Clare Fenton

Clare Fenton

Clare is the chair of the Metal Cladding and Roofing Manufacturers Association. She has been involved in the construction industry for more than 20 years, after starting out by creating CAD designs to support her husband’s business.

About Clare Fenton

Fenton Partners has since delivered designs for more than 2,000 buildings. More recently, Clare, her husband and son set out on a research and development programme to investigate improvements to build and performance. The result of this work was Veritherm,  an overnight 12-hour test that can give actual physical thermal performance data on built assets, which should help towards ambitious net-zero goals.

She has been involved with the Construction Innovation Hub’s Platform Programme since its start, sits on the Platform’s strategy board and is a key member of the envelope delivery team and the digital proof of concept team.

She was awarded the European Women in Construction and Engineering Lifetime in Construction Award in recognition of her efforts to improve standards, her innovations, collaborations along with years of mentoring, training and leadership.

A keen rower and cyclist, Clare is also a qualified sports therapist and a parish councillor.
