Brief Career History:
Originally trained as an Architect, Gavin initially practised in North America with a large engineering consultancy before returning to the UK to specialise in the energy and environmental performance of buildings. Gavin continued to advance this agenda through positions at the Welsh School of Architecture, Association of Building Engineers and Elmhurst Energy, before taking his current role as Director of the Building Performance Group at the Building Research Establishment.

In his current position Gavin is responsible for the development and delivery of a portfolio of BRE's globally leading products and services including: BREEAM, CEEQUAL, SmartWaste, YellowJacket, national housing, energy and building futures activities.

In 2015 Gavin was appointed to (BRAC) Building Regulations Advisory Committee. 

Aims of CABE:
Throughout my career I have been committed to raising building standards and helping create effective regulation.  Buildings that are not only better buildings but that also have a reduced impact on the environment, efficiently use limited global resources, and are safer, healthier, and more productive places to be.  I believe the CABE is uniquely placed to play a significant role in making this vision a reality as it remains interdisciplinary but also fundamentally technical in its focus. 

As a non-executive director I aim to help raise the profile of the Association, increase its influence with industry and government, and promote the unique role its members have in creating better buildings, safer and healthier communities, improved environment and economy.
