RICS-certified Robert Richardson looks to the future
Robert Richardson is one of the newest members of the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors.
The chartered quantity surveyor, with the structures section of the Ministry of Public Works, has had a 15 year career in construction project and cost management.
Mr Richardson, 36, manages various projects for the Engineering Department.
Previously, he was a junior project manager at Correia Construction following several summer holiday stints with the company.
While with Correia, he managed several multimillion dollar contracts, eventually being promoted to project manager/quantity surveyor.
Obtaining the MRICS qualification was a 15 month journey for Mr Richardson, who said his Public Works team was a strong support network along the way, helping him with studies and allowing flexible working hours.
Mr Richardson plans to establish his own business specialising in quantity surveying, property development and project management.
And he intends to help young Bermudians who are also interested in construction project management.
He said: “At a time when international business C-suite pursuits were pushed and championed, I knew that I would need to find an alternative path to obtain career satisfaction.
“To date, my career has provided me with opportunities to be involved in the development of some of Bermuda’s most innovative infrastructure.
“Having earned the RICS Chartered Quantity Surveyor qualification, I am excited to see what is next.”
