My full resume and biographical journey since 1964 are on the Charles Rich Consultancy Website
In a nutshell I spent 25 years in contracting’ delivering design on many diverse major projects both at home and overseas. I then spent 18 years at Foster + Partners where I was a partner responsible for coordinating new business enquires, negotiating fees and appointments, and heading-up the Project Support Group, which provided management support to the projects, design reviews and buildability input, and liaison with Clients and Contractors. I left in 2006 to start my own consultancy, almost immediately architects started approaching me for help and advice, which happened regularly from then on, so that the client list is now over 40 strong.
I have a deep and intimate knowledge of what makes a successful architectural practice.
I have been at Middlesex University since 2010 and have been senior lecturer on MSc in BIM Management since its inception in 2012 and BSc in Architectural Technology.
