Bruner/Cott Named in 10th Annual ARCHITECT 50

Bruner/Cott is honored to again have been ranked in the 10th annual ARCHITECT 50.

The publication calculated scores within three categories to create an overall ranking; business, sustainability, and design. Out of this year’s 160 submissions, Bruner/Cott was named #36 overall, ranking #8 in sustainability, #71 in design, and #112 in business. The firm’s composite score was 82.7 out of 100 possible points.

This year, ARCHITECT revisited its methodology for calculating its sustainability ranking, resulting in a wide array of firms scaling the charts. Sustainability scores were calculated based on the following breakdown:

  • 17% – AIA 2030 Commitment
  • 17% – Energy and water metrics
  • 06% – Employee Certifications
  • 20% – Building Certifications
  • 40% – Score for the green project that best demonstrated a firm’s commitment to sustainability

We are thrilled to be recognized as leaders in sustainable design and are in great company among the other ranking firms.
