RFE has grown quickly by providing a high-quality product combined with a strong emphasis on responsiveness, effective communication, and understanding our client’s needs. RFE’s focus is providing quality services at a competitive price with the goal of creating long-term relationships/partnerships. This is accomplished by focusing on the client’s project goals, clear communication throughout the project, and including the client in the decision making. We believe that a strong relationship encourages collaboration, drives efficiency, and creates better outcomes. RFE also prides itself on its ability to recognize and respond to changing customer needs, while keeping the project within budget and on schedule.

RFE collaborates with local architects, landscape architects, surveyors, structural, mechanical, electrical, and instrument & control engineers, transportation experts, and other professionals in order to provide our clients with the complete team for any project.
