It’s Never Too Late to Talk About Recognition

…especially when you get to brag a little.

 

ENR Top Design Firms: Southeast

ENR 2014 AwardSeamon Whiteside has earned the #10 spot in the Top 20 Design Firms in the state. We also placed a respectable 76th in the Top 100 Design Firms in the Southeast (FL, GA, SC, & NC).

We’re pretty pleased with the results because among in addition to illustrating our excellent professional services and how happy we keep our clients (can’t make $ without maintaining both), it also shows how well we managed the financial depression over the last few years. We are excited about the direction we are headed, the new employees we have been able to add to our work family and the type and number of new and revitalized projects that are coming in our door; and we are only getting started.
