After 20 years at one of the world’s largest engineering and architectural consultancies, Atkins, Richard founded ‘Monitac’, an ‘anything you can imagine’ shipping container conversion design company based in Dubai. As the landscape became more competitive, Richard looked for niche markets to explore and found success in the design, manufacturing and construction of ‘Smart Camps’. These ‘Smart Camps’ utilized monitoring equipment, mesh networks and machine learning to make camps run more efficiently and with less overhead.
While building several high profile worker camps for the oil & gas industry, agriculture, and defence the Monitac team evaluated solution after solution.
Not satisfied with the technology available in the market, he formed a joint venture with IOT research and development laboratory ‘Binarybean Technologies Inc.’. together they developed several ‘modular industry specific’ solutions that utilized current, inexpensive IoT technology to solve problems, monitor and manage buildings. From this, Modutech was born.
Richard is Modutech’s resident chief engineer and in charge of innovation.
“Modutech is a modern, low-cost solution for building faster, managing easier and ultimately using IoT technology to make modular construction better”.
Modutech solutions make modular buildings more efficient, sustainable, and cheaper to manage. IOT research and development
