What We Do

With our commitment to safety, sustainability and client satisfaction, Burns & McDonnell continues to gain industry recognition. In 2014, Engineering News-Record named us #18 in the Top 500 Design Firms. See how we ranked in specific categories. Among the reasons for our continued success is the low staff turnover that results from being a 100 percent employee-owned ESOP S Corporation. This spirit of ownership drives each and every staff member to contribute to our mission to make our clients successful.

Burns & McDonnell was recently honored to be named to the list of the 2014 Best Places to Work in Illinois.

The Chicago office is branching out to serve our clients better: Visit us in Milwaukee and Madison, Wis.
