CHARLES RICH - BA (Hons) DMS
I have spent over 50 years in the construction industry -my first twenty five years in contracting with Costain and Wimpey, then 18 years in a design environment with Fosters and Partners, where I was a partner and, since 2006, heading-up this consultancy.
My 18 years experience in Practice management at Foster + Partners gives me a close understanding of architects, whom I recognise love design, and balancing that with the running of a successful international practice.
Importantly my contracting background and delivering designs in other industries means that I equally understand how engineers and contractors approach projects. My input into buildability and construction techniques can be crucial at the early stages of design. My experience and vision mean that I can quickly identify where my input can be most valuable.
I have been involved with many projects, large and small, at home and overseas. These include HSBC HQ in Hong Kong where my role for the management contractor was delivering the Foster led design for procurement and construction, projects for universities, defence, oil and gas industries, nuclear power stations, city office buildings, education and cultural buildings and the refurbishment and redevelopment of existing buildings.
I am a Senior Lecturer in MSc BIM Management and BSc in Architectural Technology at Middlesex University
