Richard began his roofing career straight from school. He worked in contracting for D. W Tilley Limited, before joining the British Army and serving during the conflict in Iraq and Afghanistan for 5 years before moving into roofing manufacturing, where he has been for the past 14 years.

Richard has used this time to gain significant experience in roofing system manufacturing as well as working closely and collaboratively with roofing contractors across the UK. He has supplemented this knowledge by undertaking a master’s degree in construction project management at Robert Gordon University, Aberdeen, achieving a distinction for his studies.

Richard currently manages the technical team at Sika, who produce specifications, technical information and give advice on best roofing practice. Sika manufacture Hot Melt Structural Waterproofing, reinforced bituminous membranes, Single Ply membranes and Liquid Applied membranes to the UK roofing industry.  Richard is an active member of the Roofing technical community and often contributes toward technical discussion and debate in a variety of forums.

During his career, Richard has worked on many significant and complex projects including waterproofing and green roofing on a UNESCO World Heritage site.
