Director of Windows & Cladding to edit new industry journal

Dr Stephen Ledbetter, Director of the Centre for Window & Cladding Technology, is to become the editor of a new international civil engineering journal.

The quarterly Construction Materials, published by the Institution of Civil Engineers, will focus on innovative and existing materials in new uses and environments.

Dr Ledbetter said: “It is a real honour to be the editor of what will become the leading publication for the industry.

“Its articles will be at the very cutting edge of research and development of construction materials.

“As its editor I will be able to report on the latest and most exciting developments in the industry.”

The industry-funded Centre for Window & Cladding Technology is affiliated to the Department of Architecture & Civil Engineering. It is a leading information provider and trainer in building envelopes and glazing, advising the Government and the British Standards Agency.

It is the only research centre in the world for façade engineering and acts as a consultant to the construction industry. The Centre produces many of its own publications and organises courses and seminars throughout the year.

A civil/structural engineer by profession, Dr Ledbetter joined the University of Bath in 1981. He has been Centre Director since 1990 and participates in several international research groups. He is also Director of Studies for the MSc in Façade Engineering.
