John Forster is stepping down.

CSIC seeks new chair to guide it into new phase for the construction industry. 

After seven years on the governance board – and three years as chair – John Forster will step down from his position at Construction Scotland Innovation Centre (CSIC), as the organisation seeks a new chairperson to help shape its future strategy and drive its evolution into a second phase.

Working closely with CSIC’s leadership team, the chair will help to drive positive change through cross-sector collaboration with a focus on new technology and digitally-enabled processes, along with skills and talent to future-proof the industry. Phase two activities will aim to build a socially responsible construction sector that supports a highly skilled and diverse workforce to deliver smart, sustainable, and value-driven buildings and structures.
