The Portico Group is No. 5 for green design on Engineering News Record Magazine’s sports, entertainment, and civic design list, and No. 83 on the magazine’s overall list for top 100 green design firms in the U.S. According to ENR, “The health of the green design market can be seen from the results of the ENR Top 100 Green Design Firms list. As a group, the Top 100 generated $4.50 billion in design revenue in 2011 from projects registered with and actively seeking certification from third-party ratings groups under objective sustainable-design standards, such as the U.S. Green Building Council’s (USGBC) Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) standards. This revenue is a 20.4% increase over the $3.74 billion in 2010 for the group. Domestically, green design revenue rose 19.4%, to $3.91 billion, in 2011 from $3.30 billion in 2010. The Top 100 had $589.6 million in revenue from green projects outside the U.S. in 2011, up 33.1% from $442.9 million in 2010.” See the announcement on the ENR website.
