Wates is building 41 new homes on the Putney site across seven blocks with work due to be completed in early 2023.

Winchmore has now been confirmed as the main brickwork contractor following a string of successful projects in the area with Wates.

The north London based specialist will work alongside suppliers including ACS Stainless Steel Fixings, CPI Euromix Mortars and Frixos Metalworks.

Winchmore and managing director Tony Yianni are strong supporters of industry training and apprenticeships through its “Lead by Deed” programme.

The company works with colleges across the capital and south east and has already delivered more than 1,000 apprentice working days this year.

Yianni said: “London needs to develop a larger pool of quality bricklayers and we as a company are doing what we can to encourage new recruits and training initiatives.

“Our Lead by Deed programme shows that companies can work in the right way to provide greater insight and opportunity for candidates in our great trade.”

By

The framework will run for four years and allow public sector bodies to speed-up procurement for rail, nuclear, bridges, roads, maritime, water, and power projects.

Jason Stapley, managing director at Pagabo, said: “Other areas that will be covered by this new framework ensure that those projects procured through it over the coming years are working towards tackling the climate crisis.

“This includes both tackling the impact of the climate emergency we are facing through flood alleviation projects and working towards net zero carbon targets using alternative fuels and developing greener travel infrastructure.

“This is the first Pagabo framework that Queen Elizabeth Hospital, Gateshead, will be acting as the contracting authority for, so we’re really looking forward to working with them to bring this new offering to the market.”

The Civils and Infrastructure Framework will feature five lots, covering value bands of up to £30m and above.

Each lot will feature six regional and national firms, along with three reserve contractors.

Stapley added: “Innovation is at the heart of everything we do at Pagabo, so this will be truly embedded into this latest framework offering, considering emerging technologies and project controls. Ensuring that our clients have a joint approach with contractors will bring forth these technologies and innovative methods of construction, allowing for quicker, simpler and smoother delivery of projects for clients.”

An engagement session will be taking place on 23 June at 10am. Click here to register to attend.

Anderson will be responsible for all groundworks and infrastructure including drainage, water management, carriageways and footways on The Parklands site which will eventually contain  2,500 three- and four-bedroom homes.

The company has also been awarded the groundworks for phase three of a 160-home Hopkins Homes development at the former Needham Market quarry.

Andrew Nowosad, Associate Commercial Director of Construction at Anderson, said: “A huge amount of hard-work and effort has gone into securing future workload to the wider business.

“This has been a very challenging year for the industry, but the building sector has bounced back bigger and stronger than ever before which bodes well for the wider economy.

“A rise in new construction work across the country has seen our output in the industry reach its highest level since January 2020.

“This has been a superb few months for our business and both the Parklands project and the Needham market development are very exciting to be involved in.”

Anderson secured the first phase of the Parklands development in September 2020. The second phase will take the order value for the whole Great Wilsey development close to £20m.

Nowosad added: “Both projects clearly demonstrate the importance of securing the first phase on multi-phase developments, which then present opportunities as subsequent phases come on stream.

“I would like to congratulate the whole team for securing these key additions to existing projects following the continued hard work from the site teams in maintaining our excellent reputation.”
