Richard Buckley (Managing Director)
Richard began his career working in the design and construction of major civil engineering works, and spent many years in the far east working on undergound railway projects.  He spent time working for contractors and in Local Government before settling as a consultant leading an infrastructure design and planning support team.  He finally set up Callidus in 2008.

Richard has a wealth of experience to call upon in relation to the coordination of engineering construction with other constraints at the planning stage of projects.  He has presented evidence to public inquiries on transport and drainage matters on many occasions, all with successful outcomes on his technical discipline.
