The Metal Cladding and Roofing Manufacturers Association (MCRMA) elects Clare Fenton as its new chairperson following its AGM (23 June). Clare is the first woman to hold the office since the MCRMA’s formation 31 years ago.
On her new role, Clare says: “I am honoured by this appointment within the MCRMA and proud to be a part of this highly respected organisation.
“Our membership of the MCRMA has allowed us to be a part of a community of like-minded companies and individuals with the desire and drive to see quality in construction and I have found the support and knowledge they create and share as a group invaluable.”
Clare has more than 20 years’ experience in the construction industry. Alongside her husband, she developed Mark Fenton Design Services Ltd, a specialist drawing office for the roofing and cladding sector.
During that time, Clare and Mark have overseen the delivery of close to 2,000 projects, mentoring over 30 trainees. Clare not only continues to run the business with Mark. but also designs and details the cladding, roofing and facades that the company specialises in.
Clare is co-founder and co-inventor of Veritherm, a rapid thermal performance testing solution developed alongside her husband and son supported by a group of Cambridge mathematicians and scientists.
More recently she has been heavily engaging with the Construction Innovation Hub and Manufacturing Technology Centre to help deliver their Platform Design Programme. The programme looks at modern methods of construction (MMC) and aims to deliver a new platform solution for future buildings.
The MCRMA aims to service the market for metal-based roofing and cladding products from the country’s leading roll-formers. Since its inception in 1990, the Association has incorporated manufacturers and suppliers of components and in recent times the membership has grown to include independent inspectors, industry support specialists and systems installers.
This provides a seamless supply chain from design, manufacture, installation and staged inspection through to completion.
The MCRMA produces a range of publications to educate specifiers and contractors alike on metal building envelope design.
