For their efforts, Goodwyn Mills Cawood has been named the ENR Southeast 2024 Design Firm of the Year. This recognition follows a year marked by substantial growth through revenue, acquisitions, procurement of some of the firm’s largest contracts to date, and expanding the firm’s footprint, all while maintaining a high caliber of work and commitment to feeling local in the communities they serve, according to a news release. 

Engineering News-Record, a benchmark publication for the architecture, engineering and construction industry, bestows the honor of Design Firm of the Year upon engineering and architecture firms across their 10 regions of the United States. The ENR Southeast region includes Alabama, the Carolinas, Florida, Georgia, Tennessee and Puerto Rico. The publication covers top design firms, both architects and engineers, as well as projects in the United States and worldwide.

In 2023, GMC grew in revenue by more than 30% from the previous year through high-profile projects and successful collaborations. The firm acquired two design firms, Walker Concepts Architecture of Charleston, S.C.; and Commercial Site Solutions of Greenville, S.C.; and Lutz, Fla., which bolstered its expertise and expanded its footprint with an additional office in Florida. 

With 25 offices in seven states throughout the Southeast along with a wide array of services and an extensive portfolio, GMC has grown to be a leading firm in the region that keeps deep roots in the communities it serves. As referenced by the publication, the firm notably exceeds in “thinking locally while succeeding regionally,” emphasizing the team’s strength of providing service at a local level through valuing relationships.

“When you can combine strong local personal relationships with high technical expertise, we call that our superpower,” GMC CEO Jeffrey Brewer said.

The firm has been involved in notable projects throughout the Southeast, including the recently completed Huntsville City Hall and Montgomery Whitewater, currently in phase two.

Major projects currently underway include the Alabama Statehouse, Auburn University STEM and Agricultural Complex, Gorrie Hall at the University of Alabama at Birmingham, Florence Sportsplex, West Alabama Highway project, Mobile Civic Center, and the new Gulf Shores High School, among others.
