Updated: Feb 1


JRH Engineering: Aiding South TX Property Owners Amidst Storms

Extreme weather events such as hurricanes, tornadoes, windstorms, and torrential rains have become a recurring challenge for property owners in South Tx[1][3][4][5][6][7][9]. These events can cause significant damage to properties, leading to costly repairs and even displacement. At JRH Engineering & Environmental Services, Inc., we understand the unique challenges that extreme weather can pose, and we're here to help.


Windstorm Engineering Design


Mitigating Wind Damage

Windstorms can cause significant damage to properties, especially when wind speeds exceed 60 MPH[4]. Our windstorm engineering design services can help mitigate this damage. We adhere to the Texas Department of Insurance's building code for windstorm resistant construction[8], ensuring that your property is designed to withstand high wind speeds.


Structural Integrity

Our team of experts will assess your property's structural integrity and make necessary modifications to ensure it can withstand high wind speeds. This includes securing loose shingles, checking the metal flashing around openings or on roof valleys for leaks, and reinforcing vulnerable areas such as garage doors[2].


Retention/Detention Pond Design for Flood Mitigation


Managing Heavy Rainfall

Southern Texas frequently experiences heavy rainfall, leading to flooding and significant property damage[1][5]. Our retention/detention pond design services can help manage this rainfall, reducing the risk of flooding.


Effective Drainage Systems

We design effective drainage systems that can handle large volumes of water, directing it away from your property and into designated retention or detention ponds. This helps to prevent water from pooling around your property, reducing the risk of flood damage.


Site Drainage Design for Storms in South Tx


Preventing Water Damage

Proper site drainage is crucial in preventing water damage during heavy rainfall events. Our team can design a comprehensive site drainage system for your property, ensuring that water is effectively directed away from your property and towards designated drainage areas.


Customized Solutions

We understand that every property is unique, and we provide customized solutions based on your property's specific needs and characteristics. This includes assessing the slope of your land, soil type, and existing drainage systems.


General Civil and Structural Engineering Design Services


Building Resilient Structures

Our general civil and structural engineering design services can help ensure that your property is resilient against extreme weather events. We can design and construct structures that are resistant to wind, rain, and other weather-related forces, helping to minimize damage and ensure the safety of occupants.


Adherence to Building Codes

We adhere to all relevant building codes and regulations, ensuring that your property is not only resilient but also compliant with local and state requirements[8].


## Environmental Engineering Design Services


Protecting the Environment

Our environmental engineering design services can help protect the environment while also mitigating the effects of extreme weather events. This includes designing systems for managing stormwater runoff, reducing erosion, and protecting local ecosystems.


Sustainable Practices

We believe in sustainable practices and aim to minimize the environmental impact of our designs. This includes using environmentally friendly materials and techniques wherever possible.
