North West Construction Hub | Wates

The North West Construction Hub, or NWCH, is a framework of contractors serving the North West, specifically Cumbria, Lancashire, Greater Manchester, Merseyside, and Cheshire, of which Wates Construction is a member.

The framework’s suite of pre-approved contractors exists to ease the process of commissioning new projects at all stages. A streamlined and collaborative tendering process which is OJEU compliant, procurement can take place from RIBA stage 0 through to 4. Quick and efficient the rigorous pre-qualification process has already been undertaken, enabling appointment within six weeks if required.

Further, NWCH’s longstanding relationship with each of it’s framework contractors ensures a best-fit between contractor and client for each project. To date, the framework has produced 356 projects with a value of £1.75bn.

Of those 356 projects, 98% were completed either on time or early, 98% were completed on or under budget. As such, 64% of all the NWCH’s work to date has been with repeat customers.

The NWCH framework is made up of three bands based on project value: High (£9m+) Medium (£2m-£9m) and Low (£500k-£2m). Wates Construction sits across all three bands.
