Leadbetter rejoins Recom – Place North West
Construction project management consultancy Recom Solutions has welcomed back Sarah Leadbetter, who becomes head of its healthcare projects team.
This is a new role created to reflect the company’s growing workload in the sector, Recom said.
Leadbetter first joined Recom in 2017 as an associate director from Deloitte Real Estate, where she was an associate director managing major capital projects.
In 2019 she moved to Turner + Townsend as a senior project manager, before being promoted to associate director. In returning to Recom, she will lead on healthcare, supporting clients across the UK.
Recom’s client roster includes Manchester University NHS Foundation Trust and the Northern Care Alliance. Current projects include developing strategies for the delivery of passive fire protection schemes.
Leadbetter said: “RECOM’s culture and alignment with my own aspirations, together with the opportunity to make a difference in such an important sector, made the decision to return to the business an easy one.
“Since leaving in 2019, I have gained further experience working across large-scale, complex projects, and I’m excited to be bringing this knowledge back to RECOM which will assist with the growth of our healthcare offering.”
The firm, founded in 2015 by directors Jason McKnight and Joseph Dillon, undertakes construction project management and main contracting work across sectors including healthcare, education, retail and leisure, commercial and residential.
Recmon also provides consultancy services to assist in the design and delivery of health and safety, sustainability, passive fire protection and cladding projects. The company is an approved contractor under the UK’s Fire Accreditation Scheme (FIRAS) for its fire protection services,.
Earlier this year, Recom acquired a three-storey building on the Waters Edge Business Park, Salford as its new headquarters to accommodate its expanding team, with staff numbers now at more than 30.
The company has secured places on frameworks including NHS Shared Business Services, Fusion21 and Rise.
