“From the moment we began working together, I (and my governing body) was struck by the incredibly professional demeanour of every member of the Wates team. Our project manager, Callum McLean, is the driving force behind the prompt and effective management of the project. The warm and friendly atmosphere at our regular site meetings has made working with the whole team a delight. I have to say that I am more than delighted with the progress against all timescales and working with Wates remains a complete pleasure.” Mr C Searle, Head Teacher, Worthington Primary School
