The housing repairs and maintenance company Wates Living Space, a branch of the Wates Group, has been allocated a spot on the Tower Hamlets Block Refurbishment Framework in East London.
The Tower Hamlets framework involves a four-year pipeline which is valued at approximately £40M to £50M over the course of its duration, entailing the facilitation of internal and external planned maintenance across the arm’s-length management organisation (ALMO)’s estate.
Being added to the Tower Hamlets Framework will, essentially, build upon the works which Wates Living Space have already undertaken at the development, involving roof replacement and structural work at Dickinson House in addition to external wall insulation removal and reinstallation at Brewster and Maltings House.
The Managing Director of Wates Property Services, David Morgan stated: “Our position on Tower Hamlets Homes’ framework once again lays testament to our market leading reputation as an expert service provider that is committed to delivering high quality work on behalf of our growing client base.
“As with all of our contracts, our work in Tower Hamlets will see us create many opportunities to engage with our neighbours through training and community initiatives to ensure we are a positive presence in the borough.”
Appointment to this construction framework will see the company build it’s number of projects, and thus also its portfolio, in the nation’s capital, with Wates Living Space having recently achieved a 20-year partnership with the Clarion Housing Group to provide planned housing maintenance across North London.
The Clarion Housing Group partnership covers approximately 19,000 homes across the North of London and is valued at around £15M per year, expanding Wates Living Space’s overall portfolio to somewhere in the region of 500,000 domestic properties.
At the time of this partnerships’ confirmation in July, Mr Morgan commented: “Adopting a partnership approach is a very effective means of delivering a high quality and seamless maintenance service and Clarion Housing Group are rightly setting the bar very high for the quality of delivery for its customers.
“With a portfolio of over half a million homes across the country, we are experts in undertaking these essential works and doing so with the greatest of care and attention to detail.”
