Denver, CO, May 20, 2011 --(PR.com
)-- Architect, the official publication of the American Institute of Architects, has recognized DLR Group as one of the top 10 design firms in the United States for the third consecutive year. DLR Group is 8th on the 2011 ARCHTECT 50 list published in May.
DLR Group is the highest ranked architecture firm in Colorado. It is one of only three firms to be ranked in the top 10 of the ARCHITECT 50 every year since the publication began its list in 2009.
To compile its list, Architect uses a ranking system evaluating three essential components of a thriving and successful design practice: sustainability, profitability and design quality.
“The criteria for the Architect 50 ranking mirrors DLR Group’s strategic approach to our business,” said DLR Group Principal Edward Bledowski, AIA, Denver and Colorado Springs office leader. “DLR Group is committed to the tenets of Architecture 2030 and sustainable design, profitability and opportunity through employee ownership, and our promise to elevate the human experience through design.”
The 2011 Architect 50 rankings were determined from an online survey evaluating financials, design awards, and sustainable design practices of United States architectural firms.
