Two Firms Unite: RHA Architects joins BRR Architecture

Today we are pleased to announce RHA Architects, based in Dallas, Texas, will be joining BRR Architecture. This partnership creates a twelfth office location for BRR and adds more than 15 talented teammates to the BRR staff.

Operational since 1983, RHA has extensive experience supporting national retail, regional grocery and restaurant clients, and its team brings with it a wealth of knowledge to share.

We’ve actually known RHA and its team for several decades. Previously known as Raymond Harris & Associates, both our firms have strong roots collaborating with Walmart, Sam’s Club and other national retailers. In fact, the founder of RHA, Raymond Harris, taught me (James) how to survey and accurately document prospective sites for my clients.

We are excited to introduce the RHA team to our workplace culture and we believe it will be beneficial for both our clients and our people. Having a Dallas-based team expands our reach into Texas, increases the number of registered architects we have on staff and lends additional experienced talent to support large-scale, national programs. We look forward to sharing with them how we work, the ‘Sundown Rule’ and our unique design process. In return, we look forward to gaining their insights and knowledge based on years of supporting national retailers.

We’d like to take the time to welcome two additional principals and two associates to the BRR leadership team as part of this announcement. Ty Holcomb, former president & CEO of RHA, and Patrick Burke, former Vice President and COO, will become principals and will manage the Dallas office. Additionally, Jim Sims and Maurice Musy join the BRR’s associates’ group. (Pictured above, left to right) We welcome the new perspective and fresh ideas they bring to our team.

Maintaining strong client relationships and producing quality work is still at the heart of what we do, and we are working hard to create a seamless transition for RHA and its clients into the BRR culture. It will be a few months before this transition is completed, yet we believe uniting both firms will only create stronger outcomes for our clients.
