Pennoni Associates, an award-winning consulting engineering firm headquartered in Philadelphia, is pleased to announce they have been ranked by Roads and Bridges Magazine as #41 on the Top 50 Bridge Design Firms list. This list is considered one of the premier go-to lists of the top companies in North America.

Announced in the August 2009 edition of the magazine, the rankings were based on ballots sent to over 10,000 government officials. These government subscribers were asked to pick the best in the following categories: bridge projects; road and highway projects; airport projects; mass transit and rail projects; storm water and sanitary projects; and design-build projects. The responses created a complete and thorough series of lists of the top designers.

Lowdermilk, P.E., Vice President and Transportation Technology Principal. “What makes this ranking even more exciting is the fact that this ranking is based on results from owners…our clients.  What better honor is there than to be ranked as one of the Top 50 National Bridge Firms by your clients?”
