Wates wins housing trust recladding work
Southway Housing Trust has awarded a £15m contract to Manchester-based Wates Living Space to refurbish 5,900 homes.
The contract is to replace external cladding, windows, doors and roofs along with carrying out general refurbishment works on houses and cottage flats around the trust's South Manchester estates.
The refurbishment programme is expected to last 19 months from the award of the contract.
This latest wave of work is part of a £107m programme that started in November 2007.
