Richard Hughes Electrical Section Manager


After over 17 years working as Electrical Section Manager for the Department of Estates, Richard Hughes is retiring at the end of August.

Martyn Whalley, Director of Estates, said: "We are sad to say goodbye to Richard after all these years.  Richard's role in Estates has been critical in the expansion of the estate and the electrical infrastructure.  One of the many projects he was responsible for was installing the largest DALI lighting control system in Europe to campus.  His experience and expertise will be missed".

As for the future; Richard has recently started taking guitar lessons and has rekindled his love of photography, something that will come in handy during his future travel itinerary.

Fortunately, for the next six months Richard has kindly agreed to carry out part-time consultancy work for the Department so we will be seeing him every now and again.
