RS&H, Inc. (RS&H) is a facilities and infrastructure consulting firm in the United States. The privately held architectural, engineering, planning, and environmental services corporation is headquartered in Jacksonville, Florida, where they also provide clients with facilities and infrastructure consulting.
The company was founded in 1941 and grew slowly through the years before being purchased in 1987 by Hunter Environmental Services. Three years later, after negotiating for a year, a group of eight senior RS&H employees that included Leerie Jenkins and David Robertson bought the company's architecture, engineering and planning operations and incorporated in the State of Florida in 1989. Their goal was to rebuild the company and concentrate on its specialties. The firm is one of Florida's largest privately held architectural service companies with 26 offices located in ten Florida cities, as well as California, Colorado, Georgia, Illinois, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, North Carolina, Ohio, Texas, Utah and Virginia.
RS&H operates in six segments:
In 2004, RS&H was awarded the contract for design and engineering the reconstruction of the Bridge of Lions in St. Augustine, Florida. The $77 million job was expected to take five years to complete. In order to retain the historic character and structural integrity within space constraints, the design required numerous innovations and unusual construction methods.
Roads & Bridges magazine named the Bridge of Lions as fourth in the nation's top 10 bridges for 2010. Projects were evaluated based on size, community impact and challenges resolved.
On November 6, 2009, Jason Rodriguez, a former employee who was dismissed in June 2007 for performance-based issues, entered the Orlando offices at RS&H and shots were fired. One person was killed and five others injured. He was arrested later that same day.
