Our History



Rutland’s history goes back to 1930 with a talented, structural engineer named James  Clement Hughes. He started a Structural Engineering Consultancy business, JC Hughes and Partners designing steel reinforced concrete structures primarily at coal washing plants and collieries across the UK. Coal was then a major source of energy for the UK and new and upgraded collieries were being built in large numbers.
