Evolution of Lowther-Rolton

Transformational Leadership 

From the early beginnings of Lowther-Rolton (L-R), we have striven to provide precise, efficient Professional Engineering advice and documentation. This originated in 1987 when David Rolton and Peter Lowther laid the foundation and established our company’s values. 

How We Have Evolved 

Bob Dodd led the company from establishment until 2015, bringing his trademark focus, dedication, and knowledge to bear on all aspects of the Company’s work. L-R originated the design and engineering for many complex lifting operations, with a focus on tower lift systems. However, we also became increasingly associated with the growing area of Third Party Technical Audit, Safety Check and design verification. Our Clients acknowledge that our engagement and the use of this system greatly reduces the possibility of an incident, delay or rework during their Projects. This leads to more efficient Project delivery

Raising the Level of Industry Safety 

We consider that Bob’s legacy in all of the places the Company operates – USA, UK, Australia, Brazil, France, Iraq, Indonesia, and China, among many others – is the increased safety awareness and professionalism now prevalent in the Construction industry. The culture of safety that we maintain on behalf of our Clients is an integral component to the success of our company. Under Bob’s leadership, now continued by Doug Ferguson, we have maintained an impeccable safety record.
