Garver named ENR Texas & Louisiana’s 2020 Design Firm of the Year

Garver employees across the country spent 2019 celebrating the firm’s centennial year by connecting with clients and students, while providing the same exemplary services clients have come to expect over a century. 

Garver’s year of celebration and accomplishments was recognized recently when Engineering News-Record Texas & Louisiana named it the 2020 Design Firm of the Year. In announcing the honor, which recognizes the top firm in a five-state region comprising of Arkansas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Oklahoma, and Texas, the magazine noted Garver’s continued growth with more than 30 offices across a 13-state footprint and the Garver Chain Reaction Challenge held last year to encourage the next generation of engineers.

Garver’s accomplishments across the region will be detailed further in the May 25 issue of ENR Texas & Louisiana.

“The last year really was a great year for Garver, and we were happy to share it with so many of those closest to us,” said President and CEO Brock Hoskins. “We look forward to continuing to work alongside these communities, and our valued clients, on the critical projects they need to keep growing.”

Along with the company-wide celebration in 2019, employees in these offices continued to transform the infrastructure across the growing region. Contracts awarded to Garver in the last year include work with the Texas Department of Transportation, the George Bush Intercontinental Airport in Houston, along with the Cities of Norman and Enid, Oklahoma on projects aimed at creating sustainable water supplies, and many more.

Garver’s growth was also reflected in this region with the opening of offices in New Orleans; Olive Branch, Mississippi; Oklahoma City; and College Station and El Paso, Texas. In 2020, that dedication has continued with office openings in Rogers, Arkansas and Gulfport, Mississippi.

Garver celebrated its centennial year in 2019 with the Garver Chain Reaction Challenge, which reached an estimated 14,000 students across the country. Garver donated STEM kits and funding to 100 schools, then challenged them to create Rube Goldberg-style chain reaction contraptions. More than 1,000 students worked alongside engineers from Garver during school events throughout the year.
