Robert Leiper

Senior Engineer / Designer

Do you have any professional certifications?

  • I have a BSBA in Economics and Real Estate and also have my CSLB – C6 Contractor’s License.

What do you like to do in your free time?

  • I must admit, I enjoy my work so when I am “off” I am continually observing, critiquing the design I see around me, and dissecting how things are built. I will walk behind the barrier tape to look at something cool, or crawl under something to see how it is made. I am not shy about it. It is in my nature.

What has been your favorite Gator project so far?

  • KBIS 2013 – because It was my first opportunity to share west coast design ideas and different fabrication concepts with Gator pushing the boundary of our capabilities to know we can be a leader in bringing this type of modern high-end product to our region.
  • Smith Residence – because we handled the complete design package and did some nice steel detailing.
