Architectural Services

Collaborate. Design. Construct.

Since our inception more than 65 years ago, Rice has developed a culture of creative designs and innovative construction methods through collaboration. Our award-winning, in-house architectural group includes licensed architects, CAD designers and engineers. By offering these services in-house, we are able to work closely with our clients and their team, from the initial design concepts through completion and beyond. This single source of responsibility ensures an entire team devoted to your project, focusing on all aspects of design and construction through daily collaboration with architects, designers and project managers.

Although our experience in design speaks for itself, we don’t rest on experience alone. We also use cutting-edge technology to visualize and construct your project using 3D design tools such as Revit, Sketchup and others. As an integral part of design, these tools allows us the capability to model the entire project, both interior and exterior, before any construction happens. Highly detailed 2D and 3D visual aides give a accurate representation to client teams, municipalities and other stakeholders.

Our design services include:

  • Programming and master planning
  • Site analysis and selection assistance
  • BIM Modeling, 3D renderings
  • Design consultant coordination
  • Municipal approval assistance and representation
  • Building code evaluation (IBC, OSHA, USDA, ADA, etc)
