TRADA has appointed four new members to its board – Charles Hopping of Hoppings Softwood Products plc; Charlie Law of BAM Construct UK Ltd; Tony Miles of International Timber; and Simon Smith of Ramboll UK Ltd.

TRADA chief executive Andrew Abbott said as individuals, TRADA board members offered invaluable experience in their own discipline. However, it had been the organisation’s conscious policy to seek a broad representation of the construction sector, to reflect the pattern of membership across the entire supply chain.

“This combined breadth and depth of knowledge and expertise will ensure that TRADA retains a firm grasp of industry’s needs now and in the future,” he said.
