ERIE – Urban Engineers is celebrating its 60th anniversary. The firm opened in August of 1960 with a staff of seven and has grown to a staff of 475 with 15 offices across the country. To celebrate the firm’s culture, people, partners, and projects, Urban has been running an online campaign called #UR60N – pronounced Urban 60 – that highlighted a different aspect of the firm each month building up to the anniversary this August.
“Over the past 60 years, we’ve worked hard to create an inclusive and flexible work environment for all of our employees,” said Kenneth R. Fulmer, PE, president and CEO of Urban. “I am proud that we have maintained a ‘family’ atmosphere as our firm grew over the years. Our #UR60N campaign was a great showcase for what we value and what our vision is for the future. This week we celebrate this important landmark, and I thank everyone individually for helping us get here.”
Urban’s 50th anniversary focused on its history. In anticipation of this week’s 60th anniversary, Urban shared themed stories over the past 11 months about staff, culture, partners, and work with an eye toward where the firm is heading. Themes included career agility, diversity, resiliency in infrastructure, and work/life balance. All blog posts celebrating at the firm can be viewed here.
