McHENRY – In a market characterized by slow recovery, HR Green continues to ascend the annual Engineering News Record list of the Top 500 design firms in the United States. ENR recently released its 2013 list of top firms, showing HR Green at number 185. This represents a three-point climb for HR Green from its 188th place ranking in 2012. The rankings are based on previous years’ revenues.

“We offer a diverse array of products and services, and we are geographically well positioned,” said Daniel. He added, “These factors have helped us to weather a tough economy better than many of our peers.”
