The Glass and Glazing Federation (GGF) has confirmed Peter Capelhorn will be a keynote speaker for this year’s Members’ Day, taking place on 26 September in Kensington, London.
Capelhorn is the Chief Executive of the Construction Products Association (CPA) and has led the technical and safety work to ensure the UK and EU policy and regulatory framework supports the UK construction products industry.
A Chartered Architect with over 35 years of experience, Peter is particularly respected for his leadership across the wider construction industry, in a number of key national roles including:
– Chair of CB (the British Standards Institution’s Strategic Committee for Construction)
– Chair of RIBA’s Regulations and Standards Group
– Chair of the BIM (Building Information Modelling) Task Group’s BIM4Regs working group.
Until recently he was deputy chair of the Building Regulations Advisory Committee (BRAC) and immediate past Chair of the CIC Health and Safety committee for nine years and was a RIBA (Royal Institute of British Architects) Council member for eight.
In 2015, Peter received an honorary membership from Chartered Institute of Architectural Technologists and in 2017, he was awarded honorary membership of the Institute of Fire Engineers.
He has given evidence at several All Party Parliamentary Inquiries regarding construction and has appeared in a number of television and radio interviews and live event programmes, including Grand Designs Live.
Furthermore, Peter has also authored publications, such as ‘Whole Life Costing: A New Approach’, published in 2012, and has frequently published articles for the RIBA Journal, Building Design, Building Magazine and many others.
His second book, ‘Health and Safety and the Plan of Work’ was published in 2016.
Most recently, he has represented the CPA at the Industry Response Group initiated by Government to steer actions to make existing buildings safe, in the wake of the Grenfell disaster.
