Wates & Biosite – The story so far

Since 2011 Wates has chosen to partner with Biosite to ensure secure and efficient operations at over 100 of their construction sites. This working relationship was formalised in March 2015, with the commitment of a framework agreement.

At the recent £60m Lot 2 – North West Cambridge Development Wates are benefitting from the full range of end-to-end systems and services from Biosite including: a Wates branded cabin fully fitted with turnstiles, media screens in the canteen as well as on site security guards.


“We are delighted to be showcasing our latest technology at Wates Innovation day and look forward to meeting key Wates personnel and networking with providers of innovative initiatives. The introduction of fingerprint-enabled tablets and online site induction at the North West Cambridge Development is a prime example of the way we continually innovate with Wates. I am sure the Innovation Day will be a great success and look forward to a thriving working relationship with Wates over the coming years.”
