BHC RHODES Opens Austin Office


Overland Park, Kansas based BHC RHODES, a civil engineering and surveying firm, opens an office in south central Austin where they have been working for several months for a major fiber to the home provider. BHC RHODES worked with CBRE on the office deal located at 1524 S. IH-35. The office houses both field and office staff.

The company’s exposure to the Austin community while providing telecom services, revealed a need for additional civil engineering resources. This led the company to expand their service offerings in the market beyond their nationally recognized telecommunication team, and include civil engineering design for commercial development customers.

It is this expertise, along with a deep understanding of storm water and run-off management, traffic engineering and sustainability that the firm brings to Austin.  “Austin is a thriving community and we know we can offer more than traditional civil engineering most customers are accustomed to receiving. Our services are packaged with a “no problem” attitude that has proven to differentiate us,” said Executive Vice President and Director of Utilities Services, Bill Brungardt, P.E..

The firm’s commercial development design services are offered to customers in manufacturing, institutions, retail, destination, entertainment and capital improvement projects. BHC RHODES also offers civil engineering services to public works customers and they have award winning in-house surveying teams offering state of the art 3D scanning.
