Announcing its annual list of an elite group of architecture and engineering firms, PSMJ Resources, Inc., named BWBR to its 2016 national Circle of Excellence. The honor recognizes the best managed A/E firms in the nation, representing the top 20 percent of participants in PSMJ’s annual A/E Financial Performance Benchmark Survey.
“In the design field, there are many avenues through which a firm can be recognized. To be honored for the way we operate as a business is a high compliment,” said Pete Smith, AIA, president and CEO. “To now be listed by PSMJ in four years, it’s an even greater recognition for the dedication and commitment the employees at BWBR have to making what we do for our clients successful.”
PSMJ Resources, Inc., an international management consulting firm for the architecture/engineering/construction industries, released the list of firms based on 13 key performance metrics that demonstrate outstanding achievements in profitability, overhead, cash flow, productivity, business development, staff growth, and turnover.
BWBR, a 94-year-old design firm based in the Upper Midwest, provides architectural, interior design, and planning services. PSMJ’s recognition comes on the heels of the AIA Minnesota Firm Award given to BWBR in 2015 as well as named in 2016 for Best in Business for architecture by Twin Cities Business magazine.
As one of the most prestigious firms in the region, BWBR serves institutional and corporate clients in nine market sectors, with health care, higher education, high-tech, office, and wellness making up a majority of work.
