HNTB Corporation moved into the top six ranking of airport consulting firms in the United States and is listed among the top 20 design firms in several other market sectors, according to Engineering News-Record’s Top Design Firms Sourcebook for 2017.

“From airside to landside, HNTB has a long history of delivering a wide range of planning, design and management services for major airport development programs that include passenger terminals, runways and surface transportation facilities,” said Laddie Irion, HNTB national aviation market sector leader and senior vice president. “Our rise in ENR’s airport rankings is a result of our success in winning and delivering some of the most significant airport infrastructure projects in the country.
