The video contest, intended to communicate and build on the successes of the City’s Smart City.

Winning companies will host a visit by the Mayor with their employees and the winning videos are featured on the City’s business portal. Urban CEO and President, Edward M. D’Alba, PE, stated, “Urban is proud to be recognized along with Viridity Energy and United by Blue for this achievement. On behalf of the entire Urban team, we are excited to host Mayor Michael Nutter at our headquarters in Philadelphia.”


The announcement came at the end of the City’s month-long series of events highlighting ongoing job creation and retention throughout the city. Coincidently, Urban recently signed a 15-year lease at Penn Mutual for its headquarters to remain in Philadelphia, keeping approximately 280 jobs in the City. “Urban Engineers, Inc. has a distinguished history in Philadelphia beginning more than fifty years ago and is a great business success story for our city,” said Mayor Michael Nutter. “I am thrilled that Urban will continue to build their business in Philadelphia.”
