Rbhu Gives Back


At Rbhu, we believe that art plays a key role in lifting the human spirit; it ignites our imagination with possibilities, helps us process and express our feelings, and brings people together for a collective cause. We believe that monumental sculptures have the power to inspire creativity and can positively impact the health and well-being of those around them.

Engineering large-scale art sculptures is our mission, and we are fortunate to play a part in bringing life transformative experiences to the world. We exist because of our community and its vision, so we feel the need to do our part to support them. We are honored to announce that we are launching the 2022 Rbhu Gives Back grants, offering $12,000 worth of free engineering services to artists in need.

What we are offering: Structural or mechanical engineering services for any size artwork, which can include analysis, construction drawings, and permit documents, depending on the project needs. Offerings will be broken down as follows:

  • One full pro-bono project (up to $6,000 in free services)

  • One project with 50% discounted services (up to $3,000 in free services)

  • One project with 50% discounted services (up to $3,000 in free services)

What we’re looking for:

Any art piece that needs engineering services is eligible for this program. We want to get a good idea of your concept so that we understand how we can best help you. Please answer the questions as best as you can. If we need additional information, we will reach out and ask you.

What you need to provide:

  1. A completed application

  2. Visual representation of your concept – this can be anything from a napkin sketch to a 3D model. If you don’t have your idea fully flushed out yet, that’s OK, just let us know in your application

Important dates:

  • October 31st: Applications close

  • December 16th : Selected projects are chosen, and applicants are notified

Other important information:

  • We are licensed in several states in the U.S. and always looking for a reason to expand that list, even to outside the country, so don’t let location stop you from applying

  • If you’d like for your project to be confidential, please state so on your application. We will respect confidentiality if requested. If an NDA is needed, please email us at rhugivesback@rbhu.org with the NDA attached

  • We will never share your personal information

  • If you have any questions, please email us at rbhugivesback@rbhu.org

Rbhu is a small engineering company that is driven by creativity and positive impact. Please help us spread the word about this opportunity so we can get in touch with any artists who can benefit from this opportunity.
