Schrickel, Rollins and Associates, Inc. (SRA) was established in 1955, combining the practices of landscape architecture, civil engineering and land planning. Our founders were committed to developing strong, long-term relationships with their clients and becoming not only problem solvers but trusted advisors. Over the years, we have expanded our services and now offer architectural design, and 3D visualization/graphic design.
Coming out of a recession of the 80’s, the 1990’s provided an economic “breath of fresh air.” The economy grew rapidly. We experienced low unemployment and interest rates. For the most part, we were able to recover and feel a little more comfortable. SRA continued to be instrumental in park design throughout the region. By the end of the 1990’s, we had completed more than 100 miles of trails and pathway projects, numerous community parks and athletic complexes. We had also master planned high profile projects like Lake Alan Henry in Lubbock, Texas.
By the end of the 90’s, SRA had also completed more than $163,450,000 Texas Department of Transportation Projects. This includes the I-35/I-30 Interchange in Fort Worth, Texas.
We ended the decade with the fear of Y2K and thankfully, we did not have to eat any of the stored spam and jam we had in our shelters.
Conversation with Mr. Rollins on one of his most memorable projects of the office:
Al Rollins: “One of the best things we’ve done the Rush Creek Sewer job. See, people don’t realize that. That project opened up the last undeveloped drainage area between Dallas and Fort Worth. It opened up about 20,000 acres that is now 100 percent developed. Before, development was stalled because they were unable to get sewage service. That was an impactful project for many reasons.”
