Wates Construction Midlands and North managing director Phil Harrison said: “Since our appointment to the empa Intermediate framework in 2009, we have delivered a range of works across the region and we have worked in partnership with Scape to ensure this work has brought with it a boost to the regional economy through local subcontractor engagement. We look forward to continuing our relationship with Scape to provide public sector clients with true value for money.”
