Stuart Lawrence

BIM Partner

Education & work experience

After leaving college at 18, Stuart was unsure about what he wanted to do, but had always enjoyed reading blueprints and technical drawing. He contacted New Horizons, a scheme set up to help young people get an apprenticeship. They helped him get a position as a Junior CAD Technician at RHB in 1999. He was also enrolled on an IT course, and the rest, as they say, is history.

The next step in his professional development journey is to gain the ISO 19650 requirement for BIM in the workplace.

Get to know Stuart

What are your plans for RHB over the next few years?

Due to our networking and marketing strategies, the contracts we are taking on are diversifying, and we expect the team to grow.

What do you like most about your current role?

I am a people person, so ensuring the team is happy and the office runs smoothly is my top priority.
I’m also a keen problem solver and tackle any issues head-on, no matter how long it takes to resolve.

Why do you love working at RHB?

Although we consider ourselves a modern company, we pride ourselves on employing what some might call an old-school ‘family’ environment. Everybody at RHB is an essential part of our team.

What keeps you busy outside of work?

I’m a new dad to our lovely little lad, who was born in January 2024. After a few minor health issues, he’s doing well and keeping us very busy! I have a huge family and love it when we all get together.
I play darts when I can, although I'm not quite at the level I was pre-baby I still enjoy a game with some of the guys at RHB!
I’m also a year into completely refurbing our house, so as well as sitting in front of a computer for work, I enjoy getting my hands dirty. It’s coming on nicely! With that and a newborn, it’s difficult to fit in anything else, although we get out socialising when we can!

What is the best business advice you ever received?

Look after your staff, and your staff will look after your business.

What would you do if you won the lottery?

The first thing I would do is buy a pub that serves top-notch food. I’d love to get a run-down old place and turn it around. And, of course, the dartboard would be the focal point in the main bar!

Fun facts

The original game of darts was created as a military pastime during the 1300s in medieval era England.
Dartboards were originally made from waterlogged wood, and this design of dartboard did not go out of production until the 1930s.
Growth rings of trees served as the original inspiration for the design of the dartboard.
The perfect darts game would be finished with only 9 throws, and there are almost 4,000 different combinations of throws that could produce this result.
Darts officially became a sport in 2005.
