Wates has appointed Dan Sadler as the new offsite manufacturing director of Prism, its Coventry-based offsite manufacturing business.
Sadler was previously operations director for Wates
Construction in the Midlands.
His focus at Prism will be to expand its offering by
developing new innovations that can support greater use of offsite, and other
modern methods of construction, on projects across the country. This
expansion will form part of Wates’ restructured approach to delivering building
services, announced earlier this year.
The Prism business, which last year relocated its
manufacturing facility from York to larger premises in Coventry, has been
a part of Wates Construction since its acquisition of Shepherd
Engineering Services in 2015. Its offsite MEP services have been used on
projects around the country including the Institute for Advanced
Automotive Propulsion Systems (IAAPS) in Bristol, The Royal
College of Surgeons in London and the Wellington Place development in
Sadler joined Wates in January 2019 from NG Bailey and has
worked on major projects including Eden School for Boys in Birmingham, and the Sandwell
Aquatics Centre. He has also been responsible for overseeing the development of
the region’s M&E offering.
Rob Clifford, managing director of Wates Integrated
Construction Services, said: “Dan has made a huge impact on our business since
joining, and his passion for finding new, better ways to deliver building
services is exactly what we look for in all our senior leaders. Prism
represents a huge opportunity to revolutionise construction – not just for
Wates, but for the wider industry. I’m confident that Dan will deliver on its
potential and more, and I look forward to working with him.”
Sadler said: “Offsite technology excites me – it
can deliver projects faster, safer, to higher quality
standards and with added value – particularly relevant to builds
in the public sector.
“Prism already has a long history in delivering offsite
excellence and my main focus will be elevating this even further, as well as
looking at how it can support other modern advancements in
construction and influence our environmental and net zero carbon agenda.
By investing in research and embracing innovation we can help deliver better
buildings, and I look forward to supporting this through my new role.”
