Richard Spencer


Technical Director

Since joining ROD in 2015, Richard Spencer has applied his expert knowledge of design standards, PMG and PAG processes to the design of major projects in Ireland and Northern Ireland.

He was instrumental in the roll-out of ROD’s BIM compliant naming conventions and workflows, which led to the company achieving BSI Level 2 BIM certification in 2018, and continues to promote the use of BIM on projects, applying his expertise in 3D road modelling software to the roll out of OpenRoads Designer on ROD’s major road schemes.

Richard has more than 20 years’ experience in road design. In addition to taking schemes from inception through detailed design, including preparing CPO, EIA and NIS documentation, he has acted as expert witness at oral hearings.

Richard's recent project experience includes the N5 Ballaghaderreen to Scramoge Road, Athy Distributor Road, N61 Ballymurray to Knockcroghery Road and N61 Tulsk to Gortnacrannagh schemes, and the highways elements of the Narrow Water Bridge project.
