Senior Engineer, Arup
Richard’s background is in building engineering, joining Arup’s multidisciplinary design studio Arup Associates in 2011. After four years of building design and construction experience in the UK, Middle East and South Asia, his focus on embodied carbon led him to specialise in environmental impacts of construction products and supply chains. This work includes completing GHG emission calculations for products, construction projects, cities and economic sectors; comparative sustainability studies for construction supply chain businesses; the design and implementation of carbon management processes; and the use of circular economy principles as a set of tools and an inspiration for reducing emissions impact of the sector. He manages Arup’s global partnership with the Ellen MacArthur Foundation, and has led research projects on circular economy with the Foundation as well as with academic institutions like University College London and ETH Zurich.
