Company Description
Our story began in 2005 when RJH’s founders set out to create a design firm with a core mission: to provide our clients with dam and levee engineering expertise typically associated with a large firm, but with a philosophy of client service more commonly associated with a small firm. Since then, we have continued that mission and have become a leader in delivering premier dam and levee projects. Today, RJH has grown to over 35 employees and has successfully delivered hundreds of projects throughout the United States.

Dam and levee engineering is the core practice of our firm, not just a subset of other service lines. In fact, dam and levee projects comprise over 90 percent of our work. We don’t just work on a handful of these projects a year – we do it every day.
