The Engineering News-Record (ENR) annual Top Design Firms and the ENR Midwest Top Design Firms lists are out…and ms consultants made the cut.


We’re thrilled to rank on these notable lists yet again!

Top 500 Design Firm - A National Ranking

On the ENR 2018 Top 500 Design Firms list, ms landed a spot as the #265 in the nation.


The annual ENR list ranks companies according to revenue for design services performed in 2017. Qualifying companies include architects, engineers, multi-discipline, geotechnical engineers, landscape architects, planners, and more.


A 2013 study  by the University of Colorado-Boulder found that only 7.9% of mid-size firms remained on the Top 500 Design Firms list for 25 years. With the hard work and dedication of all employees, ms has been able to remain on this list since our initial ranking in 1982.

ENR Midwest Top Design Firms

The ENR Midwest Top Design Firms list ranks the largest U.S.-based designs firms, both publicly and privately held, based on regional design-specific revenue. For the ENR Midwest survey, design revenue is included in Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, Ohio, and Wisconsin.


ms consultants landed on three sets for rankings for ENR Midwest Top Design Firms:


#44 Top Midwest Design Firm

#9 for Design Services in Ohio

#19 for Design Services in Iowa

Making the ENR Lists

How does ms consultants get on the ENR lists each year?


The answer is simple. Two reasons: our clients and our employees!


As a multidisciplinary firm, ms has the great advantage of being exposed to many different clients and projects. And, the amazing engineers, architects, planners, and more at our nine office locations make the work happen.


Without our clients and dedicated employees, we wouldn’t have stayed on the ENR list for more than 35 years.


Thank you to both our clients and our employees. Here’s to another 35+ years ranking as a top design firm!
