Robert E. Burke PE, LEED AP

Senior Principal / Board Member


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, then PageSoutherlandPage, 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.

The source of his interest in science and technology projects stems from his introduction to Austin as a student in the University of Texas Architectural Engineering program. During that time, Bob witnessed Austin’s emergence as a leader in the high-tech industry, and was determined to contribute to maintaining the city’s leadership role in the decades to come. In his nearly 30-year engineering career he has managed complex project teams comprised of people from multiple Page offices, resulting in many buildings that have had significant impact on Austin and the surrounding region in a variety of industries crucial to Austin’s economy.

Bob started his career with Page four years after graduation and was soon integrated into the firm’s extensive healthcare engineering practice. He quickly assumed responsibility as lead engineer on hundreds of healthcare projects throughout the U.S. and overseas, including all of the firm’s military healthcare projects in the past three decades.
