Getting the job done : Robert Bath joins
Most recently, Rob worked as on-site civil engineer for the US Department of State for the new US Embassy building in London, which certainly sharpened his ability to fearlessly deliver highly complex large-scale projects. But his experience is much wider than that. Other key projects in his career as a resident engineer include The Place (the ‘baby Shard’, adjacent to London Underground tunnels) in London Bridge Quarter, 5-7 St Helen’s Place (three-level basement, facade retention) off Bishopgate in the City, and Victoria Circle (three medium-rise buildings over a common basement) by Victoria Station in London..
As a structural engineer, Rob has worked on a wide variety of projects at all stages of the design process, including concept design, feasibility studies, site investigation works, structural and foundation design, and contract supervision. He has worked in the commercial, education, heritage, retail and refurbishment sectors, amongst others, and this depth of experience in getting things built, large and small, is a huge asset for Whitby Wood.
Rob enjoys working with people. He is a team player with a sharp eye for detail and keen sense of how to design economically for construction as well as achieve client and architect aims. He grew up in Cornwall but now lives outside Bath, opening up the possibilities for Whitby Wood in the Bristol region and the wider southwest.
