Hot Firm Awards

At the end of this three-day conference, there was a Black-Tie Awards Gala and dinner, where they presented awards for six separate awards programs. PK Electrical placed #85 on the Hot Firm list for 2019. This list recognizes the 100 fastest-growing A/E/C firms in the United States and Canada.
