Clayco’s Continued Growth Recognized in Engineering News-Record’s Top 400 Contractors List

CHICAGO/ST. LOUIS – May 24, 2019 – Engineering News-Record (ENR) released its annual report of the top 400 contractors, naming Clayco number 32. The company was also ranked 19th on the list of top domestic building and 27th on the list for new contracts. Clayco reported record revenue of $2.68 billion in 2018.

This is Clayco’s sixth consecutive year of growth in ENR’s Top 400 rankings, which is evidence of the businesses continued advancement within the contracting industry. In 2018, Clayco was ranked 36th.

Clayco’s yearly improvement on the top 400 list is punctuated by the company’s ability to gain new business, as demonstrated by its rank on the list of top new contracts. Companies in ENR’s Top 400 contractors are ranked by construction revenue in 2018 in ($) millions. Figures include prime construction contracts, shares of joint ventures, subcontracts, the construction portion of design-construct contracts and construction management-at-risk contracts when the firm’s risks are similar to those of a general contractor. Figures also include the value of installed equipment when a firm has prime responsibility for specifying and procuring it within the scope of its construction contract.

“We are thrilled to again receive this recognition from one of our industry’s most prominent and trusted publications,” said Bob Clark, Chairman and CEO of Clayco. “Our team’s continuous hard work and focus has led us to this path of upward trajectory. We are constantly looking for more innovative and efficient methods of developing, designing and constructing high-quality, mission-critical projects for our clients.”

As the industry as a whole continues to grow, Clayco’s advancement compliments the company’s mission of looking beyond the walls of facilities at how buildings impact a community.
