Lucideon is pleased to announce the appointment of John Renshaw, Group Technical Manager at Wienerberger Ltd, as Chairman of the Lucideon Clay Brick Research Committee. John will succeed Ian Walker who served as Chairman for the three preceding years.
Caroline Mullington, Technology Partner Manager at Lucideon, commented:
“We’re delighted that John has agreed to be our new Chairman. John brings with him a wealth of experience and knowledge of the clay brick sector, and we welcome the guidance and advice that he will undoubtedly bring to the Committee.”
John Renshaw, Group Technical Manager at Wienerberger Ltd, commented:
“I’m very pleased to be accepted by the Committee as Chairman and look forward to working with the team at Lucideon and the Committee, to tackle the challenges faced by industry.”
The primary purpose of the Committee is to collaborate and communicate with the Lucideon Heavy Clay Technology Partners in support of the sector. This includes adapting to the many external legislative and technological changes, from standards support and practical guidance, through to innovative projects specifically designed to strengthen the sector knowledge.
Lucideon represents the UK on a number of construction related standards and regulatory committees, including CEN (Committee for European Standardisation) and BSI (British Standards Institution). From this involvement, Lucideon is able to offer up-to-date advice and guidance on standards and the regulatory and legislative framework connected with the construction sector, such as the European Code of Practice for the design of masonry and the European Standards for masonry units, mortars and ancillary components.
