Bob Tatt, ICE training manager from 1977-1993, has died.
He joined the Institution from the Construction Industry Training Board, and was brought in to overseee 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 engineer and encouraged organisations to prepare and submit formal training schemes for approval by the Institution.
A spokesman at ICE professional development said: 'Bob's loyalty to the Institution and his enthusiastic approach to its activities and all aspects of training was a source of strength to many SCEs and trainees. His unsparing example of hard work and his friendly appreciation of effort was an encouragement to his RTOs and staff alike.'
Tatt, whose hobbies included membership of a barbershop quartet, remained active within the Institution after retirement through membership of the Civil Engineers Club and lecturing work for Thomas Telford Publishing.
