DGR Engineering Selected to 2018 PSMJ Circle of Excellence

September 25, 2018

DGR Engineering has once again been honored by PSMJ Resources as one of seventy-two exceptional architecture and engineering firms named into the Circle of Excellence.  This is the fifth year in a row DGR Engineering has earned this award.

PSMJ’s Circle of Excellence is designed to highlight firms that are successfully managed and demonstrate outstanding achievements in areas such as productivity, business development, staff growth, staff turnover, and overhead management.

PSMJ’s Circle of Excellence honorees are chosen based on thirteen business metrics important to the successful operation of an engineering business, including the following:

  • Low Staff Turnover– Staff has remained stable through the years, providing clients with long-term relationships and deep loyalty, leading to a better understanding of the organizations with whom DGR Engineering works.
  • Operating Overhead Rate– DGR Engineering’s effective and efficient practices keep overhead costs down, helping to keep cost under control for clients.
  • Labor Utilization– PSMJ also noted DGR Engineering’s exceptional efficiency at focusing on productive work for its clients.

“DGR Engineering is honored to have been selected for the Circle of Excellence for five years in a row,” says Blair Metzger, DGR Engineering President. “Receiving this honor is a result of being entrusted by our many loyal clients to provide solutions to their needs, along with the efforts of dedicated staff members who have made DGR Engineering the employer of choice in this region”.

 “Each year, the Circle of Excellence firms come from all corners of the A/E space. This diversity demonstrates that success isn’t defined by a specific firm size, location, or market niche,” says Frank A. Stasiowski, FAIA, Founder and CEO of PSMJ Resources. “The top-performing firms just think and act differently from the rest of the pack to achieve extraordinary business performance.”

 “The firms recognized in the Circle of Excellence set the standard for outstanding and sustainable business results,” says Stasiowski. “Some firms have been in this prestigious group year after year!”
