Wates Construction wins £162m Wembley Park deal

Wates has been awarded a £161.5m contract by Quintain to build 633 homes at Wembley Park.

Quintain said the twin plots were the largest awarded to Wates on a single site and took the total number of contracts handed out by the developer to £1.7bn.

The deal follows Wates’ recent appointment by LCR to deliver buildings one and four of the £135m Axis Square development in Birmingham (pictured).

Wates will work on the 1.68 ha office project alongside Turner and Townsend, which is providing delivery services for the job.

The first stage of Wates’ work will see the contractor deliver a preconstruction services agreement and work with LCR to develop a final design.

Work on the scheme’s first phase will begin in April 2019, with Wates contracted to deliver the full construction programme once the project begins.

Wates Construction business unit director for the Midlands John Carlin said: “This appointment is a real coup for our Midlands staff, and we are very much looking forward to working with LCR and the whole Turner & Townsend team to develop and deliver a commercial scheme of unparalleled quality.

“Our work on these two buildings will give us the opportunity to make a huge contribution to employment and training in Birmingham, and we will be working closely with our partners to ensure the benefits of this project are felt far and wide across the region.”

Galliford Try announced yesterday it had won the contract to build a £43m residential project in the centre of Birmingham.
