CICV Forum Welcomes New Member

The Construction Industry Coronavirus (CICV) Forum has welcomed a new member into its ranks and has also set up a specialist sub-group to help gather and share expertise from some of Scotland’s leading consultants.

Trade association DHF is the latest organisation to become a full member. The creation of a new Consultants sub-group has also seen 12 professional bodies swell the collective’s ever-growing roster of experts.

The arrival of DHF also means that the Forum now has 25 full member bodies from throughout Scotland and beyond, including Government Agencies, private companies and professional services, along with eight sub-groups receiving input from more than 40 separate organisations.

Forum Chair and SELECT Managing Director Alan Wilson, said: “We are delighted to welcome both DHF as our latest full member and the 12 bodies who make up the new Consultants sub-group.

“Now that restart is under way in earnest, cooperation and collaboration is more vital than ever, so we appreciate the knowledge and expertise that these new Forum contributors bring.

“Each new member brings new strengths and we greatly appreciate the knowledge and insight we know they will deliver as part of our ongoing efforts.”

As a not-for-profit trade association, DHF represents companies that are associated with locks and building hardware, doorsets, industrial doors and shutters, domestic garage doors and automated gates.

Patricia Sowsbery-Stevens, Head of Commercial Operations at DHF, said: “The Forum gives the industry an invaluable opportunity to discuss the issues we all face and decide how restart can be managed safely for both contractors and consumers.

“We are proud to contribute our voice to and help make our contribution to a remarkable joint initiative that has already made such a positive mark on the construction sector.”

The new Consultants sub-group is made up of representatives from leading industry bodies Atelier Ten, Currie & Brown, David Narro Associates, Gardiner & Theobald, Hardies, JM Architects, Keppie Design, Page\Park, Reiach & Hall, Turner & Townsend, Will Rudd Davidson, and Woolgar Hunter.

The latest developments follow the arrival of Association for Project Safety (APS) and Single Ply Roofing Association (SPRA), which both joined the Forum as full members in June.
