As anyone who seen the Las Vegas skyline can attest, some of the most well-known hotels and resorts in the world reside in this locale. If any construction firm has cracked the code to successfully delivering these palatial projects, it is M.J. Dean Construction. The general contracting firm, which began in 1989, offers clients consulting, cost analysis, construction, operations and project management in the Las Vegas area.

With the economy in the doldrums, many contractors across the United States and Canada have been forced to close their doors, or at the very least, reduce their staffs to cut down overhead. The idea of a general building contracting company growing during these difficult times is practically unheard of, but this is precisely the case for Lavergne Construction.

The community of Coral Springs, Fla., takes pride in its places of worship. Thirteen churches dot the community within a one-mile radius. With church attendance growing each month, GRYCON LLC has been contracted to build an addition to The Church by the Glades in Coral Springs. The CBTG has outgrown their existing facility and must have seven services per weekend to meet the need of their growing congregation.

If you’ve ever landed at Puerto Rico’s Luis Muñoz Marín International Airport in San Juan, you might have noticed its striking architecture, with sweeping wavelike designs, curved glass and complex angles that evoke a body at sea. It’s a style of architecture that lets visitors know without a doubt they’re on a Caribbean island.

Five years ago, the principals at Alan Jeskey Builders (AJB) decided to let go of the company’s residential division and switch focus to design/build projects for the commercial sector. It was a wise decision that Curtis Cummings, CEO of the company, credits to instinct gained through decades of construction experience in the southern Nevada market.

For ST Fabrication Inc., every project is more than just work, President Jesse Cherian says. “We don’t look at jobs as one-offs,” he says. “We look at developing relationships [with clients] so that we have long-term relationships where we are doing one job after another [for them].”

Mechanical contractors have to produce a lot of pipe and sheet metal duct, so if they are going to be profitable, the efficiency of those operations is critical. With that in mind, Miller Bonded Inc. started building a new $1.7 million pipe fabrication facility next to its Albuquerque, N.M., headquarters in March 2010 to meet the needs of a recovering economy.

After working as a division of the construction firm W.W. Gay Inc. for about 10 years, Islands Mechanical Contractor (IMC) Inc. had developed a strong reputation for quality government work and spun off to become its own entity in February 2001. It started as a relatively small operation, but its business nearly tripled after just a year on its own.
