Long Beach, CA – For the second consecutive year, SCS Engineers (SCS) has been ranked the nation’s number one Solid Waste consulting firm (in terms of revenue) by McGraw-Hill’s industry standard Engineering News-Record (ENR) magazine (July 2005 issue). SCS’ $52.9 million in annual solid waste revenue is $7.2 million more than the second ranked environmental services firm. This compares to the 2004 ranking when SCS was $1.8 million ahead of second place firm. In addition, for the second time in as many years, SCS was ranked as one of the 100 Fastest-Growing Architectural, Engineering, Planning, and Environmental Consulting Firms in the U.S on the Zweig Letter Hot Firm 2005 list (June 27, 2005 issue). The Zweig Letter had a record number of entries this year, making it even more difficult than in previous years to attain one of the top 100 spots. In spite of that added competition, SCS ranked 14 positions higher than last year.
These second consecutive year top rankings confirm SCS’ continued strong growth of more than 20 percent per annum over the past 3 years. SCS’ sustained success has stemmed from planned expansions into high-opportunity geographic markets through acquisitions and new offices; broadening services to include more construction and operations contracts; and pushing initiatives in Brownfields redevelopment services, Federal services, and distributed energy project development. Among several thousand recent projects, SCS provided remediation services for development of the Staples Center in downtown Los Angeles; performed environmental due diligence on transfer stations, hauling operations, and landfills in eight states for one of North America’s largest full-service solid waste management companies; completed voluntary remediation/Brownfield projects in more than a dozen states; provided landfill permit expansion and compliance services at hundreds of landfills; and continued to serve as one of the world’s leading authorities in the design, construction and operation of landfill gas collection systems, including installation of microturbines or fuel cells for landfill gas-to-energy generation at more than a dozen sites.
