Richard Wheal

Richard joined Airey & Coles in 2016 after 2 years working for Fairhurst in their Taunton office. While studying at The University of Southampton from 2001, he progressed along a varied educational path including Mechanical Engineering, Environmental Engineering, and Architecture, before eventually graduating with a BEng (Hons) in Civil Engineering.

Following graduating Richard’s thirst for knowledge and adventure led him to spending the next 7 years travelling the world with considerable time spent in China, Myanmar, Slovakia, India, and Indonesia. During this time he gained his PADI Divemasters in Thailand, developed a motorcycle ambulance for a charity in Cambodia, and worked as a Cowboy in Australia.

After a considerable time abroad Richard decided to build on his experiences and gained a further 2 Master Degrees in Marine Renewable Energy and Civil Engineering, the later, a Distinction from The University of Plymouth.

Richard specialises in interpersonal relationships in his pursuit of building excellence, and his ethos aligns perfectly with that of Airey & Coles.
