Complicated design

When you have a complicated project to design and need somebody with a keen eye for detail I always send it Richard’s way as I know he will work through the Architect's design methodically and practically which is a massive benefit. He will also spend time liaising with the Architect, engineer & clients design team and gets on and sorts problems out rather just sitting behind emails which these days is a critical skill which he has in abundance .
I would recommend Richard for any complicated project without hesitation

Knowledge and Experience

I first met Richard Kennedy when working for a local timber frame import company called Scandia Hus, since that time some 30 years ago we have worked together on various projects and many times I have obtained very useful advice from him with regards timber frame design.

He is undoubtedly one of the most knowledgeable people in his field, combined with his diligence, concern for detail and rapid response,  I would happily recommend his services to anyone.

Richard has recently worked on a project where he supported the architect and the customer to get the right balance between the cost and quality of the timber frame. He has a way to get everyone focussed on the solution. I would use Richard again to design Swedish timber frames for the UK market.
