GATE Named #1 HOT FIRM - Second Year in a Row, Earning Trifecta Award

Again, for the second year in a row, GATE has been named as the #1 HOT FIRM in the 2016 Zweig Awards. GATE steadily progressed through the HOT FIRM list over the last seven years (63rd, 47th, 37th, 29th, 19th, and then 3rd) finally reaching 1st place in 2015 and now again in 2016.

Grant Gibson, Founder and CEO, had this to say, “For the second time in a row, our HOT FIRM #1 position highlights our ability to grow in a difficult market due to a well-established and focused management team, hard-working and dedicated staff, strategic plans designed to maximize our backlog and provide new and challenging opportunities to our staff, and premium value to our Clients and shareholders. This award is a direct representation of our efforts to maintain a highly-valuable company that our Clients and staff want to work with."

Along with our ranking on the HOT FIRM list, GATE has also earned placement on the 2016 Best Firm To Work For List as well as gained the 2016 Marketing Excellence award for the GATEKEEPER newsletter published monthly. This has earned GATE the Trifecta Award.

The Zweig Group Hot Firm List recognizes the 100 fastest-growing architecture, engineering, planning, and environmental consulting firms in the United States and Canada. These firms have outperformed the economy and competitors to become leaders in their chosen fields. The ranking is based on a comparison of both actual dollar and percentage revenue growth over the trailing 3 years.

These awards are a testament of the effort, dedication and contribution of everyone at GATE to our success.
