Interview with Richard Davies

If you had to pick one, which is your favourite Carpenter Oak project you’ve worked?

British Normandy Memorial – It was an interesting project that resonated with me because of my military background.  It was also something that was long overdue.

When not in the yard, what do you enjoy doing?

Trail running adventures with my dog on Dartmoor and the South West Coastal Path.

If stranded on a desert island, which three people would you take?

Bear Gyrlls, to keep you fed and teach you how to build a boat, Craig Charles, complete with record collection for a good soundtrack, Sir David Attenborough, for his stories.

What music do you listen to?

Funk and soul is recreational choice and dance music when I am running.  I am a “mood music” person.

What is the funniest film ever made?

It has to be The Hangover

What do you enjoy most about working at Carpenter Oak?

Fortunate to be in the most amazing location where I can run daily.  I love the diversity of projects and the way each is embraced with the same creativity and importance, regardless of value or scale.

Do you have a favourite quote?

Only those who will risk going too far can possibly find out how far one can go – T.S. Elliott

Where is your favourite place in the world?



I started my working life as a trainee chef at the Savoy in London.  After spending several years working in London I decided the join the British Army.  During my 10 year career in the military I was lucky enough to travel the world and visit some great places – and also some not so great!

After leaving the military in 2006 I spent eight years working as I private security consultant in Middle East.  It was whilst working overseas that I took the decision to begin studying for my health & safety qualifications.  I joined Carpenter Oak in January 2020 as Health & Safety Manager.
