Richard Barry, Director

Experienced air quality consultant helping to develop industry standards.

After obtaining a BSc in chemical engineering from Newcastle upon Tyne Richard worked in Kent and London as a water hygiene and treatment engineer. He moved into air and ventilation hygiene in 1992 working for Peter Twynam in a business development role. Site system condition surveys and risk assessment services were developed through this period to provide a full consultancy package along with estimating for contracting works essentially ductwork cleaning and air handling remediation.

Richard’s level of experience, knowledge and skills continued development through “hands-on” contract management, with participation in the development of current UK standards as an active member of the HVCA ventilation hygiene policy group. Prior to the formation of AirisQ Limited in 2001, Richard worked as the UK Sales manager for the former air hygiene business unit of Houseman.
