Urban Jumps 10 Spots in Latest ENR Design Ranking
Publication Date
July 12th 2013

 Urban Engineers (Urban) has jumped 10 spots in Engineering News Record’s 2013 ranking of Top Design Firms. The ranking, which is based on 2012 total revenue, indicates that Urban continues to excel despite economic difficulties. As noted in ENR, “The signs of the recession’s end can be seen. The Top 500, taken as a group, had over­all design revenue of $90.24 billion in 2012, up 6.1% from $85.06 billion in 2011. This marks the second year since the recession began that the Top 500 experienced revenue growth.”


“Urban is thrilled to be ranked among the top design firms in America,” said CEO and President Edward M. D’Alba, PE. “While revenues are improving for the first time in several years, the postponement and/or delay of projects of significance need to be addressed. A long term transportation bill with adequate funding for all modes would go a long way in putting America back on its feet and people to work on projects that will provide economic benefits for decades to come.”
