Lewis joins SES after a 30-year career with Laing O’Rourke in which he oversaw an array of engineering, plant, joinery, manufacturing and offsite projects both in the UK and the Middle East.
Based at Prism’s offsite manufacturing facility in Huntington in York, Lewis will be responsible for leading the offsite and prefabrication charge at the heart of SES’ £300m national growth strategy.
Jones said: “I’ve been extremely impressed by the whole team, its commercial awareness and the outstanding level of innovation coming from the factory floor.
“Where Prism and SES have truly exceeded is in their ability to transfer those ideas into demonstrable and game-changing time, cost, logistical and safety benefits.”
Lewis will be looking to expand upon Prism’s recent successes such as the creation of a purpose-built ‘onsite offsite’ hub in Rosyth which reduced transport delivery times and costs on the Queensferry Crossing project.
The 60-strong firm has also successfully rolled out of prefabricated service cupboards, incorporating all essential mechanical and electrical plant and equipment, for residential projects at King’s Cross and One Bank Street with Canary Wharf Contractors in London.
