The Ryder Alliance, a consortium of likeminded international design practices, has welcomed South African business Ruben Reddy Architects to its growing partnership.
The Alliance, established by Ryder Architecture and Australian practice i2C in 2014, now also includes international operators AzuKo, BIM Academy, Studio IN-Ex, Ravetllat Arquitectura, and Ward Robinson.
Jonathan Seebacher, architectural director at Ryder said, “Ruben Reddy Architects bring a wealth of sports and healthcare expertise and have already provided support to Ryder’s team in Vancouver to secure the new £88m Memorial Gym masterplan for the University of British Columbia.”
Gonzalo Prieto at Ruben Reddy Architects said, “We are delighted to join the Ryder Alliance and are looking forward to sharing expertise with our new partners and contributing to extend the footprint around the globe.”
The Ryder Alliance provides local knowledge and expertise across four continents supported by a global capability of over 450 talented people from nine partner firms. Partner to partner accountability ensures consistency in approach and quality while maintaining independence of each firm. The structure facilitates cross border capabilities to benefit partner’s clients and develop new projects.
The Alliance places collaboration at its heart, sharing expertise across a wide range of specialisms and sectors providing global opportunities for our people and our clients. Embracing digital design tools and employing the newest and best technology, information is shared across a common data environment with each practice working to common procedures adapted to suit the requirements of each country.
Ruben Reddy Architects will join the next annual international forum rotating around the partner locations providing the opportunity for 360 peer reviews of each partner firm to ensure everyone is maintaining the entry standards required to join the Alliance. Participating in the global Great Places to Work and Best Companies to Work For listings, uploading exceptional people engagement and excellent client service and solutions at the core of each firm, these are the foundations on which Ryder Alliance has evolved.
