Puget Sound Business Journal’s ranking includes employee confidence in HNTB’s leadership.

BELLEVUE, Wash. (Aug. 26, 2022) – The Bellevue office of HNTB Corporation, an infrastructure solutions firm, is among the top 100 Best Workplaces in Washington state, according to the Puget Sound Business Journal.

The ranking conducted by the publication recognizes companies with the highest levels of employee satisfaction and engagement as measured from input to a confidential survey assessing employee attitudes toward the firm’s leadership, culture, training and work environment. An evaluation of HNTB’s corporate practices, policies, philosophy and demographics also are included in the ranking.

The top 100 firms were revealed in the June 6, 2022, issue of the Puget Sound Business Journal. Final rankings were unveiled at an in-person event at T-Mobile Park on Aug. 19 where HNTB ranked 22nd in the extra-large company category.

“As we continue to serve clients in the Seattle area and across the country, this is a tremendous honor for our local HNTB office. It confirms what we’ve known for a long time: HNTB is a top-tier employer of choice,” said Kevin Collins, PE, Washington State office leader. “We strive to provide a collaborative, inclusive environment where every person has the opportunity for personal and professional growth. This honor only intensifies our drive to have the strongest teams working on the most challenging infrastructure projects.”

HNTB first expanded into the Seattle area in 1960 and opened its Bellevue office 41 years ago.

Since January 2020, HNTB has grown its workforce from 215 to more than 320 employees to meet the demands for transportation planning, engineering, program management and construction management services in the Puget Sound region. The firm anticipates continued aggressive growth in future years.

HNTB has been involved in some of the region’s most high-profile, complex infrastructure programs. The firm has experienced substantial growth largely due to the robust projects of its Puget Sound clients, which include the Washington State Department of Transportation, Sound Transit, the City of Bellevue, the Port of Seattle and the Seattle Department of Transportation, among others. HNTB has been working with these clients to provide more equitable and accessible transportation options for all in the broader community.

The firm’s signature infrastructure projects in the region include Sound Transit’s East Link,  Lynnwood Link and West Seattle and Ballard Link Extension projects; the Alaskan Way Viaduct Replacement Program; Mercer Corridor improvements in Seattle; the third runway at Seattle-Tacoma International Airport; the second Tacoma Narrows Bridge; Washington State Department of Transportation General Engineering Consultant Services for I-405, SR 509/SR 167 Gateway Program and the Northwest Region General Engineering Consultant Services; the South Park Bascule Bridge Replacement in Seattle; Mount Baker Ridge Tunnel; historic work on I-5 dating back to the 1960s; and the Tilikum Crossing Bridge in Portland, Oregon.
