PORTLAND, Ore., May 9, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Cardno has climbed over 100 places to rank 34th on ENR's Top 500 Design Firms list for 2011 making it the fastest growing firm in the industry according to the annual survey.
Engineering News-Record (ENR), a McGraw-Hill publication, released its 2011 list of the top 500 design firms, ranked according to revenue for design services performed in 2010. Cardno is pleased to announce that its US operations have been ranked on three of these lists – Top 500 Design Firms, Top 20 Industrial Process/Petroleum Firms, and Top 100 Pure Designers.
Cardno ranked 34th overall and is the highest ranked firm that is classified as providing both engineering and environmental services on the Top 500 Design Firms list. The firm moved up more than 100 places since last year as a result of organic growth in key markets and strategic mergers.
Cardno also ranked 17th on the Top 100 Pure Designers and achieved the distinction of being the highest ranked predominantly environmental firm on the list. In addition, the firm placed for the first time on the Top 20 Industrial Process and Petroleum list.

Looking forward, Cardno expects to further increase its standing on the ENR lists as we expand our service offerings to both current and new clients."
Mr. Renshaw thanked the talented staff of Cardno's operations across the Americas and their clients for the firm's ongoing success and growth.
