Baird, Hampton & Brown is proud to announce our second consecutive ranking on Engineering News Record Texas and Louisiana’s Top Design Firms list. We have ranked #77 overall and #28 in the Master Planned Development/Site Infrastructure sector. BHB is honored to be included on this annual list that ranks both publicly and privately held U.S. companies, based on revenue for design specific services.
We have continued to see impressive growth at BHB in the past year, from adding structural engineering to our list of services to opening a new office in San Antonio. Since adding structural engineering in January 2020, the team has continued to grow and take on new projects and clients. The addition of a new office was another great growth opportunity for us, allowing us to better serve our clients in the San Antonio area and gain new prospects. Our firm was also recognized for the third time by Zweig Group for their ‘Best Firms to Work For’ award and ranked #12 in the 100-199 employee category.
Over the last year, BHB has worked on several noteworthy projects. The largest project to break ground was Wildcat Residential Site Development in Godley, a 140.75 acre residential development that is located adjacent to Godley High School and Middle School. The development will consist of 600 single family detached residential homes, 19.5 acres of open space, and one mile of concrete hike and bike trails that connect the development to a community park and high school. The project design began in July 2020 and construction phase 1 started in May 2021. The development is scheduled for three phases, with an estimated overall public infrastructure cost over $16 million.
Another notable project for BHB in the past year was the Debbie Lane Reconstruction, which is our largest roadway project to date. This $16 million reconstruction project in Arlington, Texas provides Civil engineering, land surveying, landscape design, street scaping and electrical street lighting services to 1.5 miles of roadway improvements. Debbie Lane starts at the Mansfield city limit and connects to State Highway 360 frontage road. The two lanes will be widened into four lanes and sidewalks will be included in the city limits. Four signaled intersections (two of which may become roundabouts), and a 25-year capacity development of an underground storm drain are also included.
We are thankful for our outstanding staff and building partners that helped us in receiving this award, we couldn’t do it without you. We are excited for the years to come and our continued growth as a firm.
