Richard Lakin AHP Architects & Surveyors Ltd

senior architectural


Richard completed an honours degree in Architectural Technology in 2002. Since then he’s gained a broad knowledge base working within a number of construction sectors including time at two of the UK’s largest engineering consultancies. He has fulfilled a wide variety of roles including Junior Surveyor, Architectural Technician, CAD Technician and Architectural Assistant. 

Since joining AHP in 2007, Richard has been given the opportunity to focus on the management of small to medium sized projects covering education, healthcare and residential sectors. He has further developed his detailed construction knowledge and built upon his already strong knowledge of CAD techniques and methods – many being implemented within the practice. Richard has been a long-time advocate of the use of BIM methods within the construction process, of which he’s cultivated a sound knowledge through training and use of Autodesk Revit.

Outside of work, Richard enjoys family life and became a proud father to his daughter Ella in 2012. Richard has a passion for music and in particular enjoys making his own dance music tracks, and DJ’ing whenever he is given the opportunity.
