Triple Promotion Announcement

The first of our #MIPIM2024 Announcements. We are delighted to make this Triple Promotion Announcement... it is well + truly deserved! Keep pushing on.

Project Four Teams Up With Place For MIPIM Debut

“It has been a long time coming for Project Four,” said managing director Alan Robson about taking his company to the international property conference for the first time.

Robson is a MIPIM veteran himself, having attended the event multiple times before he created Project Four Safety Solutions. MIPIM, he pointed out, is a great place for networking and can contribute to a business’s growth plans.

“MIPIM is the next step in our growth and profile-raising plans within the North West and wider UK property markets and will support our new directors and offices in Scotland and London,” Robson said.

It is also a prime spot to share Project Four’s expertise in the Building Safety Act, he added.

The decision to attend MIPIM, which will be held 12-15 March 2024, was cemented after the Project Four Team had a successful UKREiiF experience in Leeds.

“We went all out at UKREiiF and got a lot from it,” Robson said.

In attending MIPIM, Project Four has chosen to partner with Place North West to help Robson and fellow director Max Meadows maximise the opportunities available in Cannes.

“Project Four has done some great work with Place North West over the last few years and we can see how Place will help us make the most of the MIPIM experience – not just for the few days in Cannes, but with our pre- and post-conference strategy,” Robson said. “Plus, we want one of the Place North West baseball caps.”

Dino Moutospoulos, managing partner and head of commercial at Place North, said: “We are delighted to continue our recent video work with Project Four by showcasing their expertise at MIPIM.

“Alan, Max, and the team have been leading the conversation on risk and fire management for some time and this sector is in for a lot of focus in the coming months and years,” Moutsopoulos continued.

“Place is proud to call Project Four a Place MIPIM Partner and to help them spread their advice that ultimately helps improve the built environment and protect lives.”

Place is offering a variety of bespoke business development and thought leadership opportunities at MIPM. These include boat charters, event sponsorships, and video commentary services.

You can hear more about Place’s MIPIM offerings at our MIPIM preview event on 12 September. Held at WSP’s office on First Street in Manchester, this event will include regional leaders as well as officials from RX, the organiser of MIPIM. If you are interested, please contact

Place North is already working on MIPIM strategies with clients and partners Together, Net Zero UK, Euan Kellie Property Solutions, Morgan Sindall Construction, JMW Solicitors, Luma Marketing Realty Management, and Marketing Manchester.

This isn't just a job; it's a long-term move. Take your time, understand the role, scope, expectations. We're patient, and we're committed to success. Things will evolve and where you start will look very different in 1, 3, 5 years! This isn't a process we can rush, and we like to discuss, plan, and thrash out all potentials/objectives etc. some appointments have taken 6-12 months, but have worked successfully + continue to flourish at P4. The talent we seek may not be immediately ready to move - personal commitments (paternity, exams, financial etc.) and could take several months to nail down.

We view recruitment + talent search as an ongoing process, not a reactive one - happy to chat in confidence at any time.

Ready for a career where your potential finds its true home? Contact P4 today!

See what the team says:

Karen Benson (Office + Support Team Lead)

I’ve worked alongside Alan and Max from the beginning of P4 and have been fortunate to see it flourish and grow over the years. My role has evolved immensely, and the learning and growth gained has allowed me to develop and enhance my skills and contributed to my job satisfaction. Yes, the workload is heavy, but I can deal with this as I feel supported, well looked after, motivated and appreciated. It helps that the people I work with are great, good fun and supportive, I couldn’t imagine working anywhere else.

Dave (Advisor): retrained from Jaguar Land Rover

After 10 years working in various roles at Jaguar Land Rover and having completed the NEBOSH General Certificate, in May 2020 I made the leap to join P4 and take up my first role in Safety.

The factory environment was all I had known so to be tasked with working from home amid the pandemic took some getting used to. Thankfully, the environment was ideal. A close-knit team who ensured the transition was seamless. All whilst working in a fast paced, often reactive industry. Safe to say, there’s never a dull day.

Steven (Senior Advisor)

Initially, I was sceptical about re-joining a "consultancy" as work-life balance is usually non-existent when a consultant, however I couldn’t have been more wrong due to the autonomy and trusting ethos within the business.

From day one I have felt part of the team, and in my time here so far, it’s been great to see the company grow year on year. The overall approach to both delivery and continual personal development is first class and like non-I’ve experienced before and that’s credit to the team here at Project Four.

Alan (MD):

It’s not always pretty, but we work hard, are committed to personal growth, work life balance. I like to finish early on a Friday, I don’t apologise for that. +44(0)7786447777 (text, whats app, call, email anytime).

Monthly Team Meeting

Once a month, we convene as a team to gather, share meals, and engage in recreational activities. In September, we relished our time together, showing support for the local charity, Papercup Coffee Project, and embarking on a tour of the iconic World Famous Liver Building.

P4 Providing BSA + CDM Support To The Healthcare Sector

P4 possesses extensive expertise in the healthcare industry, and as part of our continuous commitment to foster and motivate the sector to enhance their knowledge and skills related to the Building Safety Act of 2022, we have developed the presentation above.

Here’s what you need to know about the Building Safety Act Secondary Legislation

It has been little over a week since the Building Safety Act was fully implemented in England – and, with it, a slew of changes to the rules for higher-risk buildings, writes Max Meadows of Project Four Safety Solutions.

While there is a lot of information to take on board, the new regulations are more of an improvement on existing construction standards, rather than a whole new set of rules. We have said from the early days that the BSA is CDM regulations on steroids, and this holds true. The legislation has a focus on behaviour change and demonstrating compliance, two things the built environment needs to embrace from the top down.

The New Regulations

Take action now to comply with the Building Safety Act and ensure your business is prepared for the new regulations. The time for waiting is over. The Building Safety Regulator is launching, and registration for occupied high-risk buildings is underway. Don't be left behind. Embrace the changes and prioritise competence and building safety. Let's work together to prevent future tragedies.

Key Insights

Stay ahead of the upcoming changes in the Building Safety Act with these key insights. Important dates include the opening of registration for existing high-rise residential buildings in April, and the introduction of Gateway 2 and Gateway 3 in October. Start by ensuring compliance with CDM 2015 and appointing duty holders with the necessary skills and knowledge. Develop a robust design risk management and health and safety file from day one. Stay informed, engage with building control bodies, and collaborate with operators for effective handover.

Building Safety Act 2022

The Building Safety Act 2022, a response to the Grenfell tragedy, will bring significant changes to the building safety system in England. The act will impact all stages of construction and introduces three gateways with specific requirements. The Building Safety Regulator will enforce the act, and early engagement is encouraged. Compliance and understanding of obligations under existing regulations are crucial. Stay informed about subordinate legislation and prepare for the journey to full compliance.
