Cushing Terrell Named Engineering News-Record Mountain States Design Firm of the Year

Multidisciplinary design firm Cushing Terrell has been named ENR Mountain States Design Firm of the Year alongside SWCA Environmental Consultants. Firms are chosen for this designation based on a range of factors including regional revenues, new initiatives, current projects, and community and industry contributions, among other considerations annually.

"Given our founding 85 years ago in Billings, Montana, and the fact that today we have offices and projects across the Mountain Region, this area of the country holds particular significance for our team," said Greg Matthews, Cushing Terrell President and CEO. "This recognition — and the success we've seen over the years — is thanks to our clients and the talents of our team members who use their skills and passion to drive the initiatives and incredible design work that make an honor like this possible."

Cushing Terrell's selection is credited to the firm's 2022 Best Firms to Work For designation by the Zweig Group, a program that ranks AEC firms in the U.S. and Canada based on their workplace culture and practices, employee benefits, retention rates and more; their AIA 2030 Commitment and SME Climate Commitment, which provides a path for small- and medium-sized enterprises to join the United Nations Race to Zero campaign — a coalition committed to achieving net-zero emissions by no later than 2050; the recent launch of a formalized pro bono program; and significant recent and ongoing regional projects such as the Montana Heritage Center in Helena, MT, the Downtown Boise YMCA in Boise, ID, and Montana State University's Romney Hall in Bozeman, MT.

The 2023 ENR Mountain States Design Firm of the Year distinction is the second for the firm — the first of which was awarded in 2016.
