KJWW Engineering Wins National Marketing Excellence Award

Kansas City, Kan., Dec. 10, 2012 – KJWW Engineering Consultants has received a national award for its year-long marketing campaign celebrating the firm’s 50th anniversary in 2011.

The firm placed third in the integrated marketing category of the 2012 Zweig Marketing Letter Marketing Excellence Awards, which recognize the exceptional efforts of architecture, engineering, planning, and environmental consulting firms in the U.S. and Canada. KJWW’s campaign was designed to foster pride and recognition both inside and outside the company.

“Our message was clear and simple to our clients and employees -- and that was one of appreciation for their loyalty to and support of a company that achieved many great accomplishments in its first 50 years,” says Paul VanDuyne, president of KJWW.

In the contest, exceptional marketing pieces which achieved measurable results and/or design excellence were evaluated by a panel of judges composed of industry practitioners and experts from ZweigWhite, a national business management resource.

KJWW’s campaign resulted in increased work from repeat clients and increased productivity from staff. Elements of the campaign included a 50th anniversary book for employees and treat bags mailed each month to clients with different candy each time. “We wanted to keep the campaign light and fun,” says VanDuyne. The goal was to keep the company name “top of mind” with a monthly mailer versus a one-time gift – capturing the KJWW name recognition and building on firm-client loyalty.

KJWW Engineering provides professional consulting engineering services in planning, design, energy modeling, BIM, construction administration, and systems commissioning. The firm was named the 2011 Midwest Designer of the Year and is ranked among the Top 250 Design Firms and 11th among engineering firms in the U.S.

KJWW employs more than 450 full-time personnel in 12 offices across the U.S. and internationally. Headquartered in the Quad-Cities, additional locations include Chicago and Naperville, Ill.; Indianapolis; St. Louis; Madison, Wis.; Des Moines and Cedar Rapids, Iowa; Kansas City, Kansas; Phoenix, Ariz.; Ahmedabad, India; and Dubai in the United Arab Emirates.
