Keith Blizzard, head of HCR’s construction and engineering team, has been chosen as a trustee for the Chartered Institute of Building (CIOB). He joins 15 others on the Board, responsible for setting policy and raising standards in the construction industry.
Keith, who is a chartered construction manager and non-solicitor partner at HCR, brings a wide range of skills and considerable experience across the sector to his role both in the firm and for the CIOB. He is also a chartered quantity surveyor, chartered arbitrator and panel adjudicator, and his experience and expertise has led him to teach construction management and construction law at several universities.
Of his appointment, he said: “I am very honoured to be appointed to an organisation that represents the best in construction management worldwide; I will serve for three years, and have been appointed as a trustee champion for Asia, including China, Hong Kong, Singapore and Malaysia, so I shall be keeping in touch with member committees in those countries.
“This is a very prestigious position to hold within the industry, and I’m looking forward to supporting the CIOB in its development.”
The CIOB is the world’s largest and most influential professional body for construction management and leadership. It has a Royal Charter to promote the science and practice of building and construction for the benefit of society, and was established in 1834.
