The Chartered Association of Building Engineers (CABE) has received approval to become a licensed member of the Engineering Council. This paves the way for CABE members to be formally eligible for Chartered Engineering status.

Dr Gavin Dunn, CEO of CABE says: “We are delighted with this licence award from the Engineering Council, as it further recognises building engineering as a defined engineering discipline in its own right and their professional competence both in the UK and internationally.”

This will enable the association to maintain the existing title Chartered Building Engineer and enable members to pursue the additional CEng registration if they wish. They will also have a clear and defined route to gain further international recognition.

The licence award follows four years of development and consultation at CABE, with 91% of its members voting in favour of the association changing its by-laws to become a full member of the Engineering Council and offer the Chartered Engineer (CEng) registration.
