Peter Andrews, founder chairman of the Civil Engineering Contractors Association (CECA), died last week aged 66.
Andrews was instrumental in the foundation of CECA following the dissolution of the Federation of Civil Engineering Contractors in November 1996.
Then chairman of the European Construction Industry Federation’s (FIEC) south eastern section, he worked to establish CECA to provide a strong representative voice for civil engineering contractors.
He became CECA’s founder chairman and worked tirelessly to ensure its recognition within the industry and government.
His commitment to the construction industry also led to him becoming a chairman of the Construction Confederation and a vice president of FIEC.
In 2006 he was again elected CECA national chairman, holding the post until stepping down
in March 2009 due to health problems.
