Our integrated approach to sustainability focuses on resources, efficiency, community engagement, and business success, delivering sustainable solutions that advance our clients’ social, economic, and environmental goals.

We utilize the most current water resource management technology, including hydrologic, hydraulic, hydrodynamic, and water-quality computer modeling. Our models play a crucial role in tackling future challenges and are vital steps for addressing future concerns and integrating plans and designs with existing surface water systems. By applying these tools, we drive cost savings, improve system efficiency, and streamline the permitting process.

RS&H is ready to partner with you to help achieve your goals.

Water Resources Projects

Projects at Colorado Springs Airport included runway rehabilitations, apron rehabilitation, taxiway reconstructions, landside improvements, planning studies, and owner representation.


RS&H partnered with FDOT on the A1A project which included replacing five bridges in Jacksonville Beach and Neptune Beach in addition to widening/improving the outfall channel serving these communities.


These rest areas involve new construction of buildings, outbuildings, picnic pavilions, and concrete pavement to provide increased vehicular and heavy truck parking capacities.


The airport tasked the RS&H-led design team to develop a plan that provided flexibility for simultaneous deicing of five Group V (Airbus A350) or ten Group III (Boeing 737) aircraft, maximizing the airport’s operational capacity during winter months.


RS&H is providing design services for the I-70 West Vail Pass Auxiliary Lanes project, which is being completed through the construction manager/general contractor (CM/GC) delivery method.

July 8, 2024By Rob Grotefend, GISP

The first place to look for airfield pavement areas requiring improvement is an airport’s Pavement Management Program, also commonly referred to as an Airport Pavement Management System. A PMP or APMS provides details about pavement areas requiring maintenance, rehabilitation, or reconstruction.
