Gordon White

Chartered Engineer, Managing Director

Gordon White is a Chartered Engineer with 30 years experience in Civil Engineering design. Over his career Gordon has provided Civil Engineering design for a wide range of projects varying from housing developments comprising many hundreds of houses to business and industrial parks to themed landscape gardens. One of Gordon’s favourite developments is Citywest Campus where he has provided Civil Engineering consultancy services for over half his life. GWCE’s offices are within Citywest Campus in an area where he first stood in 1992 in the company of a large excavator in the middle of a wheat field digging holes to see if the ground was good. Gordon continues to work as a consultant to the developers of the campus.

In 2016 Gordon set up Gordon White Consulting Engineers to continue the works carried out by the Civil Engineering department of Fahy Fitzpatrick Consulting Engineers (which had voluntarily closed) which he had led. Through GWCE Gordon continues to provide Civil Engineering services to projects of all sizes, from a domestic extension to multi-storey apartment blocks.

Gordon also has a long-standing interest in the area of Legal Mapping and was one of the Engineers Ireland representatives on the Interprofessional Task Force on Property Boundaries whose report was published on 2014.

GWCE - A New Look

A note on our logo and its evolution

The ‘Golden Spiral’ or ‘Fibonacci Spiral’ used in the GWCE logo is a spiral
constructed from rectangles whose sides’ lengths are in a ratio known as the
‘Golden Ratio’, also known as the ‘Divine Proportion’. This ratio is commonly
used in art, architecture and engineering to give pleasing (and stable)
proportions for anything from a picture frame to a colonnade. The Golden Spiral
also appears in nature in the shell of the nautilus shellfish and the whorls of
ferns, some of the most ancient animals and plants on the planet.

The image of the spiral also evokes water flowing in a pipe and the Greek letter Ø (phi) which is used in Civil Engineering to represent the diameter of such a pipe is also the letter used to represent the aforementioned Golden Ratio.

The original logo, shown below the current one, was designed on a napkin in the “Cantina” Mexican fast food outlet in the Topaz service station on Citywest Avenue and drawn by a Civil Engineer in AutoCAD.  The new one is a more modern and contemporary look, but maintaining the core design element. 

Topaz is now Circle K with a new logo and a new look.

The “Cantina” is now a “Wow Burger”

And the GWCE Logo has now been designed by a designer.
