Driven by Values

Rice & Gardner Consultants

When Rice & Gardner Consultants Inc. was founded in 2005, it was an opportunity to merge two complementary services: program management and MEP engineering. However, more importantly, the company’s inception was based on a vision: to truly serve their clients and the communities in which they worked, both in the Houston area and throughout the state of Texas. They wanted their business efforts to also be an influence for positive change. This common value can be seen through both business and personal ventures undertaken by the firm, with President, Jim Rice, leading the way.

Ventilation Innovation

American Aldes

As many of us know, well-sealed and insulated buildings ensure greater control of heating and air-conditioning systems, offering efficiency while controlling costs. Yet while efficient, these spaces have a propensity to trap odors, chemicals and humidity in the home which contributes to poor indoor air quality if not properly ventilated.
