Gavin Brundell announced as new director of G C Robertson & Associates


G C Robertson & Associates (GCR), a leader in civil and structural engineering services in East Anglia, is pleased to announce the appointment of Gavin Brundell as its new Director, effective from 1st April.

Gavin succeeds John Davis, who has been a pivotal figure in the company since 1989. Celebrating five decades of engineering excellence, GCR continues to set the standard in the industry.

Under John’s leadership, GCR has expanded its reach and strengthened its reputation as a provider of tailored engineering solutions. And, as John transitions into retirement over the next two years, GCR is excited to welcome Gavin Brundell to lead the company into a promising future.

Gavin brings over two decades of experience in structural and civil engineering, with a track record of success across a range of projects from bespoke residential builds to major commercial, healthcare, and educational facilities. His extensive expertise, particularly in historical and heritage building conservation, positions him well to lead GCR as it continues to innovate and grow.

“Taking the helm at GCR is not only a privilege, but also a significant responsibility” says Gavin. “My goal is to ensure that GCR remains at the forefront of engineering excellence, meeting the ever-evolving demands of our industry and continuing to serve the communities of East Anglia with integrity and expertise.”

John Davis, the departing Director of G C Robertson & Associates, expressed confidence in his successor, stating, “We’re very fortunate to have somebody with Gavin’s experience stepping into this role—he’s a like-minded soul, deeply committed to our values and vision. His extensive background in engineering, coupled with his approach to complex challenges, makes him uniquely qualified to lead GCR into its next chapter.”

GCR has been at the forefront of civil and structural engineering for nearly fifty years, offering premium engineering services that are sensitive to client’s unique requirements. The company’s dedication to client satisfaction has made it a trusted name in engineering across the region. Over the past five decades, GCR has been involved in the development and restoration of prestigious and local landmarks, including the historic Woodbridge Tide Mill, the vital Aldeburgh Life Boat Station, and the Deben Yacht Club.

Last year, JMS Legacy, a Suffolk-based family-owned management company known for supporting businesses across construction and environmental sectors, acquired GCR. This partnership has further enabled GCR to develop its service offerings and expand its impact.
