In his new role, Heaman will focus on ensuring that low-carbon design choices achieve the prominence they deserve in the sector.
John Wright, director at Stride Treglown will join Heaman as vice-chair of the regional chapter.
Heaman said: “While the pandemic undoubtedly raises new questions for our industry, the guidance and research provided by the BCO is allowing us to reset, transform and improve the work we deliver.
