Richard will oversee HDR’s growth throughout the UK and western Europe, focusing on a power program in Scotland, and an industrial facilities and logistics program in England. Richard was previously HDR’s UK director of the civil and structural engineering business.

“We’re excited to have Richard lead our growing program within the United Kingdom and beyond,” said John Steinert, group president of Resources at HDR. “He brings to us a wealth of leadership experience and deep connections within the region. We look forward to watching him continue to foster those relationships and make new ones within our markets.” 

With three decades of experience in civil and structural engineering, Richard has held roles as a design engineer, senior associate and director. He is an expert in the built environment, working on complex and large-scale projects across the globe, including Twickenham Railway Station in London, Leith Docks in Edinburgh, Scotland, and Australia Broadcasting House, in Sydney.

“HDR has global experience within its power, waste and industrial practices, including environmental compliance and engineering on some of the United States’ largest transmission line projects,” Papworth said. “I am looking forward to merging this expertise with our talented and knowledgeable local teams to provide innovative solutions for our clients here in the UK.”  Papworth will stay involved in his London portfolio of projects.
