Gillian Ogilvie MEng (Hons), CEng, MICE, MIStructE

Director (Edinburgh)

I graduated from Newcastle University in 1999. Since graduation I worked as both a contractor and a consultant, joining Will Rudd Davidson in 2005. I have design and construction experience in all major construction materials and experience in retail, residential, commercial and public buildings amongst other things.


I have worked in multidisciplinary project teams and use this experience to bring a proactive “can do” approach to my projects. I manage a team of engineers and technicians within the office to deliver design solutions to our clients.


My past experience includes projects ranging from large civil engineering structures (Tunnels for Heathrow’s Terminal 5) to small domestic extensions and everything in between.


I am also a registered SER Certifier within the Practice and, as part of our ISO9001:2015 accreditation, I manage the administration of the Quality Management System.


In my spare time I like to travel the world and my most memorable holiday was a trip to Nicaragua.  Friendly people, beautiful Spanish inspired colonial architecture and amazing erupting volcanos, not to mention the turtles nesting on the beach in their thousands.  Unforgettable!
