AOA, a leading immersive experience design, production, and project management company, has been included on Engineering News Record’s list of the top 100 construction management/project management firms.
AOA has announced that Engineering News Record (ENR) has named it in its list of the top 100 construction management/project management firms. ENR publishes definitive lists each year highlighting the top firms serving the construction sector.
Mike Ostendorf, AOA Co-Founder and CEO says, “We owe this mark of prestige and success to our clients: to their vision and their confidence in us. AOA has helped create some of the world’s most visible and storied attractions, integrating multiple disciplines and technologies.
“That’s especially valuable to owners today, who are likely to be working with fewer staff and tighter budgets, and in need of a robust external team to dovetail with their internal team.”
Mark of success
“AOA teams support clients from concept to opening day with a turnkey suite of professional services under one roof, including world-class project management,” adds Ostendorf.
“As a mid-size company of about 55 employees, we’re small enough to be nimble and responsive but large enough to handle anything that comes up – and there’s always a project manager on board to support communication, collaboration and best practices.”
AOA’s current projects include work on Meow Wolf’s immersive experiences in Las Vegas and Denver, as well as the new Mote Science Education Aquarium in Sarasota, Florida, where the company is responsible for project management and show design from start to finish.
The company has a portfolio of high-profile, public-facing projects, valued between $2 million and $400 million, including immersive entertainment environments, live shows, hospitality spaces, resorts, themed dining and retail, architecture and show set design, rides and more. It has worked with major Fortune 500 companies and top brands such as Disney, Blackstone and Coca-Cola.
Earlier this year, AOA also announced that it has been named in Inc. Magazine’s annual list of America’s fastest-growing private companies, the Inc. 5000, for the third time.
