Richard graduated from Imperial College in 2012 with a first class degree in Civil Engineering. During university Richard was sponsored by Laing O’Rourke gaining experience on two different projects.
On graduation Richard proceeded to join Laing O’Rourke as a Site Engineer supervising the construction of Bond Street Station Upgrade in London. During this project he gained experience in underpinning, mini piling, precast concrete installation, temporary works installation and inspection and waterproofing to concrete structures.
In 2014 Richard joined the tunnelling team at the Bond Street Station Upgrade project as a Tunnelling Engineer and Section Engineer. He supervised the construction of spray concrete lined tunnels, hand excavated tunnels and modifications to the existing passageway tunnels within Bond Street Station. Then in 2015, still employed by Laing O’Rourke, he worked at the Davyhulme Wastewater Treatment project in Manchester as a Section Engineer. During this project, Richard planned and managed a large variety of construction activities including lifting operations, temporary works, demolition and large scale excavations.
