Script Details

Please read a sample of the script. 

Before World War II, most architects and engineers practiced in small independent firms. As the threat of war became imminent, a group of Florida professionals anticipated the impact of a national military build-up. Believing that the demands of mobilization could be best met by combining capabilities in a single organization, engineers ************************************************************************, merged their separate practices on February 14, 1941 into the comprehensive architectural and engineering firm that ************************* still represents today.
In the beginning, **** emphasized military projects in support of the war effort, and in 1942 completed designs for aviation support facilities at the ********************************************************************************************************************************************. During the firm's first three years of operation the staff grew to over 30 employees to meet the accelerated wartime schedule of such military projects as the Moody Army Air Corps Base in Valdosta, Georgia, and provided various services to military airfields around Florida including Lake City, Sanford, Avon Park, Drew Field, Hobe Sound, Fort Myers, Gainesville, Perry, Orlando, West Palm Beach, Jacksonville Naval Air Station, and a new Army Air Corps Base in Boca Raton.
During the late 1940s and early 1950s, returning military personnel augmented the firm’s staff as the workload steadily increased and post-war construction boomed. ****** design projects continued to grow into diverse markets including airports, power plants, industrial facilities, and defense installations. The firm’s transportation practice began in 1954 with the addition of bridge design services for Volusia County and projects such as Florida’s Turnpike completed for the Florida State Road Department, currently known as the Department of Transportation. In 1959, the firm expanded by opening a second office in Tampa, Florida.
In 1961, NASA selected **** over other engineering firms worldwide to develop the design criteria for the Apollo/Saturn Mobile Launchers. At the time, NASA’s headquarters was located in Alabama, which led to **** opening an office in **********. Subsequent NASA contracts included the design of three Saturn V Mobile Launchers, which were constructed between 1963 and 1965.
In 1967, **** acquired an interest in the firm Environmental Engineering, which became the Environmental Division of the company. In 1968, the firm’s Planning Division was organized and added as a major discipline. Also in 1968, **** acquired partnership interests in Southern Nuclear Engineering in Dunedin, Florida, and the firm of Ware, Lewis & Eaton in Jackson, Mississippi. In December of 1969, the original partnership was converted into the corporation of *******************************************************.
Throughout the 1960’s, **** had also expanded offices throughout Florida including Orlando and Plantation, as well moving the *********************************** in conjunction with NASA’s move to Kennedy Space Center.
As the company continued to grow, ******************************************************* added seven subsidiaries and affiliates including: PLANTEC Corporation/PLANTEC Realty Corporation, which provided commercial real estate brokerage services, development economics and market feasibility studies; Intraspace Designers; RSH Constructors, a licensed general contracting company; RSH International, primarily doing work in the Middle East; RS&H of North Carolina, providing architectural and engineering services; RS&H Land Surveyors; and Environmental Science and Engineering, headquartered in Gainesville, Florida providing a full complement of environmental services.
In 1977, the company acquired 80-percent of the firm of McMinn, Norfleet, Wicker and Associates in Greensboro, North Carolina. In 1978, Reynolds, Smith and Hills Architects-Engineers-Planners also acquired Trigon Construction Management.
Throughout the 1980s, the firm and its subsidiaries established regional and branch offices across the United States and internationally. The company also expanded its services to include architecture, engineering, planning, landscape architecture, land surveying, construction, environmental sciences, interior design, real estate, and management and economic consulting.
In 1984, the firm further expanded its services by introducing construction engineering and inspection services.
By the mid 1980s, ******************************************************* and its subsidiaries employed over 1,300 people, and consistently ranked among the top 30 international design firms by Engineering News-Record.
In 1987, the firm was acquired by a Connecticut-based investment company and in 1989, announced a buyback of the core architecture, engineering, planning, and environmental business to become an employee-owned firm.
On June 28, 1990, the buyout was complete and the new **** began utilizing its long-established expertise and reputation to meet its clients’ needs.
The new company structure included the North Carolina presence, **********************************. The firm continued to specialize in construction and engineering inspection services for roadway and bridge construction through ****************************, which became a wholly owned subsidiary in 1995.
At the time of the buyout, the firm remained headquartered in Jacksonville and had offices in Tampa, Orlando, Plantation, and Merritt Island, Florida. The 1990s saw the expansion of RS&H to Michigan, Illinois, and Texas. In addition, ******* opened major field operations throughout the state of Florida. In 1998, RS&H acquired the architectural firm of Lemuel Ramos and Associates and established the Miami, Florida office. In the mid-1990s, the firm reorganized from a discipline and geographically based organization to a program structure centered around six client sectors.
Expansion continued at a rapid pace in the 2000s. Offices were opened in the states of California, Colorado, Georgia, Massachusetts, Minnesota, Missouri, North Carolina, Utah, Virginia, and Washington, DC. In 2001, the firm of Sylva Engineering Services was acquired, expanding ****** current Houston, Texas operations into Austin. In the late 2000s, additional offices in Texas were added to include Dallas and San Antonio. By the end of the decade, **** had become a nationally recognized, full-service consulting firm whose programs were being ranked as the largest in their area of expertise. RS&H had also received numerous project awards and multiple associates obtained national leadership posts.
By 2010, **** had 33 offices nationwide and employed over 800 associates.
Today, the firm remains organized into six client-focused programs, each with its own multidisciplined staff of architects, engineers, planners, environmental scientists, and technical personnel. Clients are served by teams of specialists selected for the expertise and experience they can provide in specific areas of interest.
The Aerospace and Defense Program is dedicated to rapid, innovative, and cost-effective solutions to meet the increasingly complex demands of the aerospace and defense industry.
The Aviation Program meets the needs of the aviation industry for terminals and support buildings, airfield facilities, and planning and environmental services.
The Corporate and Commercial Program is organized to serve corporate and development clients that seek an economic return on their investment through design, commercial real estate, and program management services in new and renovated facilities.
The Education, Health and Science Program provides design and consulting services to each of these market segments to provide the latest in industry knowledge, methods, and technology.
The Transportation/Infrastructure Program provides planning, environmental, design and program management services to state, regional, and local public infrastructure providers specializing in highways and bridges, marine ports, passenger and freight rail, transit, water resources, utilities, and community development.
******* provides construction engineering and inspection services, as well as engineering management services for infrastructure projects including: highway and interstate construction, bridge construction, toll facilities, railroad construction, weigh-in-motion facilities, and hurricane recovery and relief.
