Frankfurt-Short-Bruza was named the 2010 Beacon Award Winner in the Charitable Influence Category by the Journal Record Publishing Company.

Celebrating 65 years of rich history of business and community involvement, Frankfurt-Short-Bruza has always been a firm that believes outstanding architecture and engineering is enhanced by good citizenship. The firm's culture is a reflection of that commitment to lasting design and giving back to the community.

As a natural progression of our Leadership Development Program in 2008, FSB formalized our long time outreach focus by formalizing the Community Involvement Initiative. FSB continued to focus on building and enhancing the program in 2009. The purpose of the initiative is to create a firm-wide community involvement program that is ongoing and encourages active participation by leaders of the firm as well as FSB employees.

Helping provide educational opportunities for young people, helping build homes for those who have no shelter, feeding those that are hungry, designing and helping build prison chapels through World Mission Builders, and raising money for cancer research, are but a few of the ways in which FSB employees help their communities.

Employee's interests are matched with the various community organizations. A climate of stewardship and volunteerism are already key components in FSB's culture. Employees are encouraged and supported in their efforts. FSB has a long standing reputation for fostering a "civic involvement" mantra among its employees and is committed to continuing this effort.
