ENR Mountain States is busy finalizing the rankings for our annual top general contractors of 2018. These lists are based on 2017 revenues for work on projects located in the Mountain States region (Utah, Colorado, Wyoming, Montana, Idaho and North and South Dakota), as reported to us by the firms themselves.

Early results show that revenues last year for the region’s contractors were up in most areas, and especially for firms located in Salt Lake City and Denver who have strong commercial and institutional portfolios of work underway.

The following are the current contenders for the top positions in this year’s GC rankings in both part of the region. First, the top 20 in Colorado and Wyoming and the Dakotas, presented in alphabetical (not ranked) order. Note that these could change as our research progresses toward publication of the ranked lists in our August issue.

Those firms are: Adolfson & Peterson Construction, Balfour Beatty US, Flatiron Construction Corp., FCI Constructors, GE Johnson Construction, GH Phipps Construction Cos., Haselden Construction, Hensel Phelps Construction, RC Andersen LLC, JE Dunn Construction, Kiewit Corp., Primoris Services Corp., Turner Construction, Mortenson Construction, PCL Construction Services, Saunders Construction, SEMA Construction, Swinerton Builders, Milender White, Kraemer North America LLC.

The top 15 (non-ranked, alpha-order only) firms in the Intermountain area (Utah, Idaho and Montana) for 2018 include: Big-D Construction, Engineered Structures Inc. (ESI), Granite Construction, Hogan & Associates Construction, Jacobsen Construction, Kiewit Corp., Layton Construction, Okland Construction, Staker Parson Materials & Construction, Sletten Cos., Wadman Corp., Holder Construction Co., R&O Construction, Westland Construction, Hughes General Contractors.

Remember, these firms are not presented here in ranked order. These contractors are the most likely of those in the region who submitted revenue totals to make our final cut, but this list is not yet final. After further research, we will announce our contractors of the year for the region, so stay tuned.
