BPA welcomes Peter Caplehorn to central London awards night

Deputy chief executive of Construction Products Association will appear onstage with BBC presenter Louise Minchin

Policy director and deputy chief executive of the Construction Products Association (CPA), Peter Caplehorn, will address the 2016 CIBSE Building Performance Awards at London’s Grosvenor House Hotel on 24 February.

The awards night, hosted by BBC presenter Louise Minchin, will be attended by 700 industry guests with a passion for engineering excellence and eliminating energy waste in building stock.

This year’s shortlisted entries are responsible for projects, products and initiatives that exceed user expectations of comfort and performance.

In his role at the CPA, Caplehorn works to ensure that the UK and EU policy and regulatory framework – particularly for technical and sustainability issues – supports a growing and profitable construction products industry.

A chartered architect, with more than 30 years’ experience in construction, he is deputy chair of the Building Regulations Advisory Committee, and currently chairs the British Standards Institution’s strategic committee for construction.

Before joining the CPA, Caplehorn was technical director at Scott Brownrigg. He also chaired major industry events and was central to the delivery of several British Standards and Publicly Available Specifications, including PAS 91 and BS 8560.

The author of Whole Life Costing: A New Approach – and of articles in RIBA Journal, Building Design and Building – he has given evidence to all-party parliamentary enquiries, and appeared on radio and TV, as well as at Grand Designs Live.
