Rob co-founded Axiom Consultants in 2018 after working for over 22 years in the public and private sectors. His expertise spans primarily between Structural/Geotechnical and Civil Infrastructure offerings and he participates actively in many of the projects Axiom works on serving as a project manager, design lead, and owner's representative.
Rob brings a unique perspective to every project he participates in, blending an eye for planning, design, and construction. His expertise in public and private offerings - and the merging of the two - lends a uniqueness to a project that can be hard to replicate. The unique nature of this background coupled with a level-headed approach and a respect for all of the parties at a table have earned him a broad based respect in the industry. With an ability to bring parties together and make projects happen that might otherwise seem impossible, Rob can engage at a variety of levels and provide insight and expertise where it is most needed.
Rob is the Building Services Manager for Axiom Consultants.
