Our Story

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.

Whether we are designing a new dam, rehabilitating an existing dam, or inspecting a levee system, we leverage this specialized experience to guide our clients through the design and regulatory processes needed to deliver exceptional results.


As a company, we believe in connecting with our local community, supporting good causes, and having fun together. Our approach to charitable giving and community involvement is simple: we support organizations where our employees already devote their time and energy.
