River Consulting claimed two spots in the 2015 Top 500 Design Firm Sourcebook by Engineering News-Record (ENR). Published annually, the ENR Sourcebook recognizes top-performing architectural and engineering firms in particular industries of expertise. The sourcebook provides detailed market analysis and rankings of the previously appointed ENR Top 500 Design Firms. River Consulting took the 25th spot for the ‘Refineries and Petrochemical Plants’ category and the 42nd spot in the ‘Industrial Process’ category in the recent Engineering News-Record.

River Consulting has continued to see significant activity in the petroleum sector since first appearing on the list in 2012. Most of this activity results from services related to gas treating and processing plants and compression stations serving shale plays, working with sister companies and key construction partners to deliver new plants. Additionally, River Consulting has seen steady activity for industrial process industry clients with noteworthy projects for clients in chemicals, food and grain, and plant nutrients.

“Over the past few years we’ve seen markets such as oil and gas continue with fairly strong activity, while others have fallen off due to industry challenges and economic

cycles,” stated Gregory DiFrank, president. “With our industry diversification and ability to evolve to meet clients’ changing needs, River Consulting has continued our decades of solutions and expertise to be competitive in today’s environment. Appearing on these two lists affirms our efforts to remain a go-to resource for our clients and couldn’t be done without all of our industry consultants and hardworking team.”

The ENR Top 500 recognizes top- performing architectural and engineering firms. River Consulting ranked 390 in the Engineering News- Record in the 11 May 2015 issue.
