Our 30th Anniversary
In honor of BBGM's 30th anniversary, we'll be digging through the archives, pulling out all the gems, throwbacks and achievements we can get our hands on. For this first installment, a brief look at the rise of BBGM.
In our latest 30th Anniversary highlight, we're turning the clock back - 10 years to be precise.
2007 marked an interesting time for BBGM, and the world at large. Just prior to the 2008 recession, business was booming. BBGM was a well-established leader in the Architecture & Design industry by this time, with a strong foothold in the hospitality industry.
Although BBGM is widely known as a leader in hospitality design, the firm's repertoire also carries a wide array of projects for federal, state and local government entities. By 2007, BBGM had amassed an impressive list of high-profile projects in the DMV region, with projects ranging from Quantico to the Pentagon. Notable projects that received BBGM design services in 2007 included the Lorton Workhouse Arts Center in Virginia, the Pentagon Library & Conference Center, several structures at the Quantico Marine Corps Base, the Aircraft Research Support Facility in Patuxent River and the National Maritime Technology Information Center in Bethesda, to name a few.
In addition to completing notable projects in this timeframe, BBGM designs garnered no less than a dozen awards – in a single year – with merits from multiple organizations in several sectors. BBGM industry rankings and awards came in from around the world, recognizing both new construction and rehabilitation projects, including the following honors:
We take great pride in these accomplishments, and in providing services to those organizations that support our great nation. If the first few months are any indication, we believe that 2017 will be a stellar year, for BBGM, our associates and the industry as a whole.
Until next time, here’s to another successful decade of exploring, innovating, creating and growing.
As reported in the 2016 Giants 300 Report by Building Design + Construction, BBGM ranked #29 on the list of Hotel Sector Giants. Rounding out a trifecta of strong rankings, BBGM reinforces its longevity and status as a major player in the hospitality industry with this latest rankings update.
