Ben D. Foster, Architect

Ben and Personal Item


From building tree forts in the woods of Michigan with friends, to insisting on driving through (rather than around) cities to see their skylines and downtowns, Ben knew from an early age that he wanted to be an architect. After receiving his Master of Architecture from the University of Michigan in 2009, Ben honed his talents designing new, contemporary projects that connect the user to the place. Ben's creativity and friendly personality help him form excellent client relationships that link their goals to the final design. With nine years of professional experience, Ben is a vital addition to the RTA team.

Jheanelle joined RTA in 2016 after completing multiple education programs in Jamaica and receiving her Masters of Architecture from Florida International University. She is motivated by community based projects, where architecture acts as an engine for change. Jheanelle enjoys knowing she makes a difference with her work, both socially and economically. When she begins a new project, Jheanelle asks herself who the building is serving and how the architecture can invest in the dignities of the community that it will serve. Jheanelle’s work ethic, unique perspective, and drive to help others makes RTA and the communities we serve a better place.
