The social housing maintenance giant is hosting a ‘Meet the Buyer’ event this week to outline opportunities around Waltham Forest where it has £20m of work in the pipeline.
The event, held in partnership with Constructionline, will provide construction professionals with the opportunity to join Wates’ local supply chain network and benefit from upcoming work.
It will take place at the Best Western Plus Epping Forest, 30 Oak Hill Woodford Green, IG8 9NY on Wednesday May 23 from 9am until 1:30pm.
Opportunities are open to small and medium sized subcontractors across a range of trades.
These include: plumbing, electrics, joinery, painting, flooring, tiling and scaffolding, as well as window and door supplying and installing, fire risk assessments and associated remedial works, asbestos surveys and removal, and installers for the undertaking of responsive and voids maintenance.
David Morgan, Managing Director of Wates Living Space, said: “It is a critical priority for our business that we engage local supply chain partners, the benefit of which can be seen in the local employment and training opportunities that it generates.
“Appointing local businesses in Waltham Forest will ultimately ensure that the money invested in these regions remains here and that the local economic impact of our work brings a lasting legacy to the community.”
The event is expected to be in very high demand. Please register to attend in advance here
