The Jacksonville Business Journal recently featured RS&H CEO Brian Reed in an article on how architectural services are evolving. Reed discussed the need for finding experienced architects, a major challenge facing the industry today. He also pointed to the emerging trend of design-build, where contractors and architects team together to provide one single source of cost and responsibility.
Reed highlighted several of the firm’s marquee projects, including the Winston Family YMCA on the river in downtown Jacksonville, Florida, as well as FedEx’s 580,000-square-foot package distribution center in Ocala, Florida. Other high profile projects include the hardening and upgrade for NASA’s Vehicle Assembly Building at Kennedy Space Center and the design of Nanotherapeautics 160,000-square-foot Advanced Development and Manufacturing Center in Gainesville, Florida, which will produce medical countermeasures to radiological, chemical, nuclear, and biological threats to the military.
