ENR Southeast is excited to announce its 2024 Design Firm of the Year: Goodwyn Mills Cawood.

The firm, based in Montgomery, Alabama, grew on paper and on the ground, completing its 18th and 19th acquisitions, opening a new office in Lutz, Fla., and growing its revenues by more than 30% over the previous year. 

With 24 offices across the Southeast, GMC’s 2023 saw work on several notable projects throughout the region, including some of the firm’s largest ever in their respective sectors, including an $85-million health care facility in Georgia, as well as Alabama’s largest high school at Gulf Shores. The firm was recently awarded the project for Alabama’s new Statehouse, as well as GMC's largest single contract ever with the Alabama State Dept. of Corrections. 

Learn more about GMC and its stellar 2023 in ENR Southeast's May 13 edition, along with our Top Design Firm rankings, which will gauge how design firms in Alabama, Georgia, Florida, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee and Puerto Rico fared in 2023.
