The Jubb Winchester office are delighted to welcome Rob Lowe as Principal Engineer for Civil Engineering. We know that rumours of his move were abound, so we are pleased to be able to officially announce his appointment.
Rob has led a very varied career, following a desire to see every part of the engineering landscape before he ‘settled down’. Having graduated with a Master’s in civil engineering from Portsmouth, Rob worked for a time in Hampshire County Council’s maintenance and road adoption department before moving into the private sector with Bellamy Roberts. His subsequent move into White Young Green’s London Office gave him valuable experience of the Masterplanning of large-scale projects, many within the residential market. Rob now joins us from WF Brown where he developed and refined his detailed engineering design capability.
Rob Comments “I am Winchester born and bred, and when the opportunity came up at Jubb to develop the Civils team and project scopes I was eager to take the role, expand it, and put my mark on it. Now I have started I am keen to get going and find the people and projects I want. I am not a micro manager and hope to build a team of like-minded professionals that I can help guide and encourage to find the right answers themselves.
“Initially, because of my background and contacts, as well as supporting the wider existing workload in Winchester office, I will be looking to develop our client base in the residential sector. Once we have established a strong residential portfolio and team, we would also like to develop our commercial and industrial portfolio too which chimes with the wider Jubb business plan.”
Rob is working toward becoming a Chartered Engineer, which is a long-term goal of his and one that Jubb will support him in achieving in 2021. We are very pleased to have him onboard and support him in his role and ambitious plans for civils in Winchester, and throughout the UK.
“Another of my aims is to increase the profile of Jubb Winchester’s civil offering. The company is well known locally for structural engineering, but less so for civils. I want to move civil engineering from a supporting service to developing our own projects and clients.”
