Innovative. Integrated. Client-centered. Rushing’s approach is a refreshing shift from traditional engineering and sustainability consulting firms. Founded as a new model for consulting engineering, we generate holistic designs that support and enhance the vision of our clients. We view buildings and their systems interdependently—not as separate elements—and provide a full spectrum of integrated engineering and sustainability services to support and execute this approach.

In the same way that the industry responds to changing technology, codes and demand, we take a flexible and adaptive approach to design and project delivery. We listen carefully to our clients and project teams, tailor our participation based on the specific requirements of each project and work collaboratively to achieve project objectives and goals. As we collaborate with our partners in shaping Seattle and its surrounding areas, we learn valuable lessons that inform both our future projects and our role within the industry.

We view buildings and their systems interdependently, not as separate elements. That’s why we provide a full spectrum of integrated engineering and sustainability management—in areas of expertise you might not expect from a typical engineering firm.


We focus on the essentials. We tailor our participation based on the specific requirements of each project. We’re involved with all the key stakeholders—owners, architects, contractors—from conception to completion, and work collaboratively to achieve overall project objectives.


We always strategize how to bring the design to the construction market. We work closely with our clients to define all of the parameters of a project and the specific criteria for success.

Rushing was founded to create a new model for consulting engineering. When you work with Rushing you can always count on the following:

Integrated design—We approach each project with a whole building/whole site perspective and work closely with the project stakeholders.

Flexible project delivery—We consider all the variables and assist in determining the type of delivery that makes the most sense for each client and each project.

Value analysis—From cost control to project rebates, helping our clients maximize and manage their budget is an important part of everything we do.

Straight talk—We’re honest and direct with our clients and team members. We’ll let you know what we really think, even if that means telling you something unexpected or that may be difficult to hear.

Sustainability consulting—Our in-house sustainability experts deliver flexible, custom, and dedicated sustainability expertise to assist owners and design teams in achieving their environmental goals.
