Charles Raths, S.E. founded RRJ in 1966 with the vision of building a practice based upon quality engineering with particular focus on adhering to engineering fundamentals, attention to detail, and client service. This ideal proved successful in earning RRJ a reputation as problem solvers and positioning the firm as one of the early forensic engineering practices in the country. 
Today, RRJ's experts consult on high-profile projects ranging from major healthcare facilities and stadiums to high-rise residential towers and aviation structures. President Kurt Hoigard, P.E., SECB, F.ASTM credits RRJ's continued success to a focus on relationships, innovation, and client service, stating, "We are grateful to our Founding Principals, staff, and clients who helped us reach this milestone. These relationships have been the foundation of our practice, opening the door to developing collaborative solutions to increasingly challenging problems." 
Looking ahead, the commitment to Raths' original principles, continued expansion of service offerings, and dedication to professional development have set the stage for another 50 years of excellence.
