Rod Burton


I have over 35 years’ experience in the construction industry, and have been a Partner at Pick Everard for 18. I am a Chartered Civil Engineer and commenced my career working in the water engineering sector. From the early nineties, I was Project Manager on several multi-million pound defence projects covering sports facilities, hangars, offices and accommodation blocks. More recently, I have worked in other sectors including local government, education (secondary schools, further education colleges and universities), healthcare, blue light, sport and nuclear, using a variety of procurement routes, working both for Contractors and Client bodies. Overall project values have generally ranged from £0.25m to over £50m.


I am a member of the Chartered Institute of Water and Environmental Management, the Association of Project Managers and the Chartered Institute of Arbitrators and, as well as the Taunton office of Pick Everard, I have a responsibility for the Practice’s Cardiff and Manchester offices too.

I have lived in Somerset for 30 years and am married with two grown up sons.
