Ken Barber: In Memoriam

Long-standing NASC servant who contributed to the Technical Committee for more than 30 years

It is with great sadness that we announce the death of Mr Ken Barber. Ken died peacefully on Tuesday 22 September, after a short illness.

Ken has been a great servant and stalwart to the Technical Committee for more than 30 years and has been involved in producing much significant and innovative guidance for the NASC over that time.

This has included involvement with the two early editions of TG20 and TG9, which has become the industry ‘standard’ for the design of temporary roofs.

His input on European Standards in encapsulation was outstanding and he has continually worked closely with other members of the group, ensuring that guidance met the requirements of the relevant codes and standards.

Ken always showed exemplary dedication to the work of the Technical Committee and constantly carried out his tasks with the utmost interests of the NASC at heart.

Whilst possibly not known to some outside of his region, Ken’s contribution to the NASC will remain as a splendid legacy for many years to come. He will be sadly missed by all who knew him.
