ROOK AND VERBER STRENGTHEN THE BESA TECHNICAL TEAM

7 January 2016  The Building Engineering Services Association has appointed Tim Rook to the new senior post of technical director, and Jack Verber to the position of technical assistant.

Tim Rook was previously head of build design at Eon Community Energy, where he led a team of engineers in the design and delivery of ecentralised energy systems, including: London’s Citigen, which features 9MW of combined heat and power supplying a 25MW heat and 10MW chill district system; the UK’s first commercial solar thermal plant; and some of the largest residential district heating systems.

Tim is a member of the Institute of Mechanical Engineers and the Chartered Institution of Building Services Engineers, and has worked in a wide variety of m&e contracting businesses as well as manufacturing, the energy industry, with particular emphasis on renewable and environmental technologies, most notably biomass, heat pump
and photovoltaic systems.

Jack Verber graduated with honours in mechanical engineering from the University of Bristol in 2013 and, before joining the BESA, spent 14 months with Schlumberger in Bergen, Norway, as a field engineer working on exploration oilrigs in the North Sea.

Chief executive Paul McLaughlin explained that the two appointments underlined the BESA’s commitment to leading the technical agenda across building engineering services, to the enhancement of its suite of industry specifications and guides to good practice, and to ensuring that its members remained in the vanguard of technological innovation and development.

“I am confident that Tim’s excellent academic qualifications and broad practical and managerial experience will prove an invaluable asset to the association, and that – with Jack’s expert and enthusiastic assistance – he will further establish our commitment to the creation of the low-carbon economy and a genuinely sustainable built environment,” said Mr McLaughlin.

Commenting on his appointment, Mr Rook confirmed that this was a uniquely exciting and stimulating time for the building engineering services, construction, energy supply and related industries.

“I am delighted, therefore, to have the opportunity to help set the agenda for change, to assist BESA members in addressing present and future challenges, and to enhancing the value of membership,” Mr Rook concluded.
