Specialty contracting firms working in the Southeast region of Florida, Georgia and the Carolinas appear to be re-gaining some lost business momentum, according to data from ENR Southeast's annual Top Specialty Contractors survey.
According to this year's survey, Southeast specialty firms collectively reported just over $5.1 billion in revenue from projects located in the states of Florida, Georgia and the Carolinas. That's a roughly $700-million increase from the $4.4-billion collective total that Southeast specialty firms reported a year ago.
Part of this revenue jump can be attributed to an increased number of firms participating in the annual survey. The upcoming ranking—which will publish in September—will include 100 specialty contracting firms, a 33% gain from the 75 that were included on last year's list. And that increased rate of participation is a positive sign of its own, since the depth of ENR Southeast's Top Specialty Contractors ranking has historically ebbed and flowed with the ups and downs of the regional construction market.
But the data shows that the overall gain in regional specialty contracting revenue certainly isn't universal to every firm. In fact, of this year's top 20, only seven firms reported increased revenue, while nine indicated declines. (Four of this year's top 20 firms did not participate in last year's survey and ranking.)
ENR Southeast will publish much more data and analysis in our upcoming September issue. For now, here is an alphabetical list of the top 100 firms that will appear in our annual Top Specialty Contractors ranking.
