Bob Tatt, ICE training manager from 1977-1993, has died.
He joined ICE from the Construction Industry Training Board to implement the Chilver Implementation Board's recommendation that graduates continue training at postgraduate level. He built up a team of regional liaison officers, developed the role of supervising civil engineers and encouraged organisations to prepare training schemes.
A spokesperson at ICE Professional Development said: 'Bob's loyalty to the Institution and his enthusiastic approach to all aspects of training was a source of strength to SCEs and trainees. His hard work and appreciation of effort was an encouragement to RTOs and staff alike.'
Tatt remained active within the ICE after retirement through membership of the Civil Engineers Club and lecturing for Thomas Telford Publishing.
