Principle Architect

Richard Goddard has been working in architecture since the late 1960’s and has a wealth of knowledge regarding the building industry.

A rare breed having initially qualified as an architectural technologist before studying architecture and becoming a Chartered Architect.

Richard has experienced architectural design abilities, expert knowledge of building principals and considerable technical expertise in producing workable solutions to the most challenging of architectural problems.


I take a personal approach in understanding the unique needs of my Clients and the individual challenges that each project presents.

A large focus of my work is for design-build projects commissioned by developers and contractors.  My practice is highly skilled in producing working drawings and details to an exceptional standard.

Formed as Springfield Building Design Partnership in 1990, the practice is located in the 'Old Town' area of Swindon. With extensive experience in housing, commercial and industrial design projects, there are few challenges I haven’t tackled. 

Whether it be small residential homes or larger commercial projects I ensure skilful management, project documentation and design team leadership to produce a building that is achievable within your set budget.
