Freese and Nichols, Inc. has been named the winner of the Green Roadway Challenge in the Low Impact Development (LID) Design Competition, hosted by the North Texas Land/Water Sustainability Forum. The team, composed entirely of in-house talent, designed a one-mile stretch of South Lamar in Dallas that incorporated sustainable practices to conserve and preserve resources.

Freese and Nichols, Inc. is a full service professional consulting firm and the first engineering/architecture firm to receive the Malcolm Baldrige National Quality Award. With offices in Texas, Freese and Nichols provides engineering, architecture, environmental science, planning, energy and program management services. In 2013, Freese and Nichols was named one of the “Best Companies to Work For in Texas” by Texas Monthly magazine.

Consistent with Freese and Nichols’ overarching goal of Stewardship of Resources, this winning design incorporated sustainable approaches and innovative thinking, leading to smarter planning and design as part of our integrated project delivery approach. We support our professionals’ ideas through a corporate investment in research and development. This year, funding was allocated to research sustainable practices in municipal roadway design, resulting in the design team’s successful entry in the LID design competition.
