05 June 2019 2 min. read

Design and engineering consultancy Atwell has been named one of the Top 500 Design Firms in Engineering News-Record’s (ENR) annual ranking of companies in the US.

Publication ENR reports on news concerning the engineering, architectural, and construction industries. The magazine’s annual ranking of US-based design firms is based on revenue for design services performed within the year (in this case, 2018).

This year, Southfield, Michigan–based Atwell has reached its highest position ever, at number 129. Senior vice president Tim Augustine attributes the firm’s higher placement to continued company growth and steadfast commitment to clients.

“Above all, we focus on delivering the Atwell Promise, which focuses on our client relationships, industry knowledge, responsiveness to our clients’ needs, technical competencies and commitment to quality,” Augustine said. “Strong client relationships are the key to our success, and it’s our employees’ dedication and focus on our clients that lands us on ENR’s list of top firms in the nation and in every region we serve.”

Atwell offers a full range of civil, electrical, and mechanical engineering services, as well as program management and construction offerings. The firm also delivers land planning, survey, environmental and regulatory, and GIS/mapping services. Atwell primarily serves the power and energy, oil and gas, and real estate and land development markets.

The company currently has 600+ employees across more than 20 US offices.

Atwell also recently received a Zweig-Group Hot Firm Award – which recognizes the fastest-growing firms in the country – as well as ranking as one of Crain’s Coolest Places to Work.

Dallas-based Jacobs Engineering Group ranked first on the 2018 list. Other notable design and engineering firms that made ENR’s Top 500 list were Aecom (2), WSP (8), Stantec (9), Burns & McDonnell (10), Arcadis (13), SNC-Lavalin (18), Mott MacDonald (33), and Arup (39).
