Project and building consultants, Projex, has made two senior appointments and promoted a third member of its team.
In Solihull, former CIOB construction manager of the year finalist, Adrian Adams, joins from mac-group.com as senior construction manager and Kieran Taylor, who joined in 2018, has been promoted to project surveyor.
Simon Duffy joins the Leeds office as associate director from Mac Construction Consultants and brings over 30 years’ experience in senior roles working for a vast range of clients across hotels, retail, education and public sector.
Adrian is a former CIOB (Chartered Institute of Building) construction manager of the year finalist and joins from mac-group.com where he was a project and divisional director responsible for delivering a range of projects for brands including Rolls Royce, Post Office (135 branch national framework refurbishments) and Warwick University. He also delivered Birmingham Institute of Forest Research (BIFoR) for Birmingham University, a former RICS project of the year and a globally important project designed to investigate the effects of climate change on existing mature woodland.
Kieran joined Projex nearly three years ago and has been working on major projects for one of the UK’s leading logistics and industrial developers, Mountpark, as well as student accommodation for UVee (Urban Village) among others.
Simon’s experience includes the new £11m Trinity Sixth Form College in Halifax as well as the landmark conversion of the old Post office in City Square Leeds into the first serviced apartments in the city with a 6* rating, as well as the ground floor conversion into Restaurant Bar & Grill.
Phil Tomalin, joint managing director at Projex, comments:
“Apart from the very early stages of Covid when building sites were closed, our team has been extremely busy keeping projects moving and on track under unique circumstances and has had to adapt very quickly to new ways of working.
“We needed to strengthen our senior projects team following a number of new contract wins and are delighted that Adrian and Simon decided to join us.
“Kieran has been widely praised by clients for his hard work and attention to detail and this promotion is well-deserved.”
