Gareth Atkinson


I am an Engineer and Urbanist with a passion for well-functioning architecture, conservation and urban design/place making.  I joined Civic Engineers in 2014 and  head up the London Studio, along with Rob Westcott.

I have an extensive portfolio of completed projects across the UK which include new buildings, complex refurbishments, subterranean developments, historic buildings, landscapes, streets, masterplans and more unique installations spanning over a varying array of sectors.

As a strong advocate in the art of freehand sketching to help solve, explore and communicate engineering designs I enjoy teaching others. I champion Civic Engineers’ in-house training programm and am also a visiting lecturer at the University of Creative Arts where I help architectural students get to grips with structural form.

I am passionate traveller and spent much of my early profession visiting various countries across the world taking in different forms of architecture and environments.  A particular highlight was driving through the Valley of the Kasbahs in the southern foothills of the Moroccan High-Atlas mountains.

Outside of the studio, when I am not busy on my next DIY project, or being a dad, I can be found frantically peddling around the countryside on my bright green bicycle.  Another of my biggest passions is snowboarding, I have a distinctive helmet.
