RHSI principal partners met in 2003 while filling Program and Construction Management staff augmentation positions for the City of Corpus Christi managing capital improvement programs and bond initiatives. Together they quickly realized the positive impact they had providing comprehensive services for this municipality and saw an opportunity to provide the same services to other clients and agencies. RHSI President Jerry Shoemaker P.E. and Vice President Kent Power P.E. expanded the firm in 2006 with the following goal in mind: Support clients in all phases of project delivery from initial project needs assessment through design, construction, and warranty.
