CPA welcomes Adam Turk as new chair

THE Construction Products Association (CPA) says it’s delighted to welcome Adam Turk, ceo of Siderise Group, as its new chair. With decades of experience across the construction industry, and having supported the CPA for more than 15 years, it says Adam is well placed to provide leadership and insight as the CPA moves into a new phase for the sector.

The past few years have seen many challenges for the construction industry, from the impacts of Covid-19 to the repercussions of the Russo-Ukraine war and far-reaching implications of the Grenfell Tower tragedy.

The CPA says it’s been instrumental in working with the industry and with government bodies to meet these challenges and find solutions, and its outgoing chair, Phil Johns has skilfully guided the association to navigate these challenges for the past two years. Our heartfelt thanks go with him as he takes a new direction.

Looking forward, the new building safety regime is now fully established in law, and the next two years will bring challenges and opportunities as the industry gets to grips with the requirements.
Adam’s work on the CPA marketing integrity group helped deliver one of the most important tools the construction product sector has to demonstrate its commitment to this— the code for construction product information (CCPI).

Speaking at the annual spring lunch on 25 April, Adam emphasised the need for the industry to get its own house in order. Citing the three pillars of culture, competence and reliable product information, he called for ‘a top-down commitment to best practice, producing trustworthy product infoarmation and driving competence within our own organisations and the wider construction supply chain.’

Speaking on his appointment, he added: ‘I’m very honoured to have been appointed as the next CPA chairman. The construction products industry is a great industry. One I am very proud to have been a part of for many years, and one that I am now excited to help lead for what promises to be an interesting period as the building safety regime begins to embed itself.

‘I believe that, with the right focus and application, the construction product industry can get the attention it deserves, and we can create a trusted, successful and financially strong sector of the British economy.’

Peter Caplehorn, ceo of the CPA commented: ‘Change is inevitable, and the CPA is committed to working with its members, with government and with the wider industry to help ensure it’s driven in the right direction.

‘This role has been ably conducted by Phil during a very challenging time. We now welcome Adam as Phil’s successor, and look forward to seeing how his drive, expertise and integrity will support us in achieving these next steps towards a safer and more sustainable built environment.’
