Firm of the Year

This award is presented to the ACEC member firm that, through their activities, has made a significant contribution to the advancement of the association and the consulting engineering profession.

The 2019 Firm of the Year Award was presented to Barr Engineering Co. This award is presented to an ACEC/MN member firm that has made a significant contribution to the advancement of the association and the consulting engineering profession. Barr Engineering Co. has a long history of giving back to the association – its employees attend numerous events, serve on committees and the board of directors—as one employee is finishing her term on the board of directors, another is waiting in the wings. Other employees currently serve on the Workforce Development Committee, Minnesota Structural Engineers Association (MNSEA), Awards Committee, and the Energy and Natural Resources Committee. The firm has hosted several Women in Engineering sessions at their office and leaders have encouraged participation from their staff in this activity. Barr Engineering Co. employees are pictured above with their award.
