New Appointment:
Ex-NBS CEO Richard Waterhouse joins BBA board.

Digital construction expert and former NBS CEO Richard Waterhouse has joined the BBA board as a non-executive director in a move that will advance the organisation’s commitment to efficiency and customer service.

His appointment comes at a pivotal time for the British Board of Agrement 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.

“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”

Hardy Giesler, CE, British Board of Agrément

“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.”
