Wates Residential

Residential construction services and development partnerships with local authorities and housing associations.

Wates Residential

Wates Residential is responding to the needs of its customers by developing mixed tenure housing schemes in partnership with both public and private sector organisations.

Our business covers new-build and partnership housing development activities, reaffirming our long-term commitment to deliver more and better homes; helping to tackle the UK’s urgent need for new housing.

Local authorities and housing associations increasingly recognise the benefit of partnerships with the private sector to meet their development goals. By sharing the risk on planning, construction and market sales, Wates Residential will focus on new house building activities, and drive the transition from being purely a contractor to becoming a national development partner.

Our partnership housing offer involves building and selling homes to the public in addition to, and as part of, providing affordable homes for social landlords, such as local authorities. We operate in true partnership, meaning we can bring financial investment to each scheme, adding value for customers through our development agency and marketing services, in addition to managing the sale of new homes.
