Bob Burke is a quiet force behind the Austin, Texas cityscape. His ability to lead and integrate diverse teams of architects and engineers to deliver extremely complex projects has had an impact on the structural landscape of the city’s high tech, healthcare, education and public sectors.
Since joining Page in 1988, Bob has been involved in developing some of the firm’s most technical projects for prestigious high-tech clients who helped put Austin on the international map, such as Samsung, Dell, AMD, Hospira, Applied Materials, and Hewlett Packard to name a few. Through this experience with Page, Bob has developed an extensive portfolio of national and international experience by following many of these clients to new business locations throughout the US and globally.
Bob’s leadership has contributed to the success of some of Page’s most award-winning projects by developing creative engineering solutions and integrating them with the architectural design. Examples include the Austin Convention Center, the Austin Bergstrom Airport Barbara Jordan Terminal, Computer Sciences Corporation, Chickasaw Nation Medical Center and the AMLI on 2nd mixed-use high-rise residential project in Austin’s 2nd Street Retail District. His experience with these projects has reaffirmed his strong belief in the firm’s legacy and philosophy that providing engineering disciplines in-house offers a distinct advantage to clients.
Bob oversees the delivery of all projects within that office. He is modest about his personal contributions to the city, but admits, “I am committed to Austin. I love calling this city home and can’t imagine a better place in which to have built my career while enjoying Austin’s excellent quality of life over the past 30-plus years. I am proud of the roles my firm has played in helping to make Austin what it is today.” He feels fortunate that the firm is making major contributions to the future success of the city that he loves.
