A Civil Engineer by profession, Richard joined Harry Fairclough Construction in 1987 following 10 years with Tarmac Construction. He was appointed Managing Director of the Company 2 years later and Group Managing Director in 2003.
Operationally, the Company is structured around two divisions, namely build and civil engineering. Each Division is led by a management team with specialist knowledge and experience of those activities demanded by the market place.
The Company was early to recognise the requirement by customers for a more collaborative form of working; an approach consistent with its founding values and history. The result is that around 70% of turnover is secured via frameworks and over 90% secured on a repeat basis.
