Why RCI?


Our professional staff includes civil engineers, biologists, geologists, environmental managers, range management specialists, planners, and surveyors.


Resource Concepts, Inc. (RCI) has operated since 1978 providing dependable and cost effective services in Nevada, California and other western states.


From initial planning through completion, a hallmark of RCI services are professional projects delivered in a cost effective and timely manner.


RCI has an experienced and interdisciplinary staff.  We are small enough to provide direct participation by senior level staff and large enough to support workloads for multiple projects.


RCI not only builds projects….

We build long term relationships by working in partnership with our clients to assist them in achieving their goals. We take pride in their success, our community and the work we accomplish.


RCI is a Small Business and we welcome teaming opportunities with large and small firms.
