The Rhodes Group Celebrates a Milestone
A letter from company founder and president, Andrew B. Rhodes
In February of this year, we marked the 20th anniversary of the firm’s incorporation. Looking back, I am amazed at how far we have come as a firm, and all that we have accomplished. Our growth and success has far exceeded my expectations.
20 years ago, we were just two consultants with a goal of providing outstanding consulting and expert services to local contractors and owners. Today with more than 40 consultants and staff at our headquarters in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania and office in Houston, Texas, we are engaged to consult on some of the largest and most complex construction projects throughout the United States and across the globe. We have grown our service offerings to include CPM Scheduling, Project Alignment Services, and 3D modeling in addition to our robust Construction Claims Consulting and Expert Testimony services.
The Rhodes Group is fortunate to be celebrating its 20th anniversary because of the extraordinary people that have been a part of the company along the way – people who were willing to persevere and share a similar passion for providing outstanding services. As important as the talented individuals that make up our team is the team-oriented culture that we have built. Our team’s “collective grit” is at the heart of our strong reputation in the industry and has fueled the growth of the firm.
What our collaborative environment means for our clients is the assurance that no matter which of our experts and consultants they work with, they can expect consistent, high-quality work product and credible analysis.
To our clients who gave us our “big break” 20 years ago and all those who have engaged us since, we thank you for placing your trust in us. It goes without saying that without you, The Rhodes Group would not be what it is today. We are honored to have such a strong base of repeat clients and raving fans willing to refer us to new clients.
We enter our 21st year with the same commitment to quality that has been the hallmark of The Rhodes Group these past 20 years. We are equally as committed to the development and growth of our professionals so that they may see The Rhodes Group through the next 20 years and beyond.
While our projects have taken us around the world, we also remain committed to the Pittsburgh region as our home and headquarters where our story began.
Before I sign off, I would be remiss if I did not also thank my wife, my family, my friends, and my colleagues for their unwavering support.
With appreciation and gratitude,
