to run for four years, the framework offers public sector organisations OJEU-compliant access to a range of planned maintenance services, offering customers the options of either mini-tender or direct award.
The appointment has seen Wates Living Space secure positions on five lots under the framework including:
- Lot 1b: Major Refurbishments over £1m
- Lot 2: Kitchens & Bathrooms
- Lot 3: Windows & Doors
- Lot 4a & 4b: Flat & Pitched Roofing
Of these, Wates Living Space ranked first on price and quality combined for Lot 1b, Lot 2 and Lots 4a & 4b. First rank enables clients to appoint Wates Living Space directly without the need for a further competition from the framework.
David Morgan, Managing Director of Wates Property Services, commented:
We are extremely proud to have secured a position on SECs leading framework and to be joining a team that shares in our solutions-driven approach to quality customer care.
The Wates Living Space team prides itself on its commitment to providing friendly, professional and expert services tailored to our clients needs. This ethos underpins everything that we do and we look forward to working in partnership with SEC to deliver an exceptional service to our customers.
Marc Baines, Managing Director of SEC, commented:
Were delighted for Wates and look forward to building a great working relationship with them on behalf of our Members. The outgoing framework saw £111m of contract awards so this is a fantastic opportunity with a new model to see if we can deliver even more savings for the sector and beyond.
Through SECs Internal & External Building Works Framework, customers can save an estimated six months in the procurement of maintenance services. For more information, visit: www.southeastconsortium.org.uk
