We are working with Wolverhampton Homes in a contract worth close to £115m
Beginning in April 2013 this 15-year contract involves the delivery of a programme of full maintenance works across Wolverhampton’s stock of approximately 7,000 homes.
We have also delivered several additional external projects such as Heath Town. This was a three-year, £9.5m project including rooftop extractor fans upgrades, fire risk assessment works, heating, electrical and shower upgrades.
The success of this project led to the Chetton Green refurbishment, where we installed electrical, soil pipe and ventilation systems and fire compartmentation to three tower blocks. As well as fire stopping between flats, replacement of communal fire doors and other associated works.
This was all delivered safely and on time. The refurbishment works also achieved a Gold award from the Considerate Constructors Scheme.
Training and social value
Employment and training opportunities have been provided through the partnership, including:
- More than 200 people in Wolverhampton trained and then employed
- 2,038 training and employment weeks created for local people
- Wates employees have invested over 13,000 hours in support
- Over £700,000 worth of investment in training local people
We were also awarded the City of Wolverhampton Community Excellence Award in 2019 for services to the Community in Wednesfield North.
