Engineering consultant Travis Baker joins RSK

October 26, 2022

RSK, a global leader in the delivery of sustainable solutions, is further strengthening its engineering credentials and its relationship with major UK housebuilders with the acquisition of Travis Baker, the civil, structural and geo-environmental engineering consultant.

Founded in 2006, Travis Baker has a 40-plus team working across two offices in Birmingham and Nottingham with an annual turnover of £4.5 million in the last financial year. Rob Travis, Dave Baker, Dave James and Ted Wake will continue to lead the business as directors.

Travis Baker’s longstanding clients include Redrow, Bloor Homes, Barratt Homes, Persimmon, Taylor Wimpey, Miller Homes, Bellway and Keepmoat Homes. Recent projects include the major redevelopment of the Selly Oak Hospital, Birmingham, a 50-acre mixed use development at Beacon Business Park in Staffordshire and 2,000 new homes in Northamptonshire.

Joint Managing Directors Rob Travis and Dave Baker said “Travis Baker has joined the RSK Group because it offers a diverse portfolio of projects around the world in technical disciplines that are both complementary to and supportive of much of what Travis Baker already does. This acquisition unlocks further growth opportunities not only for the business, but for our skilled engineers specialising in geo-environmental, civil and structural engineering.”

As RSK continues to deliver its ambitious growth strategy it is now comprised of more than 175 companies, employing 10,000 people. The Group’s annual turnover at the end of FY22 is expected to be in excess of £800 million, more than double the previous year.
