Stephen Rudd BEng (Hons), CEng, MIStructE, MICE

Director (Glasgow)

My primary role is to assist Brian Walker, manage the overall business activities in Glasgow, to build and promote the business. Together with my fellow Director, MJ, I lead the design team in Glasgow and am responsible for the day to day running of the office. I am also a Registered Certifier of Structural Designs, and together with Brian Walker, am responsible for certifying projects the Glasgow office undertakes through SER.


I have 15 years’ experience in Structural and Civil Engineering, including projects from large multi-million pound projects to domestic alterations. I have a good understanding of the design, approvals and procurement process of new build, renovation and conservation/preservation construction projects together with infrastructure developments. I am involved in projects from inception/master planning stage through to completion. My design expertise includes many forms of superstructure and foundations with experience in numerous materials. I also have experience in Façade Engineering, Pressed Metal Structural Framing systems and ‘Novel Structures’. I have 12 years’ experience in structural surveying and investigation, acting as reporter for many varied elements including walls, buildings and bridges.


My experience covers all sectors in the construction industry including:
  • Public Works
  • Hotels
  • Student Accommodation
  • Historic Buildings
  • Public Art Installations
  • Residential
  • Healthcare
  • Education
  • Coastal Engineering
  • Offices
  • Process Engineering
  • Roads
  • Industrial/Engineering
  • Infrastructure Projects
  • Drainage


I am extremely enthusiastic about engineering and the ‘as built’ environment as a whole. As my friends and relatives will testify, I am forever commenting on how I perceive a structure has been built, from iconic landmarks such as the Eiffel Tower, to airport curtain walling.


I am a keen sportsman, competing from an early age in sailing and skiing, which culminated in my becoming an assistant ski instructor and representing Scotland in sailing competitions.


I have also trained in Martial Arts for many years which keeps the fitness up and have achieved my 1st Degree Black Belt in a mixture of Arts whilst also becoming an Apprentice Thai Boxing Instructor.
