Telstra ACT Business of the Year - Rudds Consulting Engineers
‘We're keen to encourage companies in the construction industry to focus on environmentally friendly building practices and to raise awareness that using green building methods can improve their bottom line.' Andrew Beattie, Director
Rudds Consulting Engineers is a building services engineering business that prides itself on rigorous quality assurance programs and using integrated technologies that reduce the impact on the environment. The business has origins dating back to the 1960s as D Rudd and Partners. Rudd employees Lou Forner and Andrew Beattie bought the business and launched Rudds Consulting Engineers in 2002, growing employee numbers from 12 to more than 40 today. The business provides a wide range of consulting services for commercial and large residential projects including project management. Rudds promise ‘innovative engineering for the future’ and they practise what they preach, working out of a custom designed, energy-neutral building in Fyshwick and working on innovative developments aimed at increasing safety and lowering energy consumption and operating costs. Rudds’ design achievements include a range of systems for 50 Marcus Clarke Street, the only major 6 Star Green Star building in Canberra’s CBD.
