Wates Facilities Management has been appointed to the four-year Constructing West Midlands Framework (CWM2), managed by Acivico, under lot 2, mechanical and electrical and maintenance services.
The framework, which is valued at approximately £3 million a year, will provide public sector clients across the West Midlands with access to specialist support for property repairs and maintenance works through an efficient procurement process.
James Gregg, managing director of Wates FM, said: “We will take a joint approach with our repairs and maintenance business, Wates Living Space, in order to draw upon a local supply chain, maximise our investment in the community and maintain our commitment to the city’s social enterprises.”
Chris Hall, group managing director of Acivico, said the company was undergoing "a considerable transformation programme" and the new contract would “significantly enhance and strengthen our projects capability”.
Wates FM currently manages more than 350 commercial properties, delivering services including statutory compliance, cleaning, security, catering, porterage, front-of-house, help desks and computer-aided facilities management, as well as mechanical and electrical and building fabric maintenance through a mix of site-based and mobile teams.
