Contractor Novus Property Solutions has appointed Adrian Honeywell as its new Head of Safety, Health, Environment and Quality (SHEQ).
Adrian has over 20 years’ experience as a senior health and safety professional in the construction industry including roles at Wrekin Construction, Nationwide Safety Services, May Gurney and Interserve Construction. During this time he has led health, safety and environment functions on frameworks for reactive and planned works, capital programme works and new-build developments.
At Novus, Adrian will report into chief executive Alan Nixon and work with the company’s senior leadership team to devise and implement a long term SHEQ strategy.
Novus has 27 offices across the UK with clients in the social housing, education, healthcare and hotel and leisure sectors. As well as leading the contractor’s nine-strong SHEQ team, Adrian’s appointment is designed to cement Novus’s health and safety and environmental performance on projects – maintaining its track record while also improving the SHEQ support to operational teams and the wider business.
Alan Nixon, chief executive of Novus Property Solutions, said: “Health and safety has always been a business priority for us and as a contractor that works in live environments that are often sensitive, delivering great quality outcomes while ensuring the safety of everyone on our sites is imperative for both us and our clients.
“This new role combines these business support functions – helping us to achieve high performance standards while exceeding client expectations. Adrian’s experience at some of the largest players in the sector and his track record of helping build SHEQ into organisations’ cultures means he’s perfect for the role.”
