We’ve since continued to work with many of the leading local authorities and housing associations keeping Wales very much at the heart of our business. This makes our acceptance onto this framework even more special, as does the synergy between our own business and SEWSCAP in terms of focusing on continuous improvement and best practice. We look forward to working with the SEWSCAP team and framework organisations in the coming months and years.”

Chris McLellan, SEWSCAP Framework Manager adds: “We’re delighted to welcome Ian Williams onto the new renovations lots within SEWSCAP3 as they have a great track record of delivering refurbishment, renovation and maintenance projects across schools, homes and public buildings in Wales.
