The firms included architects, engineers, geo-scientists, environmental consultants, and others - creating a diverse cross-section of professional services.
Winners were selected based on both the quality of feedback received and the quantity of replies. Feedback quality is measured by score, but also by consistency and the ability to avoid abnormally low scores.

In fact, none of the identified winners had a single score below “Acceptable.”
