After working in the business for approximately 10 years, Lou Forner and Andrew Beattie purchased D Rudd and Partners in 2002, employing 12 experienced team members.

Under the directorship of Lou and Andrew the newly formed Rudds Consulting Engineers Pty Ltd grew to over 60 engineers, receiving the highly acclaimed Telstra ACT Small and Medium Business of the Year Awards in 2013. The team also expanded operations, setting up permanent residence in Melbourne in 2014.

On 01 April 2020 Rudds Consulting Engineers merged with ACOR Consultants group.  Andrew and Lou remain in leadership roles as shareholders, directing projects and providing multi-disciplinary engineering and consulting services to a broad range of clients.

ACOR Consultants was founded in 1997, to create a group of engineering professionals working together, with a truly unique set of personal and professional values, providing specialist consulting services.  From humble beginnings, we’re proud to have grown to a nationwide business, underpinned by values that are integral to how we interact with our clients and each other.

Over the years ACOR Consultants has built many strong and trusted relationships, establishing a national network of key clients. Our values inform everything we do.  With offices around Australia, we strive to work as One Team, One ACOR, putting our clients’ needs to the forefront.
