Kleinfelder’s emerging international business was recognized by ENR, which ranked the company No. 42 on its Top 50 Designers in International Markets List. This is the first time Kleinfelder has made the list. The company’s international operations have been growing since 2012, when Kleinfelder acquired Ecobiological Group and Alliance Engineering & Consulting, two Australian environmental firms.
