Rundell Ernstberger Associates was co-founded in 1983 by partners Deane Rundell and Eric Ernstberger after three years together at Rundell Associates, a Muncie, Indiana firm established by Deane in 1979. The firm was founded to provide land planning, urban design, and landscape architecture services. In 1999, Michael Sommer and Kevin Osburn became partners in the firm and in 2008, Carl Kincaid was named as a partner. The present staff of eighteen includes six registered landscape architects and ten graduate landscape architects in three offices in Indianapolis and Muncie, Indiana, and Louisville, Kentucky.
Since its formation, Rundell Ernstberger Associates has participated as prime consultants to municipalities, governmental agencies, non-profit organizations, private institutions, and universities in more than twenty states. Its growth and success can be attributed to the fact that the partners share a common vision of excellence in all forms of development and design.
Rundell Ernstberger Associates is widely recognized for creative approaches to master planning and site design and its ability to organize and manage multi-disciplinary design teams. The staff is a uniquely talented group of individuals whose combined design and technical expertise results in the delivery of thorough and complete design packages to clients through all phases of work.
Recognized by its peers in the Landscape Architectural profession as the leading site design firm in the Midwest, Rundell Ernstberger Associates has received more than 50 local, national and international design awards in the past 33 years.
