Terry Treanor was chairman of IPHA from its inauguration in 1994, until he sadly died, unexpectedly, in 2003. He was instrumental in the development of the association, as it was on his suggestion that slipform manufacturers were brought into the fold. This resulted in the evolution of IECA (International Extruded Concrete Association) into the International Prestressed Hollowcore Association.
Over the following years, he was at the centre of the growth of IPHA into the organisation that exists today. It was in his honour and memory that the award was devised, with the first one awarded at the annual conference in Prague, 2005.
