From our years of experience working in schools around Tameside and Oldham, we know just how important it is for you to find contractors who you can trust, who will complete the job to the highest possible standard, and who will always be there, whatever you need them for. Whatever kind of job you need completing, from full scale fascia board replacement to simple maintenance upgrades, we pride ourselves on offering a dedicated efficient service, every single time.

We also know how important it is for you to find a fully qualified expert team of maintenance and building contractors who can offer you cost effective solutions to your school’s needs, always delivering on time and on budget.

About Us.....
Stacks Image 1980
With years of experience providing specialist joinery and maintenance solutions across Tameside, W & W focused our business specifically in schools and colleges across Greater Manchester and West Yorkshire, due to the excellent customer satisfaction and continued high demand for our services right across the North West region.

Our expert skills are highly valued because we complete every single job we’re asked to do, big or small, to an exceptional standard. We know exactly what we’re doing, and we know the best contractors for all types of jobs too, so we can organise all your building needs, providing multiple quotes and options, taking out the hassle for yourself and your staff.

We’re different because we’re approachable, friendly and engaging with all members of staff and every pupil, should we be on site during the work we’re currently carrying out. And as well as the full scale building jobs we offer, we also specialise in all those little touches which make your school look brilliant. From making sure a door closes, to cleaning out your gutters, there’s nothing we won’t tackle for you.

Just like the schools across Greater Manchester we work in, we value The 3 R’s as core foundations of our business.

Responsive - Whenever you need us, 24 hours a day, we will always endeavour to be on site within one hour of a phone call, for any emergency situations which may arise. We’ll also do all that we can to work around your schedule, flexible in our working dates to complete essential jobs outside of school hours.

Reputable - We want you to be able to trust us, no matter what, so we take great pride in the reputation of both our work and our team. Our skills are at the highest possible standard, and our appearance will always be one hundred per cent professional, with every member of our team polite, friendly and courteous.

Reliable - Deadlines are as important for building works and maintenance as they are for essays and projects, and we will always deliver our agreed work on time, and to the budget we quote for. We never fail to double check our measurements and requirements so there are no surprises, and will always offer you the most cost effective prices.

As well as all of the above, we’re trusted and valued to work in schools around the North West because we offer complete guarantees on all work and maintenance, all completed to the most comprehensive health and safety standards, always returning to be back on site immediately if any problems should occur.

I was recommended to get in touch with W&W Building and Planned Maintenance Ltd. from another head teacher and now I can see exactly why they came so highly recommended. Ben and Chris are an absolute pleasure to work with, so friendly and polite, and they’ll go out of their way to make things simple and easy, and to get the job done. 

We initially had the team in, after they provided a competitive quote, to replace and upgrade the fascias and soffits around the school, as these were seriously showing their age. They carried this job out extremely efficiently and after that, one thing led to another and we kept throwing jobs at them we’ve wanted to get done for ages, but never gotten around to. 

They installed new doors across the school, constructed custom built cabinets in our classrooms and even built a brand new outdoor shelter for the playground. We then had them arrange a complete reconfiguration of our nursery entrance, to maximise space, construct a new office and prevent parents from dumping their prams in the entranceway. On Friday at 3pm the old entrance was there, by Monday at 9am, it had been completely transformed, as W&W had arranged everything to be carried out and completed perfectly over the weekend. 

They’ll always go out of their way to help out in any way they can, and I’m struggling to see now how we managed without them!

We really cannot recommend them enough.

I cannot recommend highly enough the services from W and W Building and Planned maintenance services. From the very start, the company representatives were punctual, polite and extremely good listeners. They took my vague ideas for integrated storage solutions and designed, constructed and installed purpose built, high quality products that have significantly enhanced our provision.

Adequate storage is the challenge facing many primary schools and in my opinion W and W are by far the most creative solution finders with no compromise on quality and with huge regard for competitive pricing.

The staff were a pleasure to have in school; efficient, tidy workers with cheerful dispositions and endless patience answering the children's constant questions about what they were making!
From design to costing, from construction to installation the service received has been exceptional.

All works have been completed within the agreed timescales and we are absolutely delighted with our bespoke storage units, bookshelves and display boards that have been commissioned.

We are looking forward to seeing the designs for our new teaching walls - our latest project with W and W.
From design to costing, from construction to installation the service received has been exceptional.
