Gary Robinson - CEO
Gary is a structural engineer with a background in both consultancy and research. Because of this he is passionate about high quality engineering design and project delivery. He has led and delivered numerous projects for some of the UK's leading structural practices and has also published in leading engineering journals and conferences.
Through starting up and growing an engineering practice, he experienced first-hand the difficulties, costs and risks associated with finding the right people and resources to deliver the larger and more prestigious projects you need to grow your business. However, having seen how contemporary projects are being efficiently, consistently and cost effectively delivered within the web and software industries; he believed that the same principles could be applied to engineering design, calculation, drawing and modelling tasks.
