What's Trending in TX: Construction, Land Development, and Engineering

Construction Trends in Texas

Population Growth

Texas is experiencing rapid population growth, with cities like Austin, Fort Worth, and San Antonio leading the way. In 2023, Texas took four of the top spots among the nation's most populous cities, with Austin joining Houston, San Antonio, and Dallas in the top 10[1]. This growth is driven by both migration and natural increase, with the majority of population changes coming from migration both from within and outside the state[2].

Population Distribution

The Texas Triangle, composed of the Dallas-Fort Worth, Houston, San Antonio, and Austin metro areas, now holds a whopping 68% of the state's 30.3 million residents[2]. The population growth is concentrated in suburban areas of Houston, San Antonio, Austin, Dallas, and Ft. Worth[4].

Land Development and Site Improvements

Population Growth and Infrastructure

With the state's population growth, there is a need for infrastructure expansion. Texas has seen a significant increase in population from 2010 to 2020, with eight counties by numeric change and six counties by percent change in population[4]. This growth has led to the need for new residential development projects and improvements to existing infrastructure.

Civil Engineering Projects and Proposals

WBE/WOSB/HUB Certification

JRH Engineering is not only a leader in civil engineering services but also a certified Woman Business Enterprise (WBE), Historically Underutilized Business (HUB), and Woman Owned Small Business (WOSB)[6]. These certifications reflect our firm's commitment to diversity and inclusion in the engineering industry.

Structural Engineering Projects and Proposals

Sustainable Design and Construction

JRH Engineering is committed to providing superior engineering services, including structural engineering. We understand the importance of sustainable design and construction to meet the needs of a growing population while minimizing environmental impact in land development[6].

Energy-Related Matters

Energy Conservation and Efficiency

Texas is a leader in energy production, but it also faces challenges in managing its power grid. ERCOT, the Texas power grid manager, has issued appeals for voluntary energy conservation due to tight grid conditions caused by freezing temperatures[5]. JRH Engineering is dedicated to helping clients navigate these challenges and find energy-efficient solutions.

In conclusion, Texas is experiencing significant growth in population and infrastructure needs, which presents both challenges and opportunities for civil, structural, and environmental engineering services. JRH Engineering is well-positioned to provide these services, with a commitment to diversity, sustainability, and client satisfaction.
