The ENR Southwest Top Starts list for 2013 is not yet a week old, and shows that stability seems to have returned to the construction and development industry. Coming in at roughly $3.7 Billion, the 2013 Top Starts were nearly identical to the 2012 Top Starts.

That’s a lot of design.

Beyond the top 25 starts, though are the small to medium sized jobs that are the bedrock of the industry. Nearly all of the “big” jobs and the “small” jobs, too, will be presented in the 2014 Top Design Firms list to debut in the May 21 print edition of ENR Southwest.

This list will list by 2013 revenue the biggest and best design firms in the Southwest and will likely top out at about 75 firms. For now, we present the firms in alphabetical order.
