Originally trained as an architect, Gavin initially practised in North America with a large construction engineering firm before returning to the UK to specialise in the energy and environmental performance of buildings in 1998.
Gavin advanced this specialism through positions at the Welsh School of Architecture, and Elmhurst Energy, where he helped develop some of Europe’s leading building energy certification and labelling systems.
In 2013 Gavin was appointed Director of Building Performance at the Building Research Establishment (BRE) where he was responsible for a portfolio of BRE's globally leading services including BREEAM and CEEQUAL the world’s foremost environmental assessment methods for the built environment.
In 2018, Gavin was appointed as Chief Executive of CABE where he works to help enable a more professional construction sector that works to create better, safer, and more sustainable buildings that enhance people’s lives.
Gavin has been a member of the Building Regulations Advisory Committee (BRAC) of the UK Government since 2015 where he currently serves as Chairman of the Future Homes Standard Working Group.
We are delighted to have Gavin join us as Chairman of the iHelios Board of Directors.
