Wates wins £200m Green Deal work

Published:  30 July, 2013

A team including contractor Wates has won the contract to deliver the £200m Green Deal scheme for local authorities in Newcastle.

The team, led by British Gas, will deliver Green Deal measures to houses in eight local authority areas from September this year.

Much of the retrofit work will go towards fulfilling British Gas’ targets under the Energy Company Obligation, the Green Deal’s sister scheme that delivers energy-efficiency work to low-income households.
