Why Wates?

Wates is one of the UK’s largest private construction companies. With revenues of £1bn+ the company is going from strength to strength.

In 2009 Wates Group was named Major Contractor of the Year by Building magazine, alongside Sustainability Contractor of the Year, Sustainability Champion of the Year and Paul Drechsler was named Chief Executive of the Year.

Now to go alongside their awards, they have a dynamic new web presence. Built using Drupal we’ve, just launched their main Group website after months in our development pipeline.

Working with our partner Ferrier Pearce’s design, the site is built to emphasise Wates’ industry leading activities through the use of video, project stories, slideshows and authored thought leadership pieces. There is a huge variety of content stored within the CMS system we developed, all editable by Wates themselves and accessible to you the user via our unique “live search” feature.

Commenting on the new site, Wates Head of Communications, Belinda Murray said of the Catch and Ferrier Pearce team: “I just wanted to let them know how much we appreciated their marvellous help, support, enthusiasm, whip cracking and spectacular creativity in producing our beautiful new website. It was a huge task and they were great partners to work with.”
