Richard Beastall

Richard began his working life at tp bennett on office and headquarter projects for companies including NatWest, Britannic Assurance and Microsoft. Recognising the need for a more specialised approach, in 1997 he helped to establish our interiors division, focusing on workplace projects.

Since then, Richard has delivered projects for many major clients, including Johnson & Johnson, PwC, Guardian Media Group, Freshfields and recently UBS’ HQ, gaining awards along the way. His approach is inclusive and creative, taking in workplace strategies and business objectives, and always acknowledging the needs of employees.

This expertise has led Richard to advise developers on workplace design, as well as a large number of diverse UK and international organisations at board level. Passionate about design, he has been on the management board for the British Council for Offices (BCO) since 2005, and is a regular conference speaker, helping to set the agenda on the future of workplace design.
