Encinitas-based Dudek, which does environmental and other construction-related consulting, has opened a new office in Pasadena, to serve the Los Angeles metro region.

It is the ninth office in California for the employee-owned Dudek, which was started in 1980 and does engineering and natural resources management projects throughout the state with a staff of 300, a company statement said.

The Pasadena office is led by longtime Los Angeles-based consultants Eric Wilson and Ruta K. Thomas. Wilson is formerly with the consulting firm AECOM, and Thomas joins Dudek from Atkins.
