Sir Frank Lampl, one of the construction industry’s biggest and most respected names, has died aged 84. It is understood he had been unwell for some time.

Sir Frank, who spent 30 years rising through the ranks at Bovis to become chief executive, chairman and then life president of the group, passed away this morning.

Dan Labbad, Lend Lease’s current chief executive for Europe, Middle East and Africa has paid his respects to the late Sir Frank: “It is with much sadness that we have been informed that Sir Frank Lampl has passed away.
