Bristol office takes off!

December 2019
Whitby Wood has opened an office in Bristol, by Temple Meads station, and we have just been appointed to provide engineering services for a commercial redevelopment project in the city.

Whitby Wood Bristol off

Although we have been working in the West Country for a while, and as a practice making community connections such as taking part in the University of Bristol industry mentoring scheme, establishing a base in Bristol is a positive move. The office is located at the Interchange in the Engine Shed (pictured) — Isambard Kingdom Brunel’s engine shed (1841), part of his Temple Meads station complex for the Great Western Railway. We love this association, as engineering history is important to us.

We offer our full range of services through the Bristol office, as we do around the country. For the redevelopment project, we are providing structural and civil engineering, and flood risk assessment.

Whitby Wood Associate Director Rob Bath: “We’re delighted — and excited — to have won the commission in Bristol. We will be helping our client redevelop an existing 1990s office building in the Temple Meads area. With Whitby Wood, you get the experience of the whole team but our presence in Bristol is undoubtedly a plus.”

We are also very pleased to be hosting a University of Bristol undergraduate for the academic year 2020-21.
