He also oversaw major reviews to enhance the safety standards in the built environment, and guided BCA in the development of the Construction Productivity Roadmap to steer the built environment sector towards higher productivity through technology adoption, more integrated building processes and a higher-quality workforce.

Existing board member Norman Ip, chairman of WBL Corporation, will succeed Mr Lee as the deputy chairman.

In addition to Mr Lee and Mr Ip, six existing board members will be re-appointed and six new board members will join the board. All appointments are for a three-year term starting April.

With these appointment changes, the BCA board will have 14 members.
