Baseline has earned position #38 on the 2014 Hot Firm List.  2014 Hot Firm ListZweigWhite’s annual List is an exclusive ranking of the 100 fastest-growing architecture, engineering, planning and environmental consulting firms in the United States and Canada.  Rankings are based on the highest percentage revenue growth and dollar revenue growth over a three-year period compared to other entrants.  Baseline was the highest ranking Colorado-based firm to make this year’s list.

“In an industry comprised of over 100,000 firms, those who have made the list have demonstrated their ability to grow, prosper and be recognized among the elite 100 fastest-growing firms,” said Mark Zweig, founder and CEO.  “The economic recovery is well underway as firms on the list in 2014 boast an impressive median growth rate of 72 percent, up significantly from 44 percent in 2013.”

Baseline Principal, John McLain, attributes three reasons for making this year’s Hot Firm List.  “First, we have a hugely diverse project base—from planning the routing of miles of pipeline to designing a modern roundabout for the U.S. DOE, to engineering the removal of drinking water contaminants and to master planning communities,” he explained.  “Second, we have expanded into North Dakota and Wyoming—regions with strong economic growth.”  His third reason, “Our clients have diverse needs so we’re researching expanding our services to include environmental engineering, traffic planning, ArcGIS, landscape architecture and structural engineering.”
