For 25 years the whitbybird name has been synonymous with world class structural engineering design and technical innovation. In 2007 the company joined forces with the Ramboll group, known for its holistic approach to engineering consultancy, with operations in Northern Europe, Russia and the Middle East and India.
As part of Ramboll, the business is part of an international delivery network extending to 24 countries and has access to a global engineering talent pool of 8,000. Backed by an employee ownership scheme – the Ramboll Foundation – the group is financially strong long term.
Mark Whitby and Mike Crane remain in their positions as Chairman and Chief Executive continuing their legacy of unique leadership and forward-thinking approach.

- Buildings & Design

Mike Crane, Ramboll UK Chief Executive said of the occasion: “It has been an amazing journey over 25 years from a small practice to one of the most respected structural engineering groups ever. As Ramboll we have an exciting future and it’s great to be part of it.”
Mark Whitby, Ramboll UK Chairman added: “Our clients can continue to rely on our talented engineers, our energy and unique engineering approach but now we have more.
