Freese and Nichols Leads Environmental and Geotechnical Market Sector for Fourth Consecutive Year

The regional editions of Engineering News-Record (ENR) have released their annual rankings of design firms, and for the fourth consecutive year, Freese and Nichols is the top-ranked environmental and geotechnical engineering firm in the Texas & Louisiana region. In Oklahoma, we’ve reached the top five for the first time, and we continue our ascent among Southeast U.S. design firms as well.

The rankings are based on 2023 design-specific revenue within each region and do not include revenue from our non-design services, such as construction management.
