Engineering News Record published its Top Global Design Firms and Top 100 International Design Firm lists last month.
Canada-based consulting engineering firms figured prominently in the Top Global Design Firm list, which is based on the revenue from design, regardless of where the project is located.

Golder of Mississauga was 41, Dessau of Laval, Quebec was 58, and Trow Global of Brampton, Ont. was 76.
