Capita Symonds director appointed to RICS Group Board

22 September 2010

Capita Symonds’ Commercial Director Chris Green has been appointed to the Board of the RICS UK Quantity Surveying and Construction Group.

The new Board will lead on QS and construction standards and issues for RICS (the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors) and will be responsible for engaging with QS practices, members, and governments in the UK and international markets. Members of the Board are drawn from a variety of roles and practices across the sector, in order to form a strong lead for RICS in the construction field.

The Board begins its tenure at a time when the combination of the current economic climate and demand for carbon and waste reduction programmes place heavy emphasis on standards, best practice and cost/waste efficiency in construction projects.

Commenting on his appointment, Chris said: “I welcome the opportunity to help shape the strategic direction of the QS profession that this appointment brings. This will give Capita Symonds an amplified voice in the industry and I look forward to working with RICS members and the Government to lead the industry onto to a sustainable recovery path.”

Board Chairman, David Bucknall FRICS said: “The new QS board will play a vital strategic role in ensuring that construction issues are at the centre of RICS policy and standards agendas over the coming years.”
