ENR Southeast's recent Top Contractors survey shows that while the region's general contractors and construction-management firms, as a whole, are continuing to experience revenue growth, the Southeast's largest contractors are posting the biggest gains.
According to this year's survey, 112 firms collectively reported just over $21 billion in 2014 revenue from the Southeast states of Florida, Georgia, North Carolina and South Carolina. That's a roughly 5.6% increase over last year's total, when 117 survey firms reported a group total of just over $19.9 billion in 2013 revenue
However, a closer look at the numbers reveals a better view of what firms are growing the fastest. For instance, the most recent Top Contractors survey shows the top 10-ranked firms collectively reported slightly more than $7.9 billion in Southeast revenue for 2014. By comparison, last year's top 10 reported a bit over $7.1 billion in revenue. Together, that shows that revenue reported by each respective year's top 10 firms grew by about 11.2%
Looking at the rest of the Top Contractors respondents reveals a different growth rate. As a group, the firms not ranked in the top 10 reported roughly $13.1 billion in 2014 revenue, or about 2.4% better than the nearly $12.8 billion that group revealed in the survey conducated a year ago.
It should be noted that the this year's and last year's surveys did not result in the exact same firms responding. So, we should hesitate before drawing any significant conclusions. With that in mind, ENR Southeast will dig further into this data when we publish our annual Top Contractors ranking in the July 6 print edition. For now, here's an alphabetical preview list of this year's ranking.
