Bob Froud Joins Labosport UK

It is with the greatest of pleasures that Labosport UK can announce that Bob Froud has joined our consultancy business unit at Senior Consultant level. His first day is 2 April, 2024. This appointment is to help deliver an increasing order book for our consultancy division. This will bring our consultancy business unit up to 7 people, consisting of 3 Senior Consultants, 3 Consultants, and 1 Special Projects Consultant, assisted by the other members of Labosport UK’s staff.

Much of the UK sports industry will know Bob well, but some of Labosport’s worldwide team and clients may not, and we look forward to integrating him into the Labosport family. We are extremely pleased to obtain Bob’s services, as he will provide and supplement expert levels of knowledge and assistance in facility consultancy where our already strong presence is growing daily, as well as in other areas of sports surface science that Bob has previous experience in.

Bob, a polymer technologist, started work at the Greater London Council Scientific Branch in 1978 in the polymeric materials testing laboratory where, amongst other things, he helped develop the sports surface performance tests we use today along with looking after London’s sports facilities.

On abolition of the GLC in 1986, Bob became a Senior Consultant at MSc Consultants and Centre For Sports Technology test laboratory for the following 32 years. During this time, he undertook the design and project management of hundreds of outdoor sports build projects of all types and sizes including being involved in the London 2012 stadium track. Since leaving MSc in 2019, Bob has been with ETC Sports Surfaces within a multiple skill role including designing, pricing and preparing planning applications in connection with the construction and resurfacing of outdoor sports facilities.

Bob is looking forward to joining the Labosport team as a Senior Consultant, where he will be undertaking full consultancy projects from concept, through design and planning to construction and certification. Bob’s years of consultancy knowledge will also help to deliver the expansion of training and knowledge base of both Labosport UK’s business and consultancy operations and Labosport Group staff.
