The Construction Products Association is pleased to announce that Peter Caplehorn has joined the Association as the new Policy Director and Deputy Chief Executive.
Formerly Technical Director at the award-winning design practice Scott Brownrigg, Peter has been involved in many industry and Government programmes, particularly on the technical and health and safety side of the industry. Peter is the deputy chair of the Building Regulations Advisory Committee (BRAC) and currently chairs CB- (the British Standards Institution’s strategic committee for construction). His main focus recently has been the new CDM Regulations, application of Building Information Modelling (“BIM”) within construction regulations and future building regulations. Peter is a Chartered Architect with 33 years experience and has worked largely in the commercial sector on a range of projects such as offices, housing, schools, industrial plants and airports.
Of his appointment Peter said, “For many years I have worked closely with product manufacturers and the supply side of the industry. I am delighted to be joining the Construction Products Association to further these relationships and support this valuable sector. As a practical designer I understand the need, and also the frustrations, this part of the construction industry faces. I’m looking forward to helping with the challenges and opportunities ahead.
“The Construction Products Association has a preeminent membership with links to government and all significant construction organisations. There are so many areas where we assist the industry for everyone’s benefit. This is a hugely worthwhile role and I am really excited to be driving it forward.”
