While our revenues have earned us an Engineering News-Record Top 500 ranking since 1972, what keeps us on top is our quality of service. Our approach is simple. Our corporate culture is one of close collaboration among our multidisciplinary project teams, combined with strong management leadership. Regardless of size or complexity, we leverage our unique insight and perspective to move projects forward in a timely and cost-effective manner, while facilitating clear and open lines of communication. We are also proud of GRW's large amount of repeat business. For example, since 1964 GRW has provided services to one of our very first clients, Keeneland, a combination Thoroughbred race course and sales company located in the heart of Kentucky's famed Bluegrass Region. The quality of our work is demonstrated in the numerous awards our projects have won, both on national and state levels.
