National Employee Appreciation Day

Today is #NationalEmployeeAppreciationDay and we’d like to say a big thank you to our dedicated team who are a strength to our company. We’d also like to take this opportunity to shine a light on one employee…

Richard Di Duca is our in-house Architectural Designer and has been with Hinton Group for over 8 years. After graduating in 2013 from Birmingham City University he joined Hinton Group on maternity cover for one of our long-standing employees Lycia. Paving a new role within the company, Richard cemented his place and now has a broad role covering working up feasibility studies, master plans, and spatial planning to name a few. He has an unwavering approach to the fast-moving office environment whilst always finding the time to improve. Recently Richard has sought out and taught himself a new architectural rendering software called Lumion which has propelled our in-house CGI capability to the next level. A few words from the team:

“Rich is an invaluable member of our team and on a daily basis goes about his work with great pride, diligence, and enthusiasm.”

James Hinton, Managing Director


“Rich never seems to have a bad day and is always happy to help, no matter what is asked of him. Not only is he a pleasure to have in the office but his design abilities, particularly with CGIs of our forthcoming developments, are a real feather in the Hinton Group cap.”

Jon Hinton, Development Director


“Richard is always willing, always eager, always adaptable. Always seems to enjoy what he is doing.”

David Wintle, Design Director


“Rich has entirely off his own back transformed the standard of CGI images we as a company can produce, the value this has added to our marketing and planning material has been huge. Rich can always be relied upon by the rest of the team, he adapts amazingly to changes on projects and schedules, always working to tight deadlines. His creative skills are a massive asset to our team.”

Lycia Warwick, Development Manager 

From everyone at Hinton Group we would like to thank Richard for all his efforts and for the positive vibes he brings to the team. As a gesture from the company, we would like to gift a £100 John Lewis voucher and hope he will treat himself to something nice. (No doubt he will be straight down the tech isle!)
