- 10 Acres
BHB is providing civil and electrical engineering and landscape design services for phase two of Chisholm Trail Community Park. Our team is working with the City of Fort Worth and O’Flinn Design Group to install park amenities on 10 acres of undeveloped land. The community park will include a new parking area, sidewalk, hike and bike trails, a picnic shelter, skate park, soccer fields, and a playground with separate elements for 2-5 and 5-12-year-olds.
Civil engineering services include the addition of drainage lines around the playground and a water line connection for surrounding water fountains. Electrical engineers designed skate park lighting with the consideration of glare to nearby neighborhoods while providing safe illumination levels to meet IES standards and recommendations. To achieve this, light poles were placed in positions that provided multiple angles of light on skaters and park features to eliminate shadows.
A unique landscape design includes a curb-less parking lot that will allow water and chemical runoff to flow directly into the landscape. Grass and roots will then help cleanse the water before making its way into the adjacent lake. This method eliminates the need for a curb and gutter, making it more environmentally conscious and overall cost-saving.
Currently in planning phases, phase two is estimated to be completed in Spring of 2022.

Associate | Senior Landscape Architect
As a Landscape Architect, Tom Kellogg has experience working in a project management position for both multi-disciplinary firms and landscape architecture design firms. His project history includes a wide variety of types, including parks and recreation, commercial landscape design, streetscapes, multi-family developments, and multimodal recreation trails.
Living only a mile away from our Grapevine office, Tom discovered BHB while he was riding his bike and instantly wished he could work here. As it turned out, BHB was looking for a landscape architect at the time, and the rest is history.
Outside of work Tom enjoys bicycling, something he’s loved doing since he was a kid. Tom also enjoys camping, traveling, visiting museums, and playing video games with his teenage son, Colin.

Paul Morris, PE
Associate | Electrical Engineer
In the early years of his life, Paul went through several intense experiences at the hands of nature: a severe thunderstorm in his hometown, a significant blizzard while in Virginia in second grade, an EF-4 tornado direct hit to his college dormitory, and a large typhoon while in South Korea where his family lived for eight years. These close calls led to an interest in meteorology—that is, until his Sunday school teacher shared with him about his career as an engineer. As he learned more about the profession, he felt it would be a good fit (he’s always enjoyed math and building things), and the rest is history.
Paul began working at BHB in 2013 as a graduate electrical engineer and works on many of the firm’s municipal, commercial, multifamily, and hospitality projects. He is part of the core team here at BHB working to implement data-driven power systems such as Power over Ethernet (PoE) and other technologies such as fault-managed power systems and DC power system integration.
Outside of work, Paul was recently married and enjoys spending time with his wife being active in their church and exploring cooking, making ice cream and participating in all sorts of adventures. Paul also enjoys playing outdoor sports or indoor board/card games with friends, drinking coffee, watching movies, and reading books. When given the chance, he loves escaping to Colorado to enjoy the peace and tranquility of the mountains and beautiful scenery. Paul recently got to hike a “14er” (fourteen thousand foot mountain peak) in Colorado with his wife and family which was one of the most challenging physical undertakings he has been through.
