SMMA Named as a Top Ranked Design Firm in New England by Engineering News-Record

SMMA has ranked #14 on a list of the top New England design firms in 2022—and #317 of all firms nationwide—by Engineering News-Record, an influential trade publication. 

The ENR Top 500 Design Firms 2022 list uses “design-specific revenue” to rank the 500 largest U.S.-based design firms by size, based on their performance in 2021. The list includes both publicly and privately held firms with an engineering and/or architecture focus. 

On the ENR New England list, SMMA ranks #2 for architecture-led firms headquartered in Massachusetts, and #5 for engineering. 

Of SMMA’s total revenue from design work, nearly $28 million came in the Education market, making SMMA the #1 ranked design firm in New England for K-12 school and Higher Education projects. For the Federal Government market, the firm ranks #3 in New England by revenue ($5.53 million). 

Overall, SMMA’s design-specific revenue last year stood at $50.27 million. The firm last week added three new members to its Board of Directors, coinciding with a period of strong growth since the start of the pandemic. Since March 2020, SMMA has added thirty-nine new hires, bringing the total number of employees to 214, a record for the firm.

ENR’s annual report offers a high-level overview of the state of the A/E/C industry in the U.S. and abroad. This year’s report notes a broadly upward trend in growth across the industry—the sixth year in a row that overall revenue has increased.
