Our goal is to maximise the benefits new technology and new thinking can bring to our customers

PEOPLE

As our Group proposition states, at Claritas Four Zero we want to do things differently with the aim of ‘creating something that works better – for everyone’.

Achieving this goal has been the prime focus of our CEO Jon Wardle from the very beginning. To achieve it Jon built a team around him who shared his ethos and had the expertise to deliver on the promises we make to our customers.

Our Claritas Four Zero management team comprises Claritas Directors Jon Wardle and Simon Wilkinson, alongside MMC specialists Chris Spiceley and Lee Yeates. Together, we are all excited about what we can achieve as Four Zero embraces every aspect of the Construction 4.0. agenda.

Jon Wardle, CEO

Jon Wardle

Claritas Group CEO

Jon, our CEO, founded Claritas to provide preconstruction and construction management services across multiple sectors. Today, he is leading the Group’s continued evolution – including the launch of Claritas Four Zero – which sees the business at the forefront of the Construction 4.0 movement in the UK. 

Jon has long been an advocate for innovative, MMC construction, believing it can bring multiple benefits to our customers. His participation as a speaker on a number of industry panels is just one way he is encouraging the industry to embrace new technology and new ways of working.

Chris Spiceley

Chris Spiceley

Business Unit Director

As Business Unit Director the responsibility for strategic direction, customer satisfaction, and strong supply chain/partner relationships, starts and stops with Chris. He has delivered significant schemes for major tier one contracting organisations, including the 2015 RIBA Stirling prize winner. However, it’s his time as a developer, consultant, manufacturer and business owner that give him the breadth and depth of knowledge to drive productivity improvements across the whole value chain.

Lee Yates

Lee is the Operations Director for Claritas Four Zero, ensuring preparation, application, diligence and execution across every project. Following his formative years ‘on the tools’ as a carpenter, Lee has worked with major tier one contractors, specialist MMC suppliers, and construction management consultants – constantly broadening his knowledge and experience. Lee brings a pragmatic streak to Four Zero, always asking the important ‘that’s all very well’ questions, that are critical to ensuring the golden thread is maintained on every project – from inception to final completion.
