Albuquerque, N.M.-based Reid & Associates Design Builders has served the New Mexico construction market with design/build services for more than 20 years. Founded on principles of quality and innovation, Reid & Associates was the first general contractor in the state to take the design/build approach for the delivery of commercial and industrial properties, Executive Vice President Bill Smith says.

When it comes to complex underground utility projects, an experienced contractor realizes soil conditions will make or break a successful delivery. Kenny Construction sent a project team to Columbus, Ohio, that understands what it takes to deliver the Olentangy-Scioto Intercepting Sewer Augmentation Relief Sewer (OARS) project in a joint venture with Obayashi.

The recession may have hit the real estate market particularly hard in Southern California, but it would be difficult to make that claim based on the performance of Advanced Real Estate Services’ (ARES) portfolio. The investment company and property manager owns and operates more than $1 billion in multifamily residential properties. This portfolio consists of more than 6,000 rental units in Orange and Los Angeles counties.

For Thompson Centres Inc., the future is looking up – literally and figuratively. The Mississauga, Ontario-based retail and commercial developer is making plans to double its number of projects and take its developments vertical. “We see a lot of retailers looking at the inner city, and my project manager and myself have experience in high-rise condominium development as well as retail,” President Louis Meandro says. “We’re planning to focus on mixed-use developments in city environments.”

For more than 30 years, Sirina Fire Protection Chairman Anthony Florez partially owned a New York metropolitan area fire sprinkler company not unlike Sirina. However, after a falling out with his business partner in 1990, he was forced to choose between an early retirement and starting over again. Although wise investments over the years had left him financially secure, he hated to end his career on a sour note and knew he’d miss the daily challenges of running a fire protection contracting business. 

Large national development corporations may have the financing and access to resources to be profitable wherever they launch satellite offices. However, these firms rarely match the regional know-how of a family owned company that has spent generations in a specific area. 

With more than 100 locations and 2,500 employees  serving customers in 41 states and a dominant national market share in post-frame building construction, Morton Buildings Inc. is a large company by any standard. Although its size and status give it a number of capabilities that make it a go-to builder in the agricultural industry and other sectors, Morton retains the kind of personal touch small, local contractors are known for.

With capabilities including construction management, land planning and property management, York Development Group Inc. is a one-stop service provider to commercial clients.
