Building things is not just what we report on, it's also what we do.

Sure, we don’t build massive and tiny buildings, structures and other elements in the built landscape, but we are still builders. What we build is piles of facts, stats and other sundry information for those that actually build.

Right now, we are in the midst of building something that represents the builders: ENR Southwest Contractors Survey and the Contractor of the Year. Below is a list of those firms that participated this year. In a few weeks, we will have formulated our Contractor of the Year.

If the Top Starts list and results from the Design Firms Survey is any indications, we are expecting a great year.
