Only San Diego-based firm to make prestigious list recognizing 100 fastest-growing firms
in architecture, engineering, planning and environmental consulting
SAN DIEGO AND LOS ANGELES – Xpera Group, California’s most comprehensive group of construction consulting experts, announced today that it has been named to Zweig Group’s 2015 Hot Firms List. It is the only San Diego-based firm to make the list and among the youngest to earn the honor.
Each year, the Zweig Group’s Hot Firm List recognizes the 100 fastest-growing architecture, engineering, planning and environmental consulting firms in the United States and Canada. These are the firms that have outperformed the economy and competitors to become leaders in their chosen fields. Xpera Group earned a spot in the top 100 in the first year it qualified to do so, with a ranking of 77.
Placement on the list is based on both percentage revenue growth and dollar revenue growth over a three-year period. Firms are required to have at least $1 million in revenues beginning in 2011.
Based in Fayetteville, Ark., Zweig Group serves as management consultants to the architecture, engineering and planning industry. Their annual Hot Firms List is highly coveted by professionals in the field, similar to the customer service rankings produced by J.D. Powers.
Zweig Group will officially announce the winners of the Hot Firms List at its annual national conference, to be held on Sept. 3 and Sept. 4 in Boston. A full list of winners can be found on the Zweig Group website.
Xpera Group was founded in August 2009, at the depths of the “Great Recession” that devastated the building industry, particularly in California. Despite these economic challenges, the firm, which provides a diverse range of construction and real estate consulting services, has expanded rapidly, with double-digit growth each year since its inception.
Xpera Group is a unique addition to the list, which is primarily comprised of architecture and engineering firms, many with histories dating back several decades. With a diverse team of construction consultants, real estate advisors and forensic experts, Xpera Group provides highly specialized technical expertise to attorneys, insurance companies, developers, property owners, lenders, architects and contractors. The firm serves the Western United States, with offices in San Diego and Los Angeles.
“To earn a spot on this prestigious list after just six years in business is a tremendous honor,” said Ted Bumgardner, president and founder of Xpera Group. “Interestingly, many of our co-honorees are not true competitors for us, but rather reflect many of the types of clients we work with every day.”
Xpera Group provides a number of consulting services to architects and engineers, including peer review, design assist, third-party quality assurance and risk management solutions customized to the specific needs of each project.
Founded in 2009, Xpera Group is California's most comprehensive team of real estate advisors, construction consultants, and forensic experts.
