Davis, Bowen & Friedel, Inc. (DBF), has held its position for more than eight consecutive years within the top 300 architecture, engineering, and construction (AEC) firms in the country as ranked by Building Design+Construction magazine. Positioned at #33, DBF was the only Eastern Shore-based firm to be on the magazine’s list of U.S. Engineering/Architecture (E/A) companies, as noted in their July 2016 “Giants 300 Report”. Additionally, the firm ranked #15 nationally on the magazine’s list of Multifamily Sector Engineering Firms.
The magazine annually ranks the largest commercial AEC firms in the nation based on reported revenue data which includes building information modeling (BIM) revenue, building-type revenue, green building work, and other criteria. Building sectors recognized in the nationally distributed publication include commercial office, multi-family residential, retail, hotels, transit, recreation/sports, healthcare, education, and government structures.
Founded in 1983, DBF has been providing professional architectural, engineering, and surveying services for over thirty years to clients located both on and off of the Eastern Shore. A few of the more recent projects which contributed to the firm’s ranking in the “Giants 300 Report” include the new Rehoboth City Hall and Parking Department buildings, a wide range of projects for Delaware Health and Social Services, site engineering for the Mariner and Beacon Middle School expansions in Delaware’s Cape Henlopen school district, residential subdivision planning and engineering at Governors in Lewes, and the Betze Library at Delaware Technical Community College’s Owens Campus in Georgetown.
“As revenues continue to uptick for the building industry, gradual as they may be in some areas of the country, we are pleased to find ourselves again on the Giants 300 list,” stated DBF principal Michael R. Wigley, AIA. “It’s undoubtedly a team effort, and none of it happens without the trust and support given to us by the clients we serve.”
