Director of Preconstruction
Richard E Barnes

Originally enrolled in college to be an architect, Richard quickly realized his brain was wired for construction instead of design. As a life-long DIY kind of guy, he thoroughly enjoys building and constructing.

Richard’s formal career in construction began in 1985 when he went to work for an EIFS/Stucco subcontractor. In 1992, he went to work for Mulkey Enterprises, “a prominent drywall and ceiling contractor in the southeast”, estimating and managing commercial projects.  Richard worked for Mulkey for over 21 years. In 2016 Richard joined Southern Wall Systems, bringing with him over thirty years of EIFS and drywall experience.

A very dedicated and detail-oriented professional, Richard appreciates that it’s a total team effort at Southern Wall. Everyone cares and contributes from top to bottom.
