We regret to inform you of the passing of Donald Leeper

REHVA is saddened to announce that Donald Leeper, Vice-president 2008-2011, died in April, a victim of COVID-19. His career spanned half a century, as did his service to CIBSE, BSRIA, the Construction Industry Council and REHVA.

Donald served on the board of REHVA from 2008 to 2011. He was particularly involved in the elaboration of REHVA’s 5-year strategic plan presented at CLIMA 2011 in Antalya. We keep in mind a strong member of the board, who really contributed to REHVA ˋs goals, aims and objectives with a great professionalism and a very strong ethical approach.

We shall remember Donald s a highly skilled professional, promoting our domain with a strong conviction, one of the personalities we only had a chance to meet via REHVA and whom we all benefitted from.

We keep Donald's family and friends in our thoughts as they go through this difficult time.

It is intended to provide a holistic formulation of hygiene-related constructional, technical and organisational requirements supplementing current regulations, ISO–, EN-standards and VDI standards.
