Natick, MA (December 12, 2022) – ZRHD, an engineering consulting firm based in Oklahoma City with high-end expertise in the design of mechanical and electrical systems for federal, commercial, institutional, and industrial clients nationwide, will join Larson Design Group (LDG), a leading national architecture, engineering, and professional consulting firm. 

With over 1,000 assignments in the United States and abroad, ZRHD has a strong resume in the federal, education and commercial markets by designing a variety of project types including office buildings, hangars, laboratories, and training and research facilities and building expertise in energy performance projects. 

“Our strategic partnership with ZRHD strengthens LDG by continuing to grow our building engineering expertise in our current markets and complements our federal team as we continue to expand nationally to multiple agencies,” said David Martin, PE, President and CEO of LDG. “We welcome ZRHD to our growing team and look forward to working together for the success of our clients.” 

Originally known as Zumwalt-Ragsdale, Inc. in 1986, and then merging with another respected Oklahoma City company, Herring and Danner, Inc., in 1992, ZRHD has grown to be an industry leader known for solving difficult design issues associated with retrofit and renovation projects with an emphasis on building energy performance.

“We’re proud of the strong reputation our ZRHD team has built together with so many meaningful institutions over our 36 years in business to produce best in class engineering projects,” said Randall Carter, President of ZRHD. “We’re thrilled to be joining Larson Design Group, as it’s a company that recognizes our team’s value and how we can make a great impact to further grow its business in the federal space.”
