The Chartered Institution of Building Services Engineers (CIBSE) has appointed Reid Donovan as chairman in the UAE.

Donovan, who is the regional director at MEP consultancy ChapmanBDSP, said it was an ‘honour’ to be elected chairman by his peers and that he hoped to make a positive impact for members during his tenure, according to MEP Middle East.

He also said that he plans to take membership of the institute past the 400-mark by the end of the year.

ChapmanBDSP has worked on a number of landmark projects in the UAE and has offices in Dubai and Abu Dhabi.

Donovan said: “My key goals are to keep the committee highly organised through regular continued professional development seminars and then going a little leftfield with the subject matter to ensure our members are engaged and that we capture a slightly wider audience with future events.

 

“We are planning a number of talks and a behind-the-scenes tour of an iconic building followed by an insight to the way the building is managed and maintained.”

He added: “It’s such an exciting time for CIBSE in the UAE. I hope members see we are driving the organisation forward and that non-members want to be a part of it.”
