Richard joined Bryden Wood in 2012 following his Masters of Architecture course at the University of Edinburgh. With a keen interest in detailing and modular design, Richard began work on the development of a lightweight prototype for a disaster relief housing project. He was also part of the team that won a competition for extensions to three primary schools in Redbridge that BWL went on to complete.
For the past two and a half years, Richard has been responsible for the internal architecture and coordination of the M&E design within the £50million, 22000sq. metre Gatwick Pier 1 & Baggage factory project located at Gatwick Airport’s South Terminal. During this time Richard has developed his interests in the detailing and coordination of a complex and multifaceted project and has worked closely with the Contractor Vinci, Sub-contractors and project client. Together with his colleague, Richard has been leading Bryden Wood’s project team to deliver the final parts of the design as the project reaches completion on site.
More recently, Richard has been leading a team of Bryden Wood’s specialist Solidwork’s modellers that are producing the GRC cladding and structural framing system for the Crossrail tunnel projects at Liverpool Street and Tottenham Court Road stations. BWL are working directly for Explore and GRCUK on this non-traditional project and are delivering the complex model geometry within the tunnels that will be sent directly to the mould and steel fabricators.
