Epstein Ranked by ENR as one of the Top 100 Design-Build Firms

#90 with reported D-B revenues of $170M!

It’s not every day you can say that a nearly 96 year old firm can claim it’s done something for the first time – but today we can – ENR’s Top 100 Design-Build Firms was just released and for the first time ever we made it - coming in at … #90, with reported Design-Build revenues of $170M!


Much of this Design-Build revenue was generated through two significant projects – the $41.5M Daily’s Premium Meats Bacon Plant in St. Joseph, Missouri, completed in 2016, and the $294M Seaboard Foods – Triumph Foods Pork Processing Plant in Sioux City, Iowa, a facility that is our largest-design build project in our history and one that will soon be operational. In addition, we expect that for ENR’s 2018 Design-Build chart that we’ll move higher up the rankings when we also report revenues for our latest Design-Build project, the $280M Prestage Foods of Iowa Pork Processing Plant in Eagle Grove, Iowa, a plant that is scheduled to be completed in 2018.


If you are curious, amongst local (Chicagoland) firms, we came in five slots ahead of Pepper who were ranked at 95. Local Design-Builders ranked ahead of us included McShane, at 69, Berglund at 65, Clayco, which came in at 12 and Walsh, who were ranked 7th.

Lastly, the #1 ranked Design-Builder was Bechtel, who reported $14B in Design-Build revenues!
