Richard M Hansen, Director of Engineering and Division Manager, DMJM H&N, 1-25-07
Richard Hansen completed a part time M.B.A. in 1996 while working full-time which was shortly followed by a 2-year posting to Singapore for Oscar Faber, where he established a successful MEP practice along side the existing structural practice. While in Singapore Richard was involved in the design and delivery of system-integrated buildings (intelligent buildings) which were designed to optimize occupational usability and environmental performance. He returned to the UK in 1999 and later that year transferred to the London office becoming Business Unit Director in 2002. In this role he was responsible for the administration, management and technical standards for a multi-disciplinary group of engineers and specialists engaged on the design of environmental systems on a range of projects largely centered around the commercial office and media sectors. He also had responsibility for the integration and coordination of the engineer practices with the Sustainable Development Group. He completed another part-time Masters Degree in Property Valuation and Law in 2005 to gain a wider understanding of the financial structure of the property industry.
In 2006 Richard transferred to DMJM H&N in the U.S. where he is now Division Manager for the Orange office with responsibility for an architectural and engineering production team of over 70. He also is Director of Engineering with responsibility for the coordination of the national engineering capability for the company and the adoption of holistic and integrated approaches to building design. The role included responsibility for the adoption and coordination of global best practices in engineering and building design.
DMJM H&N was formed in 2000 by the merger of two AECOM companies (Daniel, Mann, Johnson, & Mendenhall and Holmes & Narver) to create one of the most powerful design organizations in the world. DMJM H&N provides a broad range of planning, architectural, engineering, and construction services through our professionals stationed worldwide. Firm headquarters are located in Los Angeles with operating offices in Orange, San Francisco, San Diego, Phoenix, Albuquerque, Houston, Miami (Coral Cables), Chicago, Columbus, New York, Washington D.C., Denver, Colorado Springs, Fort Worth, Dallas, Detroit, Los Alamos, Richland, and Kuwait City.
