NELSON Ranks 9th in Interior Design Giants Ranking

NELSON, a global design, architecture, engineering and consulting services firm, has been named amongst the top 10 in Interior Design Magazine’s 2015 Top 100 Giants Rankings. NELSON improved its position to 9th overall, a leap of 4 spots from the prior year. The annual rankings are released by Interior Design Magazine, a definitive resource for design professionals featuring groundbreaking projects, new products, and real-time industry news, and are based upon key requirements including annual revenue and square footage.

“This year’s Design Giants ranking further reinforces our vision for NELSON’s interiors business,” said John “Ozzie” Nelson Jr., Chairman and CEO. “In the last year alone, NELSON has grown by more than 60 percent and interiors is just one of a number service areas in which we have grown. We’ve added and strengthened our services and expanded into new markets. This unprecedented growth is reflected in this year’s rankings. Interior Design Magazine is a leading resource for the industry, and NELSON is proud to be a part of it. We look forward to the challenge of improving upon these standings for next year’s list.”

Throughout 2014, NELSON strategically combined operations with five new business partners and increased its annual revenue by $24 million or 60 percent. These additions enhanced NELSON’s portfolio and resulted in expanded service lines and practice areas, as well as an overall increase in the firm’s success.

Noteworthy projects completed in 2014 that contributed to NELSON’s ranking include Google, Verizon, Bank of America, HSBC, Bed Bath and Beyond, Polaris, Radian, Fieldglass Inc., and Biogen Idec.
