ENR Mountain States is busy finalizing the rankings for our annual ranking of the largest general contractors of 2016. The lists are based on 2015 revenues for work on projects located in the Mountain States region (Utah, Colorado, Wyoming, Montana and Idaho), as reported to us by the firms themselves.

Early results show that revenues for the some of the region’s mid-sized contractors dipped slightly in some sectors, but most of the larger firms reported increases over the previous year.

The following are the current contenders for the top 20 positions in this year’s GC rankings in Colorado and Wyoming, presented in random (not ranked) order: Brinkmann Constructors, Swinerton Builders, Shaw Construction, Turner Construction, Hensel Phelps Construction, GH Phipps Construction, FCI Constructors, Haselden Construction, Ames Construction, Adolfson & Peterson Construction, Balfour Beatty US, JE Dunn Construction, PCL Construction Services, Saunders Construction, GE Johnson Construction, Kiewit, Beck Group, Flatiron Construction Corp., Bryan Construction and Mortenson Construction.

The top 20 (non-ranked, random-order only) firms in the Intermountain area for 2014 include: Wright Bros., Ames Construction, Whitaker Construction, Brahma Group Inc., Sletten Cos., Hughes General Contractors, Westland Construction, Hogan & Associates Construction, Wadman Corp., R&O Construction, Engineered Structures Inc., Layton Construction, Staker Parson Cos., Jacobsen Construction, Big-D Construction, Kiewit Corp., Garney Holding Co., Stacey Enterprises, McAlvain Group and Okland Construction.

Remember, those firms are not presented here in ranked order. These contractors are the most likely of all those in the region who submitted revenue totals to make our final top 20 cuts, but the lists are not yet final. The ranked lists will appear in the August issue of ENR Mountain States magazine.

After our research is complete, we will announce our contractors of the year for the region, so stay tuned.
