Contract Instructor

Richard Huot is a licensed practicing architect and works closely with firm partners and consultant groups on a regular basis. In his capacity, he has worked with clients in both the public and private sectors, on small and large-scale projects and in a multitude of occupancy/construction types. Geographically Richard has worked on projects throughout the country; including: Ontario, British Columbia, Nunavut, Alberta, Prince Edward Island, Newfoundland and Labrador and the Yukon. These varying contexts have provided him with a working understanding and knowledge of the variations in building regulations, climatic conditions, as well as appropriate building architectural responses.


Prior to Richard’s experience in architectural practice, he also worked as a carpenter’s apprentice working on many small residential projects. This allowed him the opportunity to develop a hands-on  appreciation and  understanding of the work of skilled trades as well as the on-site issues that arise and require to be addressed for an effective building envelope and architectural vision to become reality. His interest in hands-on work has impacted Richard’s design work and has given him an understanding of the combinations of materials involved in building envelopes as well as creatively thinking about design issues through a problem solving lens.
