Gresham Smith has been named a Best Place to Work by the Nashville Business Journal. Honored in the “giant” workplace category, the recognition was based on feedback received from the firm’s more than 400 Nashville employees when asked questions in several categories, including the firm’s culture, team effectiveness and trust in senior leadership. Staff celebrated the recognition at an internal event and representatives from the firm attended the official luncheon to accept the award on Thursday, May 9th.

“The culture that we have created at Gresham Smith is a direct result of the genuine commitment our staff shows to their colleagues and clients day-in and day-out,” commented Gresham Smith Chairman and CEO Al Pramuk. “As an organization, our talented and creative staff are working to solve some of the region’s most exciting and difficult growth and development issues. Our team is driven to be a part of industry, civic and charitable organizations in order to give back in a multitude of ways to help our community continue to thrive. While we offer meaningful and challenging work, we will continue to strive to provide an environment where all of our employees feel supported both personally and professionally.”

Gresham Smith was founded in Nashville in 1967 and has played a significant role in shaping the region’s growth and development. Over 52 years, the team has been a part of several significant projects, and is currently working on a range of projects in Middle Tennessee including Nashville Yards, construction management for Metro Water Services’ Overflow Abatement Program, design of an LG Electronics Manufacturing Facility and an interchange modification study for TDOT at the I-40 @ Donelson Pike (SR 255) Interchange.
