Richard M. Fletcher, AIA


Richard Fletcher is a native of North Augusta, South Carolina and a principal architect at Cheatham Fletcher Scott Architects + Designers. He encourages clients to approach their projects with a clear vision: “The biggest challenge in the design business is defining the problem.” Richard plays guitar and sings – mostly where no one else can hear. He cannot cure his addiction to golf. Somewhat of an armchair naturalist, he enjoys being outdoors, hiking, identifying trees, and looking at critters. Richard enjoys basking in the glory of Clemson’s three football national championships.
