Celebrating 70 years in Australia

This year marks the 70th anniversary of Rider Levett Bucknall (RLB) in Australia – a rare and special opportunity to come together and celebrate our unique story.

Since our establishment in Melbourne in 1949, RLB has enjoyed close working relationships with many in the Australian property and construction industry and abroad. With our experience, people, and global reach, we derive immense satisfaction in taking our partners on a journey to success.

We recently marked the tenth anniversary since Rider Hunt formed a global practice to become Rider Levett Bucknall (RLB) in June 2007. The past decade has seen substantial change in our industry globally, and RLB enjoyed significant growth over this period.

Today, the foundations, values and ethos upon which the first Australian partnership was established still hold strong.

It is with great pride that RLB has been voted the number one global cost consultant partner for the fourth year running in the Building Design World Architecture 100 Survey for 2019. This endorsement recognises the high quality of our cost management, project programming and advisory expertise – our network has grown to more than 120 offices, and 3,600 people, with global business turnover now over US$300 million – allowing RLB to provide flawless execution and independent thinking to bring imagination to life.

It is my great honour and pleasure to congratulate all who have contributed to 70 successful years of operations. These commendations are extended to the many clients and partners who have worked with us to shape the future of Australian cities and to create vibrant, connected communities.
