MEng (Hons) CEng MIStructE
ASSOCIATE DIRECTOR
Associate Director Robert Bath joined Whitby Wood following completion in 2018 of his work on the new US Embassy building in London.

He was on-site civil engineer for the US Department of State (Overseas Buildings Operations), a challenging role that included six contract extensions, regular reports to Washington and a meet-and-greet with President Obama. It further strengthened his already well-developed abilities in the delivery of highly complex large-scale projects that require organisation and attention to detail.

Outgoing and self-motivated, he has worked on both sides of the construction industry fence: as structural engineer in all stages of the design process; and as resident engineer for mixed use, commercial, listed building and high rise projects. Projects include The Place (the ‘baby’ Shard) in London Bridge Quarter.

He says a thorough understanding of construction practice from a contractor’s point of view is invaluable in the development of effective engineering solutions and smoother delivery. Seeing projects get built, thinking on his feet, the huge variety in his work — these are things that get him going.
