EASTON — For the 11th consecutive year, Davis, Bowen & Friedel Inc. has made its way onto the list of the top 300 architecture, engineering and construction firms in the country, as ranked by Building Design+Construction magazine.
Positioned at No. 42 on the Top Engineering/Architecture Firms report, DBF maintains its reputation as one of the top-rated EA firms in the nation.
The firm also was ranked No. 55 in the Science & Technology Sector, No. 78 in the Office Sector for Engineering Firms and was featured in the “Giants 300 Report” for its role in incorporating in-demand services. Early this year, DBF expanded its surveying services to include UAV (drone) services, providing for more efficient, safer and cost-effective drone-based aerial data collection.
The magazine annually ranks the largest commercial AEC firms in the nation based on reported revenue data, which includes building information modeling revenue, building-type revenue and green building work. Building sectors recognized in the nationally distributed publication include commercial office, multi-family residential, retail, hotels, transit, recreation/sports, healthcare, education and government structures.
Founded in 1983, DBF has been providing professional architectural, engineering and surveying services for over 35 years to clients located both on and off of the Eastern Shore.

“We are pleased to find ourselves on the Giants 300 list once again,” DBF principal Michael R. Wigley said. “DBF is always looking for innovative ways to see that our client’s vision is exceeded through a streamlined process.
