Partner on ENR's Top 500 Design Firms List

Partner Engineering and Science, Inc. is proud to be featured on the 2020 Engineering News-Record Top 500 Design Firms list! This is Partner’s eighth year included on this competitive list. We’re proud to say that each year we’ve been listed higher than the year prior. In 2020, Partner has moved up nine spots to #140 out of the top 500 Design Firms listed.

“We are honored to be recognized once again on this prestigious list,” says Partner CEO Joseph P. Derhake, PE. “Our success in 2019 was due in part to the commercial real estate bull market. In 2020, we are working to adjust our business to the new COVID paradigm and help our commercial real estate clients adjust to strains and opportunities.”

ENR's data indicates that design firms anticipated high hopes that 2020 would provide the tenth year in a row of market growth. However, the emergence of COVID-19 pandemic in late February devasted many scrambling to cope with the disaster.

Looking back on 2019, revenue earned from ENR’s Top 500 as a group reached a record total of $103.24 billion – up 2.1% from $101.16 billion in 2018. Domestic market growth was also up 8.9% to $86.60 billion in 2019 from $80.55 billion in 2018. Projects outside the U.S. fell 20.2% to $16.44 billion.
