Our Story

Established in 1977, Robert West embarked on its journey as an engineering consultancy, driven by a mission to provide unparalleled civil engineering design solutions with a personalised touch.  With a founding ethos centered on senior staff involvement and a commitment to excellence, our firm quickly earned a reputation for delivering top-notch service tailored to each client’s unique needs.


Our approach is rooted in a deep understanding of our clients’ requirements, coupled with a hands-on methodology to ensure exceptional service delivery.  Fueled by versatile and adaptable teams, we tackle projects of all scales with unwavering enthusiasm and dedication.

In 2022, a significant milestone was reached as Proes acquired a majority interest in Robert West, marking an important chapter in our journey.  This partnership solidifies our position within the esteemed international Proes Group Companies, in ensuring the continuation of our founding principles while unlocking new avenues for growth and collaboration.
