University College London appoints Peter Hansford as policy professor

Peter Hansford has been appointed as University College London’s professor of construction and infrastructure policy.

Mr Hansford was the government’s chief construction adviser between 2012 and 2015, before the role was scrapped.

During his term as the government adviser, Mr Hansford led the development of the Construction 2025 strategy for the industry. The former Nichols Group director takes up the role at UCL’s Bartlett School of Construction and Project Management this month.

He said: “I’m excited to be joining the Bartlett at UCL, which has built a reputation as the most innovative faculty in the UK for the built environment. Along with other areas, I’m keen to continue working on thought leadership for industry business models in construction.”

Alan Penn, dean of the Bartlett Faculty of the Built Environment, said: “I’m very pleased that Peter Hansford is joining UCL. His experience as the chief construction adviser to the UK government and across the wider industry will add tremendous value to the Bartlett School of Construction and Project Management.”
