Bob Forand, PE, leads BCC Engineering’s Fort Lauderdale office and serves as Structures Manager for projects throughout Florida.

In addition to managing the design of bridges and other structures projects, especially for the Florida Department of Transportation, he leads many major marketing pursuits, spending time evaluating work opportunities and teaming partners to continue the firm’s success.

Forand first discovered BCC Engineering while working for a competitor. The ability of the then-smaller BCC Engineering to win and execute sizeable, high-profile projects was intriguing, so Forand joined the firm in 2009, never regretting the decision.

One of his signature projects at BCC Engineering is the repair and rehabilitation of a bridge known as the “old seven-mile bridge” just south of Marathon, Florida. This bridge once served as an important link to Key West. The structure was originally built by railroad tycoon and one of Florida’s original east coast developers, Henry Flagler, in 1912. On track for design completion in 2016, the local community has rallied to support this landmark, where famous sunsets dip below amazing natural settings.

As a Florida resident, Forand takes pride in creating bridges and infrastructure in the community and preserving historic structures for future generations.
