David Mechem, RISA
David Mechem
Head of Operations

Dave started out on the tools at a family run fabrication and installation business, working his way through all facets from PVC fabricator through to service engineer on both domestic and commercial contracts.

When FENSA was established in 2002 Dave joined the BBA as one of the original FENSA inspectors where he covered the Home Counties for a short while before moving to the West Country.

Dave then moved on to managing the inspectors at the BBA before moving to RISA with his inspection team in 2016. RISA offer independent and impartial inspection and auditing services to the glazing and construction industries in line with relevant legislation and standards. It is a UKAS-accredited Type A Inspection Body and the sole provider of inspection services for FENSA.

The RISA team provides coverage throughout England and Wales and collectively can call upon hundreds of years of industry experience. Dave has a real passion for the industry and is looking forward to meeting with installers, fabricators and anyone else that shares his enthusiasm for improving and promoting our sector.
