Nick Mead has been appointed as Champion for Modern Methods of Construction (MMC) by the Construction Industry Council (CIC) – the representative forum for the professional bodies, research organisations and specialist business associations in the construction industry.
A former President of the Chartered Institution of Building Services Engineers (CIBSE) Mead is currently the BU technical director for Laing O’Rourke and has been on the CIC Board as a member-appointed director for the past five years.
He said: “This is a great opportunity and I am looking forward to the role. MMC is a key initiative in construction and am sure this role will add value to CIC and its members. I look forward to continuing my work with CIC in bringing collaboration in the industry.”
CIC Champions are subject matter experts in their field who are engaged with CIC to provide current knowledgeable information and guidance on matters of crucial industry relevance. CIC Champions create their own remit pulling together advisory groups to help widen the scope of industry expertise further, wherever necessary.
Graham Watts OBE, CIC chief executive said: “Nick has been our go-to expert on MMC throughout his term as a non-executive director on the CIC Board and I am delighted that we are able to retain access to his knowledge in this new role. It is tremendous news that he can still advise us on this cutting-edge area of construction as a Champion for CIC and I expect that there will be a strong synergy with our Digital Forum, chaired by Dale Sinclair.”
