Navigating this year’s challenges hasn’t always been easy. But that didn’t stop RS&H from delivering results that exceeded our clients’ expectations.
The RS&H team designed the 11-story Brown & Brown headquarters in Downtown Daytona Beach – positioned to provide sweeping views of the Atlantic Ocean. The office stands over the Daytona Beach skyline as the home base for the company, with 10,000 teammates located throughout the U.S. and offices in London, Canada and Bermuda.
Between the floor-to-ceiling windows, open workspaces, collaboration zones and a rooftop bar, the space marks the beginning of the next steps for the leading insurance brokerage firm.
When COVID-19 struck, our Defense team needed to find a virtual alternative to the typically grueling design charrettes held for military clients. Under normal circumstances, the team would spend five full days locked in a room, with designers working on concept designs for the proposed project well into the night.
But the team discovered that the lack of physical presence wouldn’t hold the teams back from moving big projects forward in a virtual design charrette for three new facilities for F-22 aircraft at Virginia’s Langley Air Force Base.
RS&H has directed the preparation of a comprehensive airport master plan and updates to the strategic relationships and roles of the three airports owned and operated by the Salt Lake City Department of Airports (SLCDA). For over two years, the team has worked to determine the future path of facility development.
This year, the master planning process was just entering another public engagement phase when the pandemic began disrupting the aviation industry.
But with the help of virtual tools and new technologies, master plan efforts and stakeholder engagement continued without missing a beat.
A focal point on July 4, the Acosta Bridge over the St. Johns River in Jacksonville, Florida, has been the longtime site of fireworks that light up the sky.
This year, the RS&H team assisted in leaving a light show that remains long after the fireworks have gone. The Acosta Bridge now holds over 4,000 linear feet of color-changing, RGB, LED fixtures. Programmable by remote, the new lights can chase, flash, marquee, dim and twinkle in color schemes as diverse as a rainbow.
Currently, NASA’s Origins Spectral Interpretation Resource Identification Security-Regolith Explorer (OSIRIS-REx) spacecraft is orbiting a near-Earth asteroid called Bennu – a mission that will offer insights into how planets formed, how life began and more.
To support this ambitious operation, RS&H designed a new Asteroid Sample Curation cleanroom suite within Johnson Space Center in Houston. The approximately 10,600 square foot space will house samples returning to earth from several key missions.
When the North Carolina Department of Transportation (NCDOT) was faced with a mammoth undertaking to rehabilitate and/or replace more than 90 bridges across the division, they turned to RS&H to manage the contracts for each bridge project.
In the end, the successful project brought about major takeaways for bridge rehabilitation projects and successfully minimizing impact on the public.
RS&H is assisting with the Phase IV expansion of the High-Water Alert Lifesaving Technology (HALT) system in Bexar County, Texas – providing drivers with advance warning of impending floods and flooding events.
The risk for motorists in these conditions is real. Over the last five years, an average of 118 people have died in flash floods annually. According to FEMA, nearly half of those fatalities occur in vehicles.
In Bexar County, the home to San Antonio, Texas and several low-lying areas susceptible to flash floods, officials are working with RS&H to curtail those numbers and the risks for drivers.
VyStar, the largest credit union headquartered in Northeast Florida, set out two years ago with RS&H to design not only the best office environment in Jacksonville, Florida, but the best office in the banking industry.
The result was a fresh, modern space that allows employees opportunities to interact frequently, drive collaboration and creativity and fully enjoy their jobs while working on projects.
The $59 million, 23-story, 369,000 useable-square-foot tower now serves as a bright space filled with character.
The Arlington National Cemetery (ANC) will hold a 100th-anniversary ceremony for one of their most iconic memorials – the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier – in 2021.
In preparation for the ceremony, the RS&H team provided field investigations and multi-discipline design services for areas throughout the Memorial Amphitheater on the site, reception hall and the plaza that surrounds the memorial.
To ensure that the ceremony within the amphitheater could be accessed by all, the team also incorporated accessibility improvements and accommodations that fit with the amphitheater’s design.
