Established over 120 years ago, Wates is a family run business with a proven track record in core public sector markets. Their drive to be a partner of choice delivers the best outcomes for projects across the UK.

Supported by McLaughlin and Harvey as delivery partner for Scotland and Northern Ireland, they inspire better ways of creating buildings that are eye catching, functional and sustainable. This is demonstrated by their extensive experience in delivering education, custody, heritage, civic offices, leisure, defence, housing and industrial projects.

A leading light in social value creation, sustainable construction and community enrichment, the team at Wates will give you the right advice for your project, when you need it.

They will ensure that your project is delivered locally and working in true partnership with you, they will actively seek out new ways to unlock further value from your project.

Together with our teams, Wates can help you to find inspiring ways to create the places, spaces and communities of tomorrow.

Wates is excited to be extending our relationship with SCAPE onto the Construction framework, an appointment we see as the realisation of our ambition to be one of the most trusted partners of government and the public sector in the built environment.

Our engagement process

01 Before you start

We’ll help you to explore your project requirements and help you to identify the framework options available to you, to achieve the very best possible outcomes.

To use any of our direct award frameworks, a simple form called an Access Agreement is required. It only needs to be signed once, it carries no cost or commitment, and allows you to use any of our current or future frameworks.

Access our Frameworks

02 Inception

At this point, we’ll be with you as you start to build a relationship with your Wates team.

We’ll help you to understand the SCAPE process and we’ll be with you every step of the way, to give you any advice or training that you need and to get your project started with confidence.

03 Feasibility

Wates will work closely with you and your team, holding in depth discussions and workshops to make sure they fully understand your project aspirations, including timescales and budget.

We’ll also be with you at every step of the way, ready to give you guidance or support throughout this process.

The information collected from these discussions will be collated into your free feasibility study.

04 Preconstruction

At this stage, you’ll be ready to enter into an agreement with Wates. This will set out the defined services to complete the pre-construction phase.

At the end of this process, you’ll receive a 100% market tested cost plan, including a fully identified local supply chain.

05 Construction

When you are ready to move to the construction phase, you’ll enter into a Delivery Agreement which will formalise your partnership with your Wates team.

Our teams will continue to be on hand to support you throughout the delivery of your project, monitoring performance and together we’ll ensure that your project is delivered to the highest possible standard.
