Practice Statement

Will Rudd Davidson are a Structural and Civil Engineering practice, not just engaged in mainstream structural and civil engineering design, but also in specialisms such as temporary works design, façade engineering, conservation engineering, dispute resolution / expert witness and lead consultancy services. We reach markets as far afield as Antigua; however concentrate primarily in the UK market. We have two principle offices in Glasgow and Edinburgh, led by Brian Walker and Angus Roxburgh, supplemented by long established associated offices in Warrington and Oban.

All our commissions are led by very experienced engineers with a deep understanding of all the disciplines within a design team. We like to think we have a unique approach to our work in that our interests are much wider than that of a project itself. Our strapline, 'not just engineering' should speak for itself. We strive to bring energy and enthusiasm to our commissions, alongside the very serious matter of a high quality delivery of service and product. We are professional, agile, broadminded, easy to deal with, 'can do' biased and social.
