According to Rodgers, the company's overall 2012 gain was fueled largely by growth in the health-care market, which included three new greenfield hospital contracts. Again, based on ENR Southeast's survey data, Rodgers stood out among health-care contractors, too. For instance, though Rodgers again ranked as the Southeast's fifth-large health-care builder—as it did on last year's ranking—its roughly 50% growth in this sector easily outpaced the four higher-ranked firms, who either reported declines in their health-care work or else eked out a slight gain.

ENR Southeast will elaborate on these and other factors in Rodgers' selection as "Contractor of the Year" in our upcoming July edition.
