Project Description

Rae Anne Rushing

CEO, co-founder

As co-founder of Rushing, Rae Anne built the company from a visionary idea—be collaborative, innovative, and keep a laser focus on making your clients successful. With more than 30 years in the industry and a wide bandwidth of relevant experience, Rae Anne’s primary focus is strategic planning and management of engineering and construction services for Rushing. She also has a deep understanding of construction contracting, which delivers pinpoint accuracy to every budget conversation. Rae Anne believes cost and constructability information is critical early in the conceptual phase, allowing a full project analysis to inform important decisions. Whether you work directly with Rae Anne, or are a member of her team, her enthusiasm, energy and ability to transform obstacles into opportunities makes each project yield the benefits of integrated design.

Rae Anne is committed to community involvement, giving generously of her time, energy and experience to many local non profits. She has been involved on the national level with the Clinton Global Initiative, focused specifically on introducing more young women to the engineering professions—bringing the current gender disparity in the field into balance.

Rae Anne is the past president of the local chapter of ASHRAE Puget Sound, which received two national accolades that year: 2002 ASHRAE Best Chapter Nationally and 2002 National Technical, Energy and Government Affairs Best Chapter.
