ICE praises Morrell’s advisor role reappointment

The ICE has praised the reappointment of the government’s chief construction advisor Paul Morrell, and said there “has never been a more important time” to have industry representation within Whitehall.

Morrell was given the role in December 2009 on a two-year contract, which has been extended for a further year.


His work has so far included overseeing reforms set out in the Government Construction (Procurement) Strategy.

He is also assisting in the establishment of the Green Construction Board.

ICE President Peter Hansford said: “the ICE welcomes the reappointment of Paul Morrell as chief construction adviser. There has never been a more important time to have a respected construction champion within Whitehall.
“Paul’s work on the low carbon agenda, BIM and the Green Construction Board has been notable, along with his progress in coordinating government and industry efforts.

“We are pleased Paul will now have the opportunity to drive forward these initiatives and plans to implementation stage.”
