CRB’s Growth Earns Recognition in ENR’s Top 500 Design Firms List

CRB improves in the Engineering News-Record (ENR) Top 500 Design Firms list, landing at number 101. The 2021 ENR rankings, a key industry standard, mark the fourth consecutive year of CRB’s growth in the annual list. Improving from 107th in 2020, CRB’s rise is tied to its increasing and industry-leading work for clients across the life sciences and food and beverage spaces. The 2021 list also sees CRB breaking into the Top 20 Design Firms for Industrial Process.

Additionally, ENR recently issued its international rankings, placing CRB in the top 40 for industrial process design less than five years after the company established its international presence with offices in Stuttgart, Germany; Basel, Switzerland; and Toronto, Canada.
