About Us

We provide innovative and “outside the square” solutions

At Redco Consulting Professional Engineers we have been providing general engineering design and consulting services throughout New Zealand since 1993. Our services include structural engineering design, fire engineering design and seismic assessment and strengthening. We have offices in Auckland, Tauranga and Hawkes Bay and employ over 20 staff.

We have built a reputation for cost-effective solutions for building projects. We focus on building strong working relationships with our clients. Our dedicated team of professional engineers have extensive experience providing innovative solutions for residential, commercial, industrial and agribusiness developments. In addition we provide engineering design for other applications including swimming pools, tents, sunshades & canopies, retaining walls, container based buildings, prefabricated modular buildings and steel water tanks.

Our offices are well appointed with fully-networked computer facilities for analysis, design, draughting and general office duties. With these resources, no project is too small or too large for us. At Redco we are all about giving our clients an ingenious, cost-effective solution for their building projects.

Our History

Graham Rundle photoOur consultancy grew out of the practice of Graham N. RUNDLE Professional Engineer Ltd. Graham Rundle is the founding Principal of Redco and is a Professional Engineer as well as being responsible for the overall direction of the company.

Graham graduated with a Bachelor of Engineering (Civil) from Canterbury University in 1970. He held his first graduate position with Beca Carter Hollings & Ferner before heading overseas for his ‘OE’ (Overseas Experience). In London he gained valuable experience working for a number of consulting engineering practices. In 1975 he returned to New Zealand where he joined Dukker & Potter Ltd as a Graduate Engineer. In 1981 he accepted a Directorship of Dukker & Potter Ltd. Graham moved to Tauranga in 1983 to establish branch offices for Dukker Potter Swan Ltd and Dukpot Services Ltd.

In 1992 Graham struck out on his own practicing as Graham N. RUNDLE, Professional Engineer Ltd. This practice quickly grew into what we now know as Redco.
