VINAY MATKAR

BE (civil engineering) MBA (finance) CEng (India)
ASSOCIATE DIRECTOR, INDIA
Associate director Vinay Matkar joined Whitby Wood Pritamdasani in 2019. His career has embraced two sides of our industry — engineering consultancy and client-side project management — giving him a thorough understanding of the factors influencing construction.

A proactive manager with strong leadership qualities, Vinay’s success is grounded in sound technical knowledge and a rational approach to problem solving. After working as a structural consultant for a number of years, he chose to experience large-scale construction from the client point of view. He wanted to see how decisions are made. Now back to consulting, his understanding of the processes and drivers is proving invaluable.

His portfolio includes many residential, commercial, hotel and IT campus buildings, including high rise and multi-structure projects. He is particularly interested in specialised projects such as 200-250m towers, schools, hospitals, large commercial structures, hotels and data centres.

Vinay loves the exceptional design challenges and variety in engineering. He was attracted to it from the start, wanting to know when he was a boy how big cranes work. A couple of years after graduating, he joined Whitby Bird India (co-founded by WW design director Mark Whitby) as its second employee, and later worked alongside Mukesh Pritmadasani, Whitby Bird’s head of projects in India and now WWP’s managing director. Both stayed with the company after it merged with Ramboll. Vinay has worked before with many members of our team.

Vinay holds a high-rise licence for the municipal corporation of Greater Mumbai.
