History[edit]

Cardno building, Brisbane.

The original engineering practice from which the Cardno group evolved commenced operations in Brisbane, Queensland in 1945 as Cardno & Davies, founded by engineers Gerry Cardno and Harold Davies.

During the post-war boom years through to the 1970s, Cardno & Davies designed and supervised water supplies, bridges, dams and roads throughout Queensland, as well as sewerage systems in Brisbane and regional towns.

In 1999, Cardno & Davies merged with McMillan, Britton & Kell, a consulting engineering practice based in New South Wales. At this time, the Company was known as Cardno MBK and combined employed around 250 staff.

Cardno Limited listed on the Australian Securities Exchange (ASX: CDD) in 2004. At the time of listing, Cardno employed a little over 500 staff.

In 2014, Andrew Buckley retired after 17 years at the helm of the company. Andrew was succeeded by Michael Renshaw, previously Executive General Manager – International with Cardno. As Cardno's CEO, Michael will continue to lead Cardno's strategic growth program.
