Richard Statham

My first job was an apprentice joiner at the age of 14, working for the family business, L. Brown+Sons, Wilmslow.
My first task was hand planning a 17th century oak cruck truss for a cottage in Styal. (I received £5.10 shillings per week + 5no, brass washers for my blisters !!!)
I worked with my father prior to University, as a QS for the company.
The most notable project was a £2 million contract for Barclays Bank, Radbroke Hall, Knutsford.

Very tragically this was my fathers last job as he died at the age of 47. I then completed my educations as Architect at Nottingham University.
My work experience was working for IDC Ltd, International Design Consultants, Stratford-on-Avon as site architect for the building of a £4 million office block for Cambridge University Press.

After graduation I worked for Thomas Rayson Partnership who were responsible for the restoration of Blenheim Palace Woodstock for the Duke of Marlborough for some 3 years.
I then worked independently for completing work for St. Peters College Chapel.
Christchurch Precentors Office and University College, 50 St. Giles, a 16th century building, Grade I listed building.
This project was awarded an Oxford Preservation Trust Award for the Stonework repairs.
I completed feasibility studies for Schiller International University, resulting in their purchase of the Oxford + County Secretarial College.
I was responsible as lead consultant for the Planning Inquiry for the Waterstock Motorway Service Station, appointing a Planning Barrister on behalf of the Client.
As Architect I have been responsible for the design of many residential schemes in Oxford and have worked with Bruce on many of these, including the conversion of a St. Nicolas Russian Orthodox Chapel into 4 apartments.
My experience and expertise extends to restoring the Clarendon Building, Broad Street Oxford, adjoining Sir Christopher Wren’s. Sheldonian Theatre. This project involved the complete updating of the building for the Oxford University Press, contract value of some £1.5 million.
I instigated a close examination of the structure of the building, only to discover the beam ends were almost completely rotten with dry rot. I instructed the builder to adopt English Heritage procedures resulting in fibre glass rods and resin , thus preserving the integrity of very substantial beams some 300 x300 square . The building would in all probability have collapsed within 5 years otherwise.
