Wates Wins Yorkshire Building Society FM Contract
20 July 2023

Wates has won a contract to deliver facilities management services across Yorkshire Building Society’s UK-wide estate.

Worth around £7 million over five years, the contract includes hard FM and compliance services across Yorkshire Building Society’s (YBS) property portfolio. The contract will be managed by a  team of nine, supported by a national mobile team alongside key supply chain members.

Commencing in August 2023, the contract includes FM services at 110 YBS branches, 120 agency sites, the building society’s Bradford headquarters, three main offices in Leeds, Peterborough and Huddersfield, and its Yorkshire data centre.

This is the first time Wates has worked for YBS and significantly grows the Group’s project pipeline in the banking sector, which is worth over £50 million a year. 

Antony Collett, Managing Director of Wates’ FM business, said: “We are really excited to be working with Yorkshire Building Society for the first time. We can already see that our working relationship will be collaborative, something that we will really embrace as we look for new ways to get the very best out of YBS’ estate and its assets.”
