Looking Back at a Great 2013, and Looking Forward to 2014

December 23, 2013 by Will Schnier P.E.

As Christmas and the end of the year approach, we want to thank all of our clients, co-consultants, and our families.


2013 was a tremendous year at BIG RED DOG! We grew our presence in Houston and San Antonio, and The Austin Business Journal named BIG RED DOG the 5th Fastest Growing Company in Central Texas.


We’ve also had the pleasure of working with clients who are helping these Texas cities move forward in an exciting and thoughtful way.


We’re proud of the people who make BIG RED DOG what it is, and to help them celebrate the holidays with their families we are giving every team member paid holiday between Dec. 25 and New Year’s Day.


BRD has an ongoing commitment to making a difference in our local communities, and several BRD team members volunteered their time this year in Austin and in San Antonio. If you’re interested in finding volunteer opportunities, read about opportunities here.
