Who We Serve

Additions/Renovations/Repurposing

FSCJ Kent Campus Success Center

This project was a phased renovation of an outdated, underutilized library space. The project's intent was to develop a program around a new methodology of teaching and design a space that would truly reflect these new ideals. The project was divided into two distinct phases, which allowed staff to still have access to the library books as needed. Phase 1 was approximately 13,000 square feet and was fast tracked to be operational for the beginning of the semester.  

The space was developed around a series of learning zones and strongly encouraged interaction between the staff and students. Phase 2 of the project was the remaining areas and began approximately one month before Phase 1 was complete. Some key design features of the project are the knowledge bar for group study, the welcome/information desk, and a student and staff graphics area.

RS&H also provided all design and specifications for the new furniture systems and coordination of artwork and graphics.

Wells Fargo Center

RS&H was selected by Wells Fargo to assist them in the relocation of their North Florida Headquarters. This project had an intensely compressed schedule which generated the need for the project to be split into separate bid packages that could be designed, bid and constructed independent and simultaneously to avoid any part of the project slowing down another. RS&H mobilized three different teams of architects and engineers to work on the three separate bid packages. This allowed us to meet the aggressive schedule.  

This 120,000-square-foot interior renovation project involved the relocation of Wells Fargo Corporate offices as well as relocation of the Jacksonville Downtown Store to the first floor of the Wells Fargo Center. The eight-floor renovation includes upgrades to building core elevator lobbies and restrooms, development of new office standards, and implementation of new workstation configurations and finishes throughout. This fast-track project included programming through construction documents, which were completed in nine weeks.

Crowley Maritime Corporation Headquarters

With the goal of reducing its environmental impact, Crowley Maritime Corporation partnered with RS&H to renovate its existing five-story corporate headquarters following LEED practices. The organization also wanted to create a sustainable, open-office environment that would enhance collaboration between associates. 

Innovative features in the renovated facility include waterless urinals and low-flow fixtures, which will reduce demand on the municipal water supply by 40 percent. The team also incorporated low-emitting materials, which will ensure better air quality, and in turn, healthier employees in the office.

The facility has been awarded LEED Silver certification for commercial Interiors.

Jacksonville International Airport

Jacksonville International Airport serves the port city of Jacksonville, Florida. RS&H has provided professional services for Jacksonville International Airport for more than 30 years. This long-term relationship began with our team’s involvement in locating, planning, designing, and overseeing of the construction for a new 18-gate terminal building, two new runways, and all the ancillary facilities for a new 4,600-acre airport site.

The original award-winning terminal design has been expanded three times as the airport spread to 7,000 acres. RS&H-led improvements have culminated in the expansion of the terminal to 700,000 square feet, including reconstruction of the 35-year-old concourses to provide 30 modern gates. Recent projects include a fully integrated 100 percent checked baggage explosive detection system, a centralized security checkpoint expansion, two new 10-gate concourses, a daily garage with 2,400 spaces, modification of the existing garage to an hourly facility with a state-of-the-art space-finding system, a pedestrian walkway with powerwalks and escalators, landside improvements, and roadway expansion.

RS&H has created high-quality renderings for numerous projects so that the client, public, and other project stakeholders could better visualize design improvements. 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 airport is also a showcase for art reflecting the culture and community spirit. Erin Burnett, host of CNN's "Out Front," said, "The Jacksonville International Airport (JAX)…I think might be America's best Airport."

Asheville Regional Airport

Asheville Regional Airport is located in the Blue Ridge Mountains of western North Carolina and serves both commercial and general aviation users. A major renovation by RS&H transformed the terminal, including the great hall area, opening the space for post security concessions and panoramic views. Views of the airfield, tree line, and mountains beyond make a human connection to the natural environment. Day lighting via clerestory windows and a curtain wall of glass illuminate the great hall. A warm material palette including wood and ledger stone from the region compliment the architecture and show case these traditional building materials. The renovation was thoughtfully designed to simplify passenger flow and enhance the total passenger experience.

Rick Husband Amarillo International Airport

Improvements to the Rick Husband Amarillo International Airport terminal include replacing the existing airside concourses and updating the interior functions and material palette. The building design is a response to the site, purpose, form, and climate of the region. The dramatic sweeping architecture of the addition provides panoramic views of the vast Texas Panhandle horizon. A central public space with concessions creates an important social gathering crossroad. The airport is named after Rick Husband, a local astronaut who perished in the Columbia shuttle disaster. Interior details are inspired by modern aviation, the space program, and the area’s cattle industry. A distinguishing feature of the airport is the use of glass-walled passenger boarding bridges that are among the first in the United States.

Lisbon International Airport

The architectural design of the terminal is inspired by Portugal’s maritime history, with a series of masts that support rippling sun shades over the concourse. The modern columns are evocative of the masts of the ocean going vessels that established Portugal as a major influence around the world. The forms of the terminal reinterpret the image with kinetic and floating forms that evoke flight. Sustainable design strategies are an integral part of the design aesthetics. The terminal is designed as a “green” facility, using sun shading, natural air cooling, and radiant cooling to minimize energy consumption. The architecture combines daylight and function, highlighting circulation nodes by an infusion of natural light. People follow light naturally, reinforcing intuitive wayfinding throughout the terminal. That flow of spaces is supported by a changing palette of materials and shapes, making the experience one of continuous discovery and delight.

Springfield Branson National Airport

The diversity and richness of Southwest Missouri is reflected throughout the design of this new airport terminal. The architectural design reflects its location in the Ozark Mountains with an organization based on references to the area’s geological limestone strata, forested areas, and recreational lakes and rivers.

These natural references serve as metaphors to inform the interior design of public spaces into geological, landscape, and water zones. Each building volume is a loft space that can be individually expanded. Common use ticketing, fixed loading bridges, and a single-level passenger experience make this building extremely easy to use and adaptable to future change.

Tissue Processing Clean Rooms

This project is a production laboratory fit-out of an existing shell space into three class 100 processing modules and support for human tissue processing.

The renovation of existing space is designed to meet FDA Guidelines using NIH design criteria. The project includes clean rooms ranging from class 100,000 (ISO Class 8) to class 100 (ISO Class 5) for the processing of hard and soft human tissue for use in surgical transplants. This was designed as Class C Laboratory Facility due to acetone storage and distribution system of shell space. The facility includes processing modules, sample accession, clean/soiled protocol glass wash and sterilization areas, pre-process and post-process corridor protocols, gown and scrub facilities.

Centaur Cryogenic Tanking Facility

RS&H provided final design, environmental permit applications, and construction services for a secure complex for off-pad cryogenic tanking/detanking and hypergol loading of the Titan IV/Centaur Upper Stage.The design included:

Cryogenic Tanking Cell:  A hazardous high bay building for assembly, checkout, cryogenic fuel and oxidizer loading and unloading, and hypergol loading. The cell also includes emergency exhaust systems, moveable access platforms, vehicles handling equipment, hypergol spill washdown/collection system, GN2 distribution, purge systems, and explosion attenuation.

Cryogenic Tanking Cell Support Building:  An adjacent single-story building used to support Cryogenic Tanking Cell operations. The building contains a 1,300-square-foot avionics/electrical AGE area, mechanical Aerospace Ground Equipment area, communications area, and test/maintenance areas.
