Health & safety and CDM consultancy Project Four has recruited Richard Ellis and Andy Black as safety advisers as it enters its third year of operations.
Ellis has joined from architecture and consultancy group AHR, while Black was previously at Jaguar Land Rover. The business, based at Avenue HQ in Liverpool, has also taken on an apprentice in Connor Mcilroy.
Launched in October 2016, Project Four provides construction, design and management advisory services to the construction and industrial sectors and is currently working on developments across the UK worth more than £500m, leading directors Alan Robson and Max Meadows to invest in building their team.
Ellis, who spent 18 years with AHR, has taken on the role of CDM consultant on a wide variety of projects ranging from small to multi-million pound schemes. These include public and private sector schemes involving schools, academies, colleges and universities, hospitals, retail parks, transport hubs, industrial, residential and hotels. He will also work with retained architectural clients.
Black has recently completed a six-month contract providing health and safety support for automotive giant Jaguar Land Rover at its £1.2bn new build factory in Slovakia
Max Meadows said: “The highly specialised and often complex nature of our work means we need to have the best people in our operation and so we are really pleased that Richard and Andy are joining us at Project Four.
“Our pipeline of work is growing all the time and in the coming months we are going to be playing a key role in some of the most high-profile construction projects in the North West.
“Alan and I know Andy well, having worked with him on earlier projects, and we know what he is capable of and what he will bring to our team. Richard has a fantastic pedigree in the CDM field and we are confident he will hit the ground running.”
Project Four clients include Bardsley Construction, Wates, CEG, Baltic Creative, Sheppard Robson and Fletcher Rae.
