Basil Richardson
Studio Director

Basil is a specialist in the management and coordination of large scale projects, leading many of Bates Smart's commercial, residential and education work through their design and delivery. His experience includes university buildings, concert halls, theatres, libraries and high end residential and commercial developments, both in Australia and abroad.

With an extensive knowledge of detailing and construction and a particular focus on the design and integration of facade systems, Basil has coordinated the documentation of several high profile jobs in Sydney, most recently the design development of Australia's tallest standing timber commercial office building 25 King in Brisbane, the School of Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering at UNSW, and a 30-storey commercial building at 177 Pacific Highway in North Sydney.

Basil has been involved in several jobs from the initial design concept through to construction documentation. His experience in the management and coordination of large projects makes him a key component in their design and delivery. He is particularly experienced in identifying and resolving conflicts which may arise during the documentation and construction process.
