Robert Myers 1936 - 2023
6th September, 2023

It is with deep sadness that we announce the passing of engineer Robert Myers, the co-founder of structural and civil engineering practice Price & Myers. Robert died peacefully late last week, after a short illness. Those who worked with him remember Robert as a kind, bright, tenacious, curious and caring man, endlessly interested in people and things.

Robert was born in Pluckley, Kent in 1936. He attended Frensham Heights School, before attending London University and Imperial College. After graduation, Robert spent two years with Ove Arup & Partners. He moved to Cementation Construction where he worked for five years as a French-speaking engineer in London and Tunisia. In 1968 he joined Arup Associates, where he met Sam Price. Robert established Price & Myers with Sam in 1978. He helped grow the practice over the following 29 years before retiring in 2007. Robert was an Honorary Fellow at the RIBA.

Over the course of his career, Robert worked on a range of projects great and small. Some of the more notable include the Marylebone flyover (1967), the residences at Somerville College (1968), Sutton Place (1983), the restoration of the Old Royal Greenwich Observatory (1993), Dublin’s Millennium Footbridge (1999) and Domaine Seguemagne Le Thoronet in France (2003).

He is survived by his wife Skimp, and his daughters Mary, Emily and Alice, who lost their mother Angela, Robert’s first wife earlier this year. He is also survived by his brother, Bernard and his sister, Anne, also by his sons-in-law Simon and Matt, and his grandchildren Louis, Beth, Tom, Jo, Alex and Daniel.

The practice will be compiling a tribute to Robert. If you would like to leave a remembrance, then please email
