PSMJ Resources Announces A/E/C Building a Better World Award Winner

PSMJ’s exclusive A/E/C Building a Better World Award recognizes an architecture or engineering firm demonstrating the strongest commitment to community improvement by encouraging employee volunteering, donating resources and sharing expertise.

September 17, 2019 (Newton, Mass.)—PSMJ Resources, Inc., the world’s leading authority on effective and profitable architecture and engineering firm management practices, announces the winner of the 2020 A/E/C Building a Better World Award. The 2020 recipient is Core States Group of Ambler, Pennsylvania.

The annual A/E/C Building a Better World Award recognizes firms demonstrating an outstanding commitment to improving lives and communities, through donations of time, resources, creativity and energy. Nominated firms are judged by a select committee based on scored assessments of employee involvement, executive commitment, duration and longevity of programs, and level of impact.

Core States Group’s commitment to give back and help others starts at the top with the firm’s leaders encouraging community involvement from every one of their 325 employees. The firm provides paid time off specifically for community involvement and, since 2015, employees have donated thousands of hours to a wide range of causes. The positive impact inside and outside the firm is powerful.

“Firms nominated for an A/E/C Building a Better World Award come in all sizes, from less than 10 architects to over 10,000 civil engineers. What they share is a realization that giving time and resources to those less fortunate is the right thing to do. And more and more, the most sought-after candidates for open positions are judging firms on their level of community outreach and philanthropy,” says Frank A. Stasiowski, FAIA, Founder and CEO of PSMJ Resources.

“Firms landing the best new architects, engineers, executive and non-technical staff members are the same ones doing their part to build a better world. That’s not a coincidence,” he adds.

PSMJ will honor the A/E/C Building a Better World award-winning firm at their live virtual event – A/E/C THRIVE 2020: The Growth, Profit, and Success Summit for A/E/C Firm Leaders on October 14-16, 2020. This unique conference is an opportunity to hear directly from the leaders of top-performing firms and other industry visionaries on specific growth, profit, and performance improvement practices and how to replicate them.  Learn more at
