Each year, Architect Magazine sets out to review firms from all over the country and determine who ranks highest in the categories of business, design and sustainability. Last week we were notified that el dorado was ranked the #11 design firm in the United States in the 2016 Architect 50 Survey. 2016 marks our 20th year of commitment to design excellence in architecture and fabrication. We are thrilled that the survey places us amongst firms we’ve long looked to for design inspiration and business guidance.

We salute our fellow Kansas City practices Helix, Hufft Projects, BNIM and Populous who were additionally included in the survey. And to our friend Marlon Blackwell, the #1 design firm for 2016, we offer a BIG congrats but politely point out that our #11 is really the equivalent of two #1’s. Better luck next year, Marlon.

We thank Architect Magazine and the jurors for assembling the 2016 Architect 50 Survey. The list is impressive and humbling, reminding us that, collectively, we make one another better each year. We look forward to 2017!
