Gensler surpassed $1 billion in architectural revenue in 2014, setting a record and maintaining its leading status for the fourth consecutive year on RECORD’s annual Top 300 Architecture Firms list, which ranks companies based on earnings from the prior year.
Gensler made huge gains last year, particularly in domestic revenue, which totaled $778.45 million, and major international clients have tapped the firm to help them expand into the U.S. market. (Gensler recently designed Metropolis in Los Angeles, a $1 billion mixed-use project by China-based developer Greenland.) “Because Gensler is a global firm with 46 offices across five continents, we partner with clients that also have a global footprint,” says Gensler’s co-CEO Andy Cohen. “Clients are looking for opportunities beyond their markets.”
