Zweig White Information Services has identified the 100 fastest-growing U.S. architecture, engineering, and environmental consulting firms for its annual ranking, The Zweig Letter Hot Firm List. These firms have outperformed the economy and competitors to become industry leaders.

With a record number of entries, it was the most competitive list we’ve ever put together, said Mark Zweig, founder of ZweigWhite. &quotFirms that commit to revenue growth while investing in marketing, information technology, and other infrastructure are usually the most successful in our industry. They have shown they have the ability to sustain their success, year after year. The hottest firms in the business-those with consistent growth and success at outperforming the economy and their peers-are the ones that attract top staff and the best clients.&quot
