Beginning with a staff of two in 2006, RVi’s Houston office has been steadily growing throughout the past few years. The addition of three new employees this year has prompted a step that we’ve all been waiting for – the expansion of the Houston office! Construction began this month, and once completed will provide workspace for all 7 employees with room to grow in the future.

As the Founding Principal of the Houston office, Chris Patterson has witnessed the changes firsthand. “The Houston market is really heating up, and we are excited that our team is growing to meet the demand. I’m looking forward to building upon the successes we’ve had in the past few years,” Chris said.

At the beginning of this year, RVi welcomed Casey Collins, PLA as a Project Manager in the Houston office. Casey is a licensed landscape architect and holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Landscape Architecture from Purdue University.

Also joining RVi in the past few months were Designers Robert Whittemore and Brad Sweitzer. Previously a student intern with the firm, Robert Whittemore holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Landscape Architecture from the University of Arkansas. Brad Sweitzer recently graduated from Texas A&M University with a B.A. in Landscape Architecture and a minor in Urban Planning, and is a LEED Green Associate.
