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

The regional editions of Engineering News-Record (ENR) have released their annual rankings of design firms, and for the third consecutive year, Freese and Nichols is the top-ranked environmental and geotechnical engineering firm in the Texas & Louisiana region. In the Southeast U.S., we continue to rise in the rankings among design firms, and it’s also our first year to be ranked in Louisiana.

The rankings are based on 2022 design-specific revenue within each region and do not include revenue from our non-design services, such as construction management.

Overall, Freese and Nichols ranked No. 79, with $24.3 million in design revenue in the region. It’s our highest ranking yet in the Southeast US, up 10 spots from a year ago. Last year, we were 89 with $17 million.  View the full list at the ENR website.
