Final Workshop confirmed for GQA Approved Centre Conference

GQA are delighted to announce that Dave Mechem of BBA will join the line-up in Milton Keynes at this years Approved Centre Conference on the 26th of November 2015 to share his knowledge regarding MTC’s and Building Inspections.

Dave Mechem, is the Inspection Manager for Fenestration and manages a team of inspectors for the BBA. Dave started in the window industry as the sole fabricator in his father’s small family business, before moving into fitting, then servicing, finally surveying working on domestic and small to medium housing contacts for local authorities. He started with the BBA at the start of FENSA in 2002 where he was one of the first FENSA inspectors – covering the North London area for approximately six months before moving to the south west of England, becoming the Inspection manager in 2008.

With MTCs being approved by DCLG in 2012 and mandated for Competent Person Scheme members in 2014, the role of assessor has become more prominent as we look to recognise and improve the skills and knowledge within the domestic sector. With inspections being common place within the industry for some time now, with homeowners seeking to gain their completion certificates, this topical workshop will discuss Building Regulation Compliance and MTCs, highlighting the role of an inspector in both disciplines, with Dave offering his thoughts on the process.
