We have also recently added construction engineering and inspections/administration (CEI services), as well as structural services within our range of capabilities, as part of our vision to provide comprehensive services for our clients. As stewards of the land, the professionals at RDA have a mission to ensure that our clients’ ideas, concepts and plans can be realized in harmony with federal, state and local regulations, while meeting the long-range planning and environmental goals of the communities in which we work.
Founded in 1982, RDA has provided planning and design services for a countless number of projects throughout Virginia. Today, RDA’s staff consists of highly-experienced engineers, surveyors, planners, environmental scientists and support technicians. Among our employees are 26 Licensed Professional Engineers and three licensed Professional Traffic Operations Engineers, who are assisted by another 35 transportation, environmental, and civil engineers; 11 Right-of-Way agents (including five Licensed Appraisers); three Licensed Land Surveyors and seven (two-man) field survey crews. Three of RDA’s engineers are “LEED” accredited (two LEED AP/BD + C and one LEED GA) and have experience designing site plans (and associated buildings) that have achieved LEED certifications; and four of our Professional Engineers are accredited through the Design-Build Institute of America (DBIA).
In terms of our work distribution, 85% of our business is in the public and quasi-public sector arena and approximately 15% in the high-end commercial, retail, residential and industrial private sector development arenas. Additionally, RDA provides expert consulting and testimony, most often on behalf of the Virginia Department of Transportation and local jurisdictions.
For any of our service areas, RDA focuses on preparing high quality, functional and ecologically-sound plans and documents which are accurate and have built-in value to our clients. RDA goes to extreme lengths to ensure that all aspects of site development and infrastructure costs have been properly assessed and evaluated and that the designs themselves are the most economical, while achieving the client’s goals. To many of our clients, the most important qualification is our commitment to service. RDA prides itself on our ability to build strong relationships with our clients and to see each and every project to successful completion. Superior service and design is what we strive for on each and every endeavor. This is why over 75% of our on-going work is with repeat clientele.
