In the October issue of ENR California, the spotlight will be on the state’s robust specialty contractors. As part of this special issue, ENR California selects one firm as the 2014 Specialty Contractor of the Year. The firm was selected by the editors of ENR’s regional editions based on its revenue performance, innovative practices, philanthropic involvement and excellence in safety.

And the winning firm is California Drywall! 

Founded in 1946, California Drywall specializes in framing, drywall, lath & plaster, fireproofing and acoustical and specialty ceilings. The firm impressed ENR’s industry judges in last year’s Best of the Best Projects competition with its performance on the Bing Concert Hall at Stanford University. The firm worked on Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara, and is currently involved in the integrated lean project delivery team for the $1-billion Cathedral Hill Hospital in San Francisco. California Drywall has one of the best safety records in the region among specialty contractors.

You can read more about California Drywall in the upcoming issue of ENR California, in which our writers will spotlight the company’s achievements, innovations and culture.

In addition to the Specialty Contractor of the Year spotlight, the issue will feature ENR California’s ranking of the largest subcontractors in the state. From electrical to concrete to steel, we will be ranking the largest firms in a variety of market sectors and specialties by annual revenue.
