In a recent article published by the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, two contractors were chosen to build the Kingsolver-Pierce Elementary School at Fort Knox, Kentucky. RS&H is the architect for the project and designed the 115,000-square-foot facility that will replace and consolidate two older elementary schools and accommodate 635 students from pre-kindergarten through fifth grade. Construction will begin in June and is expected to be completed by November 2015.
The American Road & Transportation Builders Association (ARTBA) featured a section in its magazine, Transportation Builder, that displayed innovative transportation projects.

RS&H designs have been integral to NASA’s missions since the 1960s, directly advancing the nation’s capabilities to reach space. Our history with Launch Pad 39B and the Mobile Launchers (MLs), two key facilities at Kennedy Space Center in Florida, have been at the forefront of shaping our legacy of serving NASA. This legacy continues to grow as we design groundbreaking projects that help advance our nation’s space exploration.
Faced with increasing demands and costs for potable (safe to drink) water, as well as increased salinity in the shallow coastal aquifer, the Ft. Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport was searching for an alternative to potable water irrigation for 30 acres of mature tropical landscape on its property. The area, known as the Greenbelt, has become a community recreation and exercise area since it was first established more than 20 years ago. To reduce its environmental footprint, the airport asked RS&H to evaluate alternative irrigation options for the landscape.
The Bishop International Airport Authority in Flint, Michigan, was recognized as the Michigan Airport Sponsor of the Year in February.
