David C. Rich



At WZMH David was the key designer and team leader on many major institutional and corporate projects in Canada, China, and other parts of Asia, as well as on a number of international design competitions.

At the same time, he undertook numerous urban design studies – for private investment interests as well as for government. Many of the projects with which he has been involved, developed from significant early studies and reviews, before decisions were made to proceed with built form and the formal appointment of an architectural team, and when expenditure for consultant services has to be very tightly controlled.

David Rich now brings this substantial experience to the table as an independent consultant, able to offer advice to clients during the strategic decision making stages of the development process.
