Unparalleled Design and Management


ERO is a collaborative organization. Our best projects and most successful relationships are the results of using a high degree of listening and collaboration with effective project management and planning. Our holistic approach partners us with owners, consultants, and contractors during every stage of a project. We value listening and collaborating to earn community trust, manage project resources prudently and build one-of-a-kind projects. Frequent communications entail meetings and on-site visits that allow a hands-on approach to ensure proper resolution of any issues.

Problem Solving

ERO begins problem-solving with problem-seeking. Identifying challenges and risks as early as possible affords us the opportunity to find optimal solutions. Our forte is innovating solutions to successfully transform complex challenges, processes, and ideas into instructive and communal architectural designs delivered on-time and on-budget.

Cultural Connection

ERO creatively weaves a community's unique history, culture, and land into the fabric of the building design—inspiring those interacting with the building. We embed design metaphors to demonstrate our respect and engender a sense of community ownership.

100% Hispanic-Owned and Minority Certified

ERO is a HUB-, DBE- and MBE-certified 100% Hispanic-owned firm. We created our firm knowing we have a unique perspective to share with the public which results in projects that enrich user experiences or educational outcomes.

Future Focused

ERO has proven the transformational power of future focused designs through our extensive body of work. The designs address the user through neuroscience and sensory frameworks. Future focused architecture engages and inspires occupants and visitors using light, color, connectivity, flexibility, and choice. These spatial frameworks engender communication, collaboration, digital connectivity, critical thinking, global competence, and problem-solving. Our stunning future focused schools are learnable, teachable and communal facilities.

User Experience

When ERO completes a project, our clients feel that they were part of the process, their ideas were heard and made a difference and their budget was respected. Principal, Bertie Simmons, characterized ERO's Furr High School replacement project as a "family project." James Rodriguez, UTRGV, stated that he finds us dependable, reliable, efficient, truthful and collaborative.

  • Dr. Bertie Simmons

    Principal, E.L. Furr High School
    Houston ISD

    This is the most amazing and beautiful school in this community and we owe it to Mr. Ochoa. We have the most wonderful architects who worked with the parents and students. The east end deserves this and we are so grateful for it.

  • Benito Amador

    Board of Trustees
    Seguin ISD

    The new high school will be a source of Matador pride in our community, and it will be one of the many jewels in the Seguin area to attract new families, businesses and growth. This project wouldn't have been possible without the team effort.

    ERO Architects understands structural and construction concerns better than most other firms, while still exhibiting excellent design sensibilities.

  • Marisela Zepeda

    Pharr-San Juan-Alamo ISD

    After spending two years in portables at Audie Murphy Middle School, it is a good feeling to have a campus (Thomas Jefferson Early College High School) where the students are in charge of their own learning. We are in awe over the science labs, technology resources, cafetorium and landscaping. It feels like a college campus."

  • Cesar Garza

    Facilities Administrator
    Brownsville ISD

    Our board of trustees and patrons of the arts were delighted with the design of the Hannah High School Performing Arts Center. The quality and superior work completed by ERO Architects exceeded our expectations. It was a pleasure working with ERO.

  • Daniel W. Bankhead, AIA

    General Manager of Facilities Design
    Houston ISD

    It is noteworthy how responsive ERO Architects was to Houston ISD and how innovative their solutions were to the challenges set before them, specifically when the construction delivery method changed for our new Furr High School. They assisted in saving the school district over $13 million.

  • Dr. Shirley Reed, M.B.A., Ed.D

    South Texas College

    ERO Architects is a very creative design firm, providing the us with innovative solutions to complex programming and budget issues. ERO assembled a very competent team of professionals and the communications among the partners has been flawless and ultimately contributes to the success of the project. The dynamic team always focuses on the task at hand resulting in cost controls to stay within a tight budget, on schedule and delivered with exceptional quality. I am particularly pleased with how well ERO has interfaced with the construction manager during the preconstruction services phase.

    ERO accepted every challenge set before it, including ensuring the building is a culturally relevant and desirable space for our students.
