The British Rating Fenestration Council has added two new technical resources: George Higgs, Lead Building Physicist and Managing Director of Building Energy Physics Consultancy Ltd, and Richard Bate, Technical Director of Build Check Ltd.
Both are long standing members of the BFRC Technical Committee and the organisation says their increased input, ahead of new product launches in the summer, will broaden its technical diversity and integrity, contributing towards wider acceptance of its ‘rainbow’ energy ratings.
Lis Clarke, BFRC Operations Director, pictured, said: “As the most widely used ratings system in the window and door sector it’s vital we continue to set the benchmark and improve standards throughout the industry. Bringing in such hugely knowledgeable resources such as George and Richard will improve our technical standing and expertise immeasurably, ensuring that BFRC calculations become even more technically robust.”
Build Check’s Richard Bate replied: “Being the very first BFRC registered simulator and having over 20 years’ experience with independent testing and product certification for the fenestration industry I am delighted to assist in helping them achieve the ambitious goals they have set for the year ahead.”
George Higgs of BEPC said:“I have had a long standing relationship with BFRC for many years and therefore delighted to be able to work with them as a technical consultant.”
