Practice Profile  

Having been awarded student of the year in 1991, Richard graduated from the Glasgow College of Building and Printing in June 1992. He maintained the progression of his career working with large and small practices throughout Glasgow gaining experience in all sectors of the construction industry. Richard has gained extensive experience dealing with projects from inception to completion ranging from:

- Residential Housing Developments
- Flatted Developments
- Gorbals Regeneration - Glasgow
- Bespoke Houses

- Drive Thru Fast Food Restaurants (Modular & Traditional Construction)
- Instore Fast Food Restaurants, East Kilbride & Greenock
- Office Developments (Including Business Park Masterplanning)
- Retail Park, Kilbowie Retail Park
- Football Training Academy, Bothwell

- Garrison Masterplanning
- Mess Facilities
- Residential Blocks (Sleeping Quarters)

- Secondary High Schools (South Lanarkshire Council)

- Distillery Bottling Plant, Airdrie

During mid 2008, working for G5 Architecture and Design Ltd, Richard decided that managing aspects of a practice were not enough and proceeded to fulfill his career ambition of becoming a fully Chartered Architectural Technologist to which through pressure of work, he had delayed for about 15 years. This would assist and compliment the management roll of his employment.
Richard completed the Chartership Interview in June 2009 just weeks after finding himself redundant like so many of his friends and colleagues in the architectural & construction field at that very difficult time.

RT Architectural Services was formed in July 2009 by Richard Thomson as a result of the economic downturn.

As a Chartered Architectural Technologist, this seemed the perfect opportunity for Richard to provide a quality service to client's directly, hence the birth of RT Architectural Services Ltd.

RT Architectural Services Ltd has developed a well established client base through good quality practice values, delivering dynamic vision and reality to the client's ideas and aspirations.
