Clark Nexsen Earns a Top Spot in ARCHITECT Magazine’s 2018 “Architect 50” Ranking of U.S. Firms

Clark Nexsen ranked a Top 20 U.S. design firm in the 2018 Architect 50Number 20 ranking based on firm’s overall business success, commitment to sustainability, and design excellence

Clark Nexsen has been ranked the No. 20 leading architecture and design firm in the U.S., according to ARCHITECT Magazine, the official publication of the American Institute of Architects (AIA), which annually publishes its Architect 50 list.

Most lists are revenue-based, but the Architect 50 evaluates firms across a broad range of categories. The judges analyzed 160 firm entries this year — the largest number in the ten year history of the rankings. Clark Nexsen had strong scores in each of the three main categories: business, sustainability, and design excellence.

“We are both proud and honored by this recognition,” said Dennis Stallings, FAIA, Design Director at Clark Nexsen. “It validates for us that in key areas of practice, we are doing things successfully.”

In addition, the firm has been ranked No. 3 on the Top Business category. The business ranking evaluates firms on the basis of net revenue, profitability, financial commitment to both research and pro bono work, diversity and employee benefits.

“We have had a terrific year,” said Clymer Cease, FAIA, Clark Nexsen Chairman of the Board. “We attribute our success to our commitment to provide clients with exceptional design and professional services.”

This is the fifth year Clark Nexsen has made the top 50 on ARCHITECT’s list since the magazine launched the rankings program in 2009.

ARCHITECT magazine is a leading publication in the architecture and engineering Industry. It provides architecture news, market intelligence, business and technology solutions, continuing education, a building products database, and other architecture resources for the practicing architect.

The full list can be found in the November 2018 issue, or on the ARCHITECT magazine’s website.
