The Binkley & Barfield Family of Companies (BBI) has reached a major milestone of more than 200 employees statewide. The increase is reflective of a steady yet rapid growth of delivering high quality engineering solutions to municipal, state, federal and private sector markets. To celebrate the growth, BBI held an ice cream social for its employees and awarded a $200 gift card to the 200th employee hired by the family of companies.
BBI has continuously provided public infrastructure, transportation and utility engineering capabilities and currently houses more than 155 employees at the corporate headquarters in Houston. With a diverse group of engineers and specialists providing innovative technical solutions, BBI has been able to meet customer demands for response time, quality deliverables, and schedule and budget expectations with a high-level of trust and integrity the company has been known to offer over the firm's history.
“From our company's beginnings 45 years ago, our corporate philosophy has always been to provide the best working environment and to treat our employees as our most important asset,” said Larry Barfield, P.E., F.NSPE, President of Binkley & Barfield, Inc.
BBI was recently ranked #385 out of 500 Top Design Firms in the U.S. by the Engineering News Record, up 61 spots from last year’s ranking of #446 in 2015, and also ranked #42 on the 2016 ENR Texas & Louisiana Top Design Firms List. In addition, BBI received the 2016 When Work Works Award, which honors the company’s use of effective workplace strategies to increase business and employee success.
