Digital construction expert and former NBS CEO Richard Waterhouse has joined the British Board of Agrement (BBA) board as a Non-Executive Director in a move that will advance the organisation’s commitment to efficiency and customer service.
His appointment is said to have come at a pivotal time for the BBA as it shifts to a fully systems-led organisation.
Digitisation is key to this transformation and Richard’s background as an early adopter of CAD/construction information and his experience leading NBS’s transition to a digitised organisation will prove invaluable to BBA CEO Hardy Giesler and his senior management team.
He said: “Richard brings with him a wealth of knowledge and experience as an industry leader who truly understands the power of construction data in the design, supply and construction of the built environment.
“He is a fierce believer in using technology to solve client problems and forge partnerships across the industry.
“We believe Richard’s input will be fundamental in helping the BBA become a truly systems-led organisation, putting clients at the heart of everything we do. We wish him well in his appointment.”
Richard said of the appointment: “I am delighted to be able to join BBA as it continues its transformation into a customer focussed organisation playing a pivotal role in construction product safety.
“Its digitalisation journey will reinforce its focus on safety and transparency. I look forward to supporting Hardy and his team on this journey.”
