CIAT Report

Is it time to swap sentimentality for sustainability in the refurb sector?

Every generation tries to improve on what went before, often by denigrating the past as old fashioned and out-dated. In the construction sector, that axiom has led to some tragic destruction of our architectural heritage.

Crafted features, such as joinery, fireplaces, architraves and tiling, have been covered over or ripped out, to be replaced with alternatives that have not stood the test of time well in terms of either quality or aesthetics.

Year-End Report 2021

As we finish this year and head into 2022, I wanted to write and update you on this year's progress for the AEEBC. We are in our 30th year, and the vision that has compelled us as the AEEBC for all these years remains steadfast and very much intact. The last couple of years has been largely overshadowed by Covid, which has sadly affected our ability to meet in person.

However, the association has continued to go about its business quietly in the background. As always, the warmth and positivity of the members have been a bright light in this shared experience.

Newly elected President

I write to you as newly elected President of the AEEBC. I consider this both a great honour and a challenge as we move forward in these extraordinary times. With Covid, much has been written, experienced, and undergone by our families, work colleagues, and friends.

This, with the final shadow cast from Brexit, will reshape our professional and day-to-day lives. When you consider and then include climate change, sustainability, their impact on the construction industry, we begin to see a roadmap for our organization.

For the AEEBC, the advent of Brexit, although unwanted, still mandates the inclusion of the UK's professional organizations, learning outcomes, and contributions. Politics may change, but geography remains permanent. For the UK, the platform of the AEEBC will always offer a gateway into the European building professions and industry. We in the AEEBC must constantly adapt and learn as a shared body.

This is one of AEEBC's key strengths. Read the full letter.

Trevor Mole

It is with great shock and sorrow that we receive the news of the passing of Trevor Mole, Past President, colleague and friend in the AEEBC.

As President Trevor was a European visionary who understood the importance and value of cooperation and interaction. He held an innate understanding of the differences that united the AEEBC. Trevor was a force of life and always led by example with no problem insurmountable or left unsolved. Trevor’s attitude and work ethic were immense and lore in the AEEBC. His influence still prevails.

Trevor extended a generosity of spirit and friendship to all he encountered. Trevor leaves many friends. He will be sorely missed. We in the AEEBC can only extend our deepest sympathies to his family, friends and colleagues at PT.
May he rest in peace.
