Geo-Companies in ENR’s 2018 Top 500 Design Firms

Top 500 Design Firms - With a Geo Emphasis

Top 500 Design Firms - With a Geo Emphasis

ENR’s top 500 design firms of 2018 is out and I’m continuing a tradition I started a few years ago by listing the geo-companies that made the list.  These rankings are based on revenue for design services in the previous calendar year. I have extracted a subset of the list to see rankings of firms that are strong in geotechnical / geological related services.

I included firms that self-identified as geotechnical firms, as well as engineering firms that I know to have a strong geo emphasis. I’m sure there are some that I missed, or maybe a few that could have been left out. I also included some of the major A&E firms that provide these types of services. Accordingly, it’s still a bit subjective on who is included.  If I missed a firm or you think I should take one off, leave a comment.

Without further ado, here is the list of top Geo-Companies of 2018 (along with their change in ranking relative to 2017):
