Richard Hodge brings a deep understanding of the means and methods of construction to the design process.
Richard brings his construction experience to his role as technical reviewer for all projects. In this role, Richard coordinates consultant work and ensures that each project meets the firm's standards for technical excellence, clarity, and consistency.
Currently, Richard is running the Construction Administration phase of the Foreign Affairs Security Training Center, a hard-skills training facility for the State Department and foreign affairs community. Prior to that, he oversaw quality management for the US Embassy in London, and he has also helped design numerous projects including the Keohane Quadrangle at Duke University, the Charles David Keeling Apartments at the University of California San Diego, and the Stewart Middle School at the Sidwell Friends School in Washington, D.C.
