DBF Again Ranked Among Top Mid-Atlantic Design Firms


Davis, Bowen & Friedel, Inc. (DBF), has once again been ranked within the region’s top design firms by Engineering News-Record (ENR). The publication’s 2017 “Mid-Atlantic Top Design Firms” report positioned DBF at #75 and, additionally, the firm was listed at #5 in the Delaware sector. ENR’s rankings are based upon revenue earned in the states of Maryland, Delaware, Virginia, Pennsylvania, and West Virginia, as well as Washington, D.C. during 2016.

An established publication with a focus on the engineering, architecture, and construction industries, ENR compiles reported data annually and shares it with nearly 50,000 magazine subscribers and over 196,000 web visitors. For more than a century, ENR and its sister magazine, Architectural Record – along with the databases of F.W. Dodge & Sweets – were a segment of the McGraw Hill Construction business unit; this unit became Dodge Data & Analytics in 2014.

Since 1983, DBF has been providing professional engineering, architectural, and surveying services to businesses, individuals, municipalities, and government entities in Maryland, Delaware, and Virginia. A few projects from this past year which contributed to the firm’s “Mid-Atlantic Top Design Firms” ranking include the Rehoboth Beach City Hall complex, civil engineering for H.O. Brittingham, Sussex Consortium and Rehoboth Elementary Schools; The Grove at Carillon Woods; Proximity Malt; and multiple projects for the Dover Air Force Base in Delaware. Within Maryland, projects included Hurlock’s water main, the Bonnie Brook water facility, a wastewater treatment facility at Fort Whaley, and the new Berlin Fire Station 3. In Virginia, the firm provided services for NASA’s Wallops Flight Facility, as well as Crisfield’s wind energy project, street repairs, bulkhead replacement, and new green space.

“Since historically our firm has emphasized a commitment to providing exceptional engineering services to our region, it’s particularly gratifying to be listed by Engineering News-Record. We continue to see strong growth in Delaware and rising productivity now on the eastern shores of Maryland and Virginia,” stated DBF principal Michael R. Wigley, AIA, LEED AP.
