BSRIA has announced the appointment of Colin Goodwin CEng as its new technical director at BSRIA.
Colin has had an extensive and distinguished career in the building services design and sustainable engineering sector with particular interest in innovative building maintenance techniques.
He comes to BSRIA from MITIE where he held the role of technical director – and was formerly part of the Dalkia leadership team.
He holds a BEng (Hons) in Energy Engineering and is a Chartered Engineer. He is a Fellow of CIBSE, Liveryman in the Worshipful Company of Engineers and a registered EurIng.
In his role as technical director, Colin will direct the technical direction and focus of BSRIA, both now and in the future, and will provide top level technical, engineering and professional decision making. The role also encompasses managing BSRIA technical input to regulatory, legislative and parliamentary activity, including energy policies and building regulations.
Julia Evans, chief executive, BSRIA, said: “Colin brings with him an abundance of experience and we see his appointment as an essential step in our continued development for the strategic direction BSRIA is taking, moving into 2019 and beyond.
“With Colin’s specific, top level engineering background, he can bring to the table key industry intelligence and foresight. This will boost BSRIA’s reputation as the go-to industry leader in delivering global sustainable building construction and research. It will also highlight BSRIA’s commitment to its members and delivering improvement in the built environment.
“All my BSRIA colleagues and board members know Colin is an excellent choice and welcome him to the role.”
Colin said: “I am truly delighted and looking forward to the opportunities in this role which will enhance BSRIA’s reputation and support its client base – both nationally and globally. Especially at this time of acute change and challenge. As well as directing BSRIA’s technical capability and reputation at all opportunities externally. I am passionate about the progression and development of building services.
“BSRIA is a great organisation and has an amazing depth of knowledge and expertise. As the leading, international, built environment member organisation, it has a crucial role to play in assisting and enabling the industry to deliver the buildings and the building performance that investors, occupiers, residents and society needs.
“BSRIA has always been at the cutting edge of industry trends and new technologies providing highly professional independent information and guidance.
“It is certainly an inspiring time, with opportunities for the construction industry to lead the agendas around Soft Landings, wellbeing, smart homes and the cities, towns and villages in which buildings, and the specific design of the built environment, play such a critical part.
“I am looking forward to working with BSRIA and the industry to make the most of these prospects and to guarantee that BSRIA strengthens its position at the forefront of such activity.”
