Troy Rich


Troy Rich, the man behind DevCol Group, Inc., is not your average executive. His journey to becoming the CEO and founder of this renowned design development company is a remarkable tale of passion, dedication, and an unwavering commitment to excellence.


As a young man fresh out of college, Troy embarked on a unique path. While studying for his architecture exam, he selflessly served as a firefighter. It was during these tumultuous days that his love for construction and architecture began to take shape. Driven by an insatiable passion for building, Troy started working on construction projects on the side.


Troy's dedication did not go unnoticed, and it wasn't long before he secured a groundbreaking deal with some Burger King franchises. This opportunity proved to be the catalyst for his career. With sheer determination and relentless effort, Troy decided to leave the fire department behind and focus wholeheartedly on DevCol Group, Inc.


At the core of Troy's philosophy is the belief that construction should never be separated from design. He views buildings as a form of art, and his commitment to merging artistry with construction is unwavering. His vision is not just about erecting structures, but ensuring that clients truly enjoy the entire building and design process. Central to his approach is fostering good communication and providing exceptional service. These principles have been instrumental in catapulting DevCol Group, Inc. to new heights. Today, the company boasts an impressive portfolio, having completed projects for Fortune 500 builders, and Troy's name has become synonymous with architectural excellence.


Troy's credentials speak volumes about his dedication to his craft. He holds a Bachelor of Science degree from Prairie View A&M, a Master of Architecture degree from the same institution, and a Master of Business degree from Oklahoma Christian University. He's also a member of prestigious organizations like NCARB, NOMA, and the U.S. Green Building Council. His commitment to continuous learning and growth is evident in his impressive educational journey.


DevCol Group, Inc. is not just another architecture firm; it's a visionary company that Troy has nurtured with care. Based in Dallas, Texas, with a remote office in Oklahoma City, the company has rapidly risen to become one of the fastest-growing registered architecture firms in Texas since its inception in 2012.

DevCol Group's mission from day one has been to incorporate sustainability into everyday development, with architecture at the forefront of their approach. Their client list is a testament to their success, boasting names like Burger King, Arby's, Krispy Kreme, Dairy Queen, T-Mobile, Marriott Hotels, Wendy's, Taco Bueno, and many others. With an annual revenue exceeding $2 million, DevCol Group's diversified portfolio includes residential communities, commercial construction, and custom homes.

In 2023, the company reached a significant milestone by investing in and rehabilitating over 100 homes. Their global footprint is expanding as well, with a current project in Rwanda, Africa, where they are collaborating with investors to develop a vibrant community. Back in Dallas, Texas, they are working on something revolutionary—a tech-driven luxury community of 15 homes. This community will feature centralized Wi-Fi, charging stations for electric cars, and solar panels, making it not only environmentally friendly, but also self-sustainable in terms of energy consumption.


At DevCol Group, Inc., every project is an embodiment of tradition and innovation. They seamlessly blend time-tested traditions with cutting-edge innovations to create unique, functional, and artistically captivating structures. Troy Rich firmly believes that the client is the soul of the project, and this client-centric approach has been the cornerstone of their success.


We spoke with Troy to learn more about their unique approach to architecture and delve into some of their most significant projects.


Troy, what makes DevCol Group unique?


DevCol Group stands out through turnkey service, which eliminates the need for middlemen and third-party consultants. We handle everything in-house, which enables us to complete remodels in just 30 days. Furthermore, we provide both design and construction. While many competitors specialize in one area, we excel in both. This integrated approach allows us to deliver faster projects without compromising on quality. Another benefit that cannot be overstated is our established relationships with city council members.


Do you have a particularly favorite development that DevCol Group is working on?


We are collaborating with Rwanda to develop a residential community and bring employment opportunities to the area. Rwanda is preparing to house the largest international hub for traveler destinations in the Middle East and neighboring countries. In response, we aim to develop a housing subdivision that includes a school, which will both foster education and create jobs. As with all our projects, our goal is to build with sustainability in mind.


What do you enjoy most about your work?


The three things that I enjoy most are impressing our clients, the entire process of designing and building their properties, and seeing families get into their new homes.
