Our Story

Bob Taylor Engineering

Long before Bob Taylor Engineering, Inc. opened for business in 1981, Bob Taylor was engaged and active in the construction industry. From his high school years working as a summer concrete laborer on a construction site at St. Mary's College of Maryland, he was proud to be a member of the construction team that erected and renovated academic facilities on the local college campus. As a part of this team, Bob learned construction techniques and honed his knowledge of concrete testing techniques. He realized the importance of sound construction foundations. From among the senior tradesmen, Bob sought out and chose his mentors wisely, listening intently to inspectors as they reviewed the construction work. He took enormous pride in a project that received high marks and in the realization that the job was well done.

Desiring to make engineering and construction his life's work, Bob enrolled in the civil engineering program at the University of Maryland, College Park. While at UMCP, Bob used his early construction experience to secure a position as a construction inspector with the Harbor Tunnel Thruway project, coupling valuable professional experience with his academic curriculum. After graduating with a Bachelor of Science degree in Civil Engineering in 1972, Bob secured a position with a Baltimore based engineering/survey firm and was tasked with conducting flood studies as well as designing and drafting wastewater treatment plant systems.In 1976 Bob returned home to St. Mary's County to serve as assistant engineer with the St. Mary's County Metropolitan Commission and then to serve as the vice president and head of  the engineering department for a local survey firm.

By 1981, Bob recognized that there was no local firm in St. Mary's County conducting soils and concrete testing to support the local construction community. No stranger to the business world, Bob learned sound business principles and developed high ethical business standards from his parents, Loretta Taylor and the late Francis Taylor, owners of Taylor Gas Company. With the blessing of his family and early support and encouragement from his wife, Linda, Bob Taylor launched Bob Taylor Engineering, Inc. As president of BTE, with Linda working by his side, Bob guided BTE to become an industry leader today providing concrete testing, soils testing, subdivision and land planning services. Bob continues to personally serve as the chief liaison between BTE and its clients.

Historic St. Mary's City Commission administrative staff, archaeologists, and Board members are honored with a 2017 Maryland Historic Trust Preservation Award for the Lead Coffin Crypt Project at the Reconstructed Chapel. 

Bob Taylor Engineering, Inc.  provided pro-bono civil engineering services for the design of the crypt structure, and Triton Metals, Inc. designed and engineered a unique 7' x 7' metal frame that supported glass for the viewing window.  As a result, visitors to the Reconstructed Chapel can see the lead coffins through glass floor panels in the place where they were originally discovered.  Watch our video!
