Laing O’Rourke has appointed Adrian Spragg as group head of digital.

He is responsible for ensuring the company’s digital strategy is fully implemented across every aspect of its operations, and its supply chain, design and delivery partners.

He will lead the digitisation of all of the firm’s workplaces, including its UK manufacturing facilities and projects, and will focus on continuing to improve business processes to drive customer value and make all work as efficient, easy, safe and sustainable as possible.

Spragg joins from Accenture, where he was MD of its UK aerospace and defence business. Before that he was maritime sector leader at PwC and earlier in his career led the design team for a nuclear submarine programme with BAE Systems.

Laing O’Rourke group technical director Andrew Wolstenholme, to whom Spragg will report, said: “Adrian is an experienced leader of digital transformation in complex capital programmes, bringing more than 25 years’ experience – predominantly in the aerospace, defence and maritime sectors – to Laing O’Rourke. I am delighted he has chosen to join us and look forward to working with him.”

Spragg said: “Digital will become even more important in construction delivery and I am excited to be joining a company with a long history of innovation and the opportunities for more productive, safer and sustainable buildings and infrastructure.”
