The Association for Consultancy and Engineering (ACE) has welcomed the appointment of Peter Hansford as Chief Construction Adviser. Mr Hansford, a past president of the Institution of Civil Engineers, succeeds Paul Morrell OBE who stands down in November 2012.
Nelson Ogunshakin OBE, ACE Chief Executive, said: “Peter Hansford is an experienced and highly respected ambassador for the infrastructure and construction industry. He has a strong track record with contractors, consultants, and public and private client bodies both in the UK and internationally. I am sure that he will not only continue to ensure that construction is at the heart of government policy, but will also be a strong advocate for promoting the UK construction sector in the international arena.
“I also congratulate Paul Morrell for his achievements while in office. His energy and commitment has helped to bring government and the construction industry closer together, as well as giving a lead to efficiency and carbon reduction in the built and natural environment."
