Richard has led the MEP design for a number of large research laboratories including Containment Level 2 & 3 facilities, clean rooms as well as co-located clinical facilities to HTM standards including Europe’s largest endoscopy facility.
On several projects, Richard has worked closely with Wind Tunnel testing facilities to develop low energy fume extract systems which consider the specific chemical handling protocols of the facility to deliver safe, low cost solutions appropriate to the particular building.
He works closely with lab users and lab planners to deliver elegant engineering designs which meet the needs of the users whilst building in the flexibility which is so often critical to institutions working in changing scientific environments.
Richard joined Buro Happold in 2005 after graduating from Loughborough University with a 1st Class Masters Degree in Mechanical Engineering.
