Wates offers work to Lincs firms

Published:  13 September, 2012

LINCOLNSHIRE: Contractors are being invited to become part of a major regional supply chain and work on a range of construction projects in the area.

Wates Living Space is holding a series of Meet the Buyer informal interviews in order to offer smaller local contractors the chance to offer their services and join Wates' framework of suppliers for new-build and refurbishment housing contracts in Lincolnshire.

A range of different trades are required, such as those specialising in joinery, brickwork, plastering, landscaping, metalwork, tiling, plumbing, painting, flooring, groundwork and scaffolding.

The Meet the Buyer event is taking place at the Bentley Hotel in South Hykeham on Thursday 25 October. Interested parties are asked to complete and return an expression of interest form by Friday 28 September 2012 to be considered for an interview slot. This can be accessed on www.eventbrite.co.uk/event/3854757684 

Specific times will be allocated and sent to interested contractors in advance.

Joanne Jamieson, regional managing director for Wates Living Space commented: "It is now more important than ever that local contractors and SMEs are able to benefit from construction and regeneration projects. This Meet the Buyer event will enable us to use our presence in Lincoln to benefit local trades and will allow us to identify strong local partners who can support our aim to deliver a great quality service to tenants and our clients."
