Senior Consultant, Barry Pike is nothing sort of an industry legend.

His contributions to the heavy civil construction industry as well as complex bridge projects over the past 45 years have had an indelible impact on all our lives.

Barry has only been with us for over 6 months now but his contributions to our current Nowra Bridge projects have been nothing but insignificant. We had the opportunity to chat with Barry as he looks back and shares his experience in the engineering industry.

Have you always known you wanted to be an engineer?

"Surprisingly no, I originally wanted to be an architect but didn't get accepted at Uni! So I ended up studying Civil Engineering and it's the best thing that happened to me."

What do you love the most about your job?

"I love being involved in new infrastructure projects, I think it's very important to stay relevant on what is happening around us. I particularly like being a part of the temporary works component."

Best career advice you have received?

“I saw the advantages in pursuing outcomes that made things easy for the team on the ground. And the KISS approach is fail-safe – it’s never let me down.”

Barry currently leads our Wollongong office and is truly an integral part of the company. Glad to have you with us, Barry!
