NARM, the National Association of Rooflight Manufacturers, has elected Jim Lowther of Xtralite as Chairman at its recent council election. Jim replaces Tom Ogilvie, who now occupies the Vice Chairman role.
Jim (pictured above) commented: “I’m delighted to take on this new challenge at NARM. As an active member of the Council for many years and former Vice-Chairman, I’m closely involved with the Association’s ongoing work and I look forward to playing an increased role in NARM’s mission to support excellence and innovation in the provision of natural daylight via rooflights.
“NARM plays an important role in establishing definitions and standards pertaining to rooflighting, working with member companies, partner organisations and legislative bodies.
“For example, NARM technical representatives have liaised with DCLG and the Industry Advisory Groups that worked on development of Part L Building Regulations.”
Tom (pictured below) said: “Daylighting has never been more at the forefront of architecture than it is today; as an abundant, renewable natural resource it is increasingly recognised to have a major impact on our wellbeing and also on the environmental impact of the buildings we occupy.
“As a result, our industry is changing fast and NARM has an important role to help identify and encourage the spread of best practice. Brett Martin Daylight Systems is a founder member of NARM and I’m pleased to be able to continue to support its work as Vice Chairman.”
NARM officers are nominated and voted for by the membership, in regular council elections, the Chairmanship being a two year position.
