Ranked as one of ENR'S Top 100 Green Design Firms

McGraw-Hill Construction's Engineering News-Record (ENR) has published their annual Top Green Design Firms survey results. Companies are ranked based on their 2012 design work on projects registered with and seeking certification from national or international 3rd party green organizations such as the Green Building Initiative or the U.S. Green Building Council's Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) standards. RDG is excited to be among the Top 100 Green Design Firms again this year!!!

"Interest in sustainable design has been building over the past 10 years and continues to gain momentum. Further, market sectors that once looked askance at the notion of green building as an unnecessary upfront capital expense now are embracing the long-term value of energy savings promised by sustainability. ENR's top Green Design Firms bypasses "green-washing" hype to objectively measure the market based on standards and 2012 financial data. Cumulatively, the firms on this list generated $4.18 billion in revenue from green projects in 2012: $3.54 billion in the U.S., and $723.2 million abroad."
