Who We Serve

HVAC/Mechanical Engineering

Baptist Health Women’s Center

This Women’s Center was designed as a tenant improvement to an outpatient surgery center for Baptist Health, a major hospital system. The center aims to become a top-tier diagnostic facility to serve both screening and diagnostic patients, utilizing lighting and materials to create a comfortable, calming, spa-like atmosphere.

A full complement of radiologists treat patients with advanced technology and procedures, including tomosynthesis mammography, ultrasound, stereotactic core biopsy, and a full-function digital Optima MR450w 1.5T MRI.

The design also includes a major renovation, an addition to the building entrance, and lobby areas to make the center more inviting and accommodating to the surrounding urban environment. The clinic is designed to occupy three floors with access to consulting, image reception, and radiology from the ground floor lobby and exam rooms, mammography ultrasound, and stereotactic/needle procedure areas above.

Campus USA Headquarters

RS&H designed this headquarters facility to reflect the strong, stable culture of this financial institution. The 11-acre site was master planned to accommodate future development needs, including a parking garage and three additional buildings. The site also features a formal plaza to the south and an informal garden to the north.

The headquarters features a three-story structural steel building with a brick facade and a hipped metal roof. The design reflects the credit union’s association with the nearby college campus and uses the vernacular prairie school style.

In addition to the headquarters building, there is also an adjacent 4,500-square-foot branch facility. Both buildings are designed to create a cohesive campus environment and accommodate the credit union’s growth for the next 20 years.

Nutritional Chemistry Laboratories

This facility is a remodeling of existing office space to accommodate nutritional chemistry testing laboratories. Designed using BIM-Revit software, the components include offices and laboratories for bacteriology, vitamin chemistry, analytical chemistry, proximate chemistry, and sample storage and support. Fulfilling the need to provide a fast track fit-out of existing two-story space for a contract research organization, RS&H set weekly team meetings and managed the programming and design effort within three months.

The existing building was gutted and reinforced structurally to accommodate the additional weight and vibration attenuation requirements for laboratory work. Existing stairs were utilized for vertical circulation and a new elevator was added to assist in the deliveries of samples and equipment to the second floor. A new mechanical room was added to accommodate the air handlers and water systems. A new mechanical yard was added to accommodate the emergency generator and cryogenic tanks for liquid nitrogen.

Laboratories were planned on an 11-foot by 11-foot planning grid and designed to enhance process flow within the facility. All laboratory utilities were fed from above to allow for adaptive changes in the future.

Mainland High School

Mainland High School is a three-story, 340,000-square-foot new high school based upon the Academy Concept. This project addressed many urban planning issues due to its prominent location in Daytona Beach. This new signature high school is designed for a 2,100 to 2,460 student capacity with an interior courtyard with four main secure entries providing “natural” security.

The school provides parking accommodations for 750 vehicles with student, staff, and visitor parking separated. The gym and auditorium are designed for ease of after-hours and community use. Event parking is placed close to the gym and auditorium.

Mainland High School’s design provides complete physical education facilities as well. Football practice, baseball, and softball fields are grouped to share future lighting.

Student traffic flow has been simplified and is controlled with a traffic light on Clyde Morris Boulevard. Bus traffic is separate from other traffic and allows for ample stacking space on site.

Expansion for classroom space has been provided. This new school footprint will allow the existing high school to remain operational during construction.

Bishop International Airport Terminal Expansion

The Bishop International Airport Authority retained RS&H to create a dynamic, new facility with the flexibility to meet future growth. The terminal color and material palette reflects a contemporary image inspired by the local automotive heritage. RS&H also designed an additional four gates and associated hold room area.

Another expansion project designed by RS&H has nearly doubled the size of the ticketing lobby, improved the building automation system and communication infrastructure, doubled the handling capacity of baggage claim, and incorporated a computerized access control system and EDS-based baggage screening system.

RS&H created high-quality renderings of the project so that the client, public, and other project stakeholders could better visualize the design. These visualizations aided in making final adjustments, including changing the final finishes and other design elements. The final renderings were also used as a public art display during construction, so the public could visualize what the airport would look like when completed.

The terminal has been honored with numerous awards, including Michigan DOT’s Project of the Year and the American Institute of Architects’ Project of the Year. RS&H was also selected as MDOT’s Consultant of the Year. Additionally, the airport authority’s new logo was inspired by the strong side profile of the terminal roofline. 

NASA Mobile Launcher

RS&H has been a key designer for the three Mobile Launcher Platforms since the Apollo Program to launch the Saturn V rockets in the 1960s and 1970s. Currently, RS&H is designing the modifications to the Mobile Launcher to accommodate the Space Launch System, the vehicle which will replace the Space Shuttle. The presented challenge is to increase the Mobile Launcher’s base to handle the Space Launch System weight. It will weigh more than twice as much as the Apollo, and thrust from the two, large Solid Rocket Boosters, and a powerful core with up to five Space Shuttle Main Engines. The modifications are expected be complete by 2016.
