Andy Mathews

Kiwa Ltd

As Head of Training for the Kiwa UK Group, I oversee the training business area, develop relationships with external organisations and facilitate bespoke courses. I have worked in the construction sector for 36 years (specialising in building services engineering). I recently developed and launched an assessment and surveillance scheme to evaluate businesses installing energy efficiency systems. The scheme provides assurance that grant funded work is compliant with manufacturer’s instructions, building regulations and best practice. The scheme is a conformity and evaluation service monitoring quality of retrofit building products for the effective installation of energy efficiency measures to domestic dwellings. My remit includes conducting factory production control audits, specifically for the volumetric modular housing systems. The audits provide a technical assessment and verification of the quality system, production and process for acceptance of Kiwa Building Products for Agrément certification. Kiwa supports my external position as chair to the CIBSE Domestic Building Services Panel. The panel aims to inform and promote best practice for the construction and renovation of better homes, following published best practice guidance for domestic building services engineers. See
